It is actually six two-letter TLDs. Meanwhile .gg, .im, and .je are ccTLDs, the ISO page has the grandfathered .ac and .uk cases, and ICANN recently added .eu based on a reserved code element. Using official links instead of links to easily editable pages would be good, such pages often attract the attention of editors wishing to publish their own ideas about [pick] Cyprus, Kosovo, Macedonia, Palestine, SMOM, Somaliland, Taiwan, Tibet, and so on. > http://www.commonsenseadvisory.org does not work.
