Quiz Description

This quiz contains trivia about generic and country-code top-level domains (TLDs), such as .com or .us. Note: if the answer is one or more TLDs, you do not need to include the dot to get full credit. If the question asks for an "address", we are looking for the information to the left and right of the dot (e.g.: heroukapp.com).
