TLD
Top Level Domain
The final part of an internet domain name.  e.g. Every domain that ends with .com is part of the .com top-level-domain.  Domain name records branch out like a family tree.
In Australia, the .au ending is the top-level-domain (in this case it's a country code, a ccTLD), and .com.au is a second-level domain.  Then you have third-level domains, such as sa.edu.au. The family tree (so to speak), of domain names, is read backwards from the end of the phrase.
