TLD Enumerations

Lists of every IANA TLD in various formats. The lists may be continuously updated using the included update utility that pulls the latest data from IANA.

Usage

Because the lists are provided in universial CSV and JSON formats, they can be easily utilitized in most programming environments. Additionally, for convenience, some native programming language formats have also been provided.

Node Usage

  • use npm to add the tld-enum package to your project

    $ npm install tld-enum --save
  • add the module to your source

    const tldEnum = require('tld-enum');
  • access the list by using the tldEnum.tldList array

    const tldEnum = require('tld-enum');
    console.log(tldEnum.list); //an array with every IANA TLD

    The following example...

    const tldEnum = require('tld-enum');
     
    console.log("There are " + tldEnum.list.length + " IANA TLDs");
     
    let tldCheck;
     
    tldCheck = "com";
    console.log("Is '" + tldCheck + "' a real TLD?");
    if (tldEnum.list.indexOf(tldCheck.toLowerCase()) != -1) {
        console.log("  yes");
    } else {
        console.log("  no");
    }
     
    tldCheck = "somethingWeird";
    console.log("Is '" + tldCheck + "' a real TLD?");
    if (tldEnum.list.indexOf(tldCheck.toLowerCase()) != -1) {
        console.log("  yes");
    } else {
        console.log("  no");
    }

    Should produce the following output...

    There are 1577 IANA TLDs
    Is 'com' a real TLD?
       yes
    Is 'somethingWeird' a real TLD?
       no

More Node Examples

PHP Usage

  • use composer to add the katmore/tld-enum package to your project

    $ composer require katmore/tld-enum
  • access the list by using the \TldEnum\TldList::TLD_LIST class constant array

    <?php
    print_r(\TldEnum\TldList::TLD_LIST); //an array with every IANA TLD 

    The following example...

    <?php
    use TldEnum\TldList;
     
    echo "There are " . count(TldList::TLD_LIST. " IANA TLDs\n";
     
    $tldCheck = "com";
    echo "Is '$tldCheck' a real TLD?\n";
    if (in_array(strtolower($tldCheck), TldList::TLD_LIST)) {
        echo "  yes\n";
    } else {
        echo "  no\n";
    }
     
    $tldCheck = "somethingWeird";
    echo "Is '$tldCheck' a real TLD?\n";
    if (in_array(strtolower($tldCheck), TldList::TLD_LIST)) {
        echo "  yes\n";
    } else {
        echo "  no\n";
    }

    Should produce the following output...

    There are 1577 IANA TLDs
    Is 'com' a real TLD?
       yes
    Is 'somethingWeird' a real TLD?
       no

Updating the TLD format files

All TLD List Formats can be updated with the latest data from IANA by using the TLD Update Utility.

$ bin/devel/update-formats.sh

TLD Update Utility Prerequisites

  • Node.js version 8.11 or higher.

  • (Optional) PHP command-line version 7.2 or higher, to re-generate the PHP format files.

  • The devDependencies from package.json must be available.

    • If tld-enum was installed in an outside project using npm, then the tld-enum dev dependencies must be installed manually, as in the following example:

      npm install async-request --save-dev
      npm install cheerio --save-dev
      npm install commander --save-dev
      npm install country-data --save-dev
      npm install countryjs --save-dev
      npm install csv-parse --save-dev
      npm install csv-stringify --save-dev
      npm install es6-promisify --save-dev
      npm install fs --save-dev
      npm install fs-extra --save-dev
      npm install md5-file --save-dev
      npm install pathinfo --save-dev
      npm install request --save-dev
      npm install tmp --save-dev
    • If tld-enum was installed in an outside project using npm, then the TLD Update Utility can be executed from the node_module directory, as in the following example:

      node_modules/tld-enum/bin/devel/update-formats.sh

TLD Update Utility Usage

usage:
  update-formats.sh [-h]|[-q][format file options...]
 
-h,--help: Print a help message and exit.
-q,--quiet: Print only critical messages.
 
format file options:
  --force-php: Creating the PHP format files is mandatory.
  --skip-php: Always skip creating the PHP format files.
  --skip-csv: Use existing tlds.csv and do not download new data from IANA.

TLD Update Helpers

Internally, the TLD Update Utility uses multiple "helper" scripts to generate the full set of native format lists. These individual "helper" scripts should not be directly executed except for development and troubleshooting purposes.
