What is the longest TLD you can get for a domain name?


So today I was thinking, what is the longest TLD or “top level domain” you can get for your new domain name?

Doing a bit of googling I found a list of TLDs that iana.org puts out, threw together some scripting and magically you have a list sorted by length. Load up terminal (if your are on a Mac) and run the following command

curl -s http://data.iana.org/TLD/tlds-alpha-by-domain.txt | tail -n+2 | awk '{ print length(), $0 | "sort -n" }'

As of this writing the longest english one is cancerresearch

That last one, the long one is from German, they do financial advise funny, their domain name is dvag.de which is quite short. I expect many more crazy long ones from across the pond.
