.tv is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the island nation of Tuvalu. Except for reserved names like .com.tv, .net.tv, .org.tv and others, any person in the world can register a .tv domain for a fee. The Tuvalu government receives a quarterly payment of US$1,000,000 for use of the top-level domain.
The domain name is popular, and thus economically valuable, because it is an abbreviation of the word 'television' (other similar ccTLDs are .fm, .am, .cd, and .dj). The domain is currently operated by dotTV, a VeriSign company. The Tuvalu government owns twenty percent of the company.
Since .TV enables you to protect your business online, a domain with .TV makes your web address unique and easy to memorize. A .TV extension is doing much more, helping you reach and communicate with the audience in the world.
