List of Domain Extensions - Country List and Scam Use

List of Domain Extensions - Country List

This list will help you determine the country in which a website is based, if the extensions (the letters after the last dot) are not one of the common extensions (like .com, .org, .gov, .edu, etc.). But also notice that some countries allow foreigners and foreign businesses to register.  For example the Cocos Islands allows anyone in the world to buy a domain with the extension .cc).  Scammers that build websites to scam people use this as a way to disguise their true location or to pretend they are in another country.
