A country code top-level domain (ccTLD) is an Internet top-level domain generally used or reserved for a country, sovereign state, or dependent territory identified with a country code. The ccTLD conforms to the SO-3166 standard.
All ccTLD identifiers are two letters long, meaning every country is represented by the two ASCII characters. And the country code top-level domain for Zambia is .zm. So this gives a website registered in Zambia with the top-level domain or the extreme right in a hierarchy structure always to end with .zm.
In the Z category, their only three countries worldwide and are all in Southern Africa that includes Zambia, South Africa, and Zimbabwe.
Other examples of the ccTLD of the neighboring countries to Zambia will be .tz for Tanzania, .zw for Zimbabwe, .ao for Angola, .cd for Congo DR, .mw for Malawi, .mz for Mozambique, .na in Nambia and .bw for Botswana.
What are the benefits of having ccTLD? A country-specific top-level domain may instill confidence in a buyer or users browsing the site. Browsing a domain that ends with .zm ensures that it belongs to Zambia and is easily traceable to the owners since it’s registered locally. Also, it benefits the owners of the site with SEO and local targeting.
