International Phone Dialing Codes – and List of Internet Top Level Domains - TLD Domains List

Standards for Telecommunications

The world body that coordinates the standards for telecommunications is called International Telecommunication Union (ITU) which is based in Geneva, Switzerland. ITU started with the formation of the International Telegraph Union in 1865 and became a United Nations agency in 1947.

Phone Calling Code

Every country has a phone calling code defined by ITU and that code is called International Direct Dialling (IDD) or International Subscriber Dialling (ISD). This phone calling code is what you need to make an international call.

How to Make an International Call

1. Get the international call prefix. International dialing prefix is specific to the country you are calling from and it’s usually "00" or "011" or “000” for almost all countries. You dial the dialling prefix number first.

2. Get the country phone dialing code of the country you want to call. This code can be between 1 digit number to 3 digit number. This is the number you dial immediately after step 1 above.

3. Call the number that may have been provided to you by the person you want to call. This would usually include the area code/city code and the local number of the person you want to call

Example: We want to call John Smith in London, UK, when we are in US and Mr John Smith has given his telephone number as (020) 8123456X.

1. We dial 011 - International dialling prefix for US

2. We dial 44 - International Phone Dialling Code for UK

3. We dial 20 8123456X – omitting the zero in front of that number

How to Make an International Call Using Mobile Phone

If we want to call John Smith using a mobile phone (cell phone), we do it as follows:

1. Just dial plus (+), the country code, area code and the phone number as follows +44 20 8123456X and you are done.

Top Level Domain

With the coming up of the internet, many abbreviations have come with it. For example, what do we call .com (dot Com) thing we all seem to use when we talk of internet in the URL extension? That .com (dot com) thing is what is called Top Level Domain. A top level domain is therefore an identification label that defines administrative autonomy and control on the internet which is based on the Domain Name System (DNS).

Country-Code Top-Level Domains

Other than .COM, we do also have .GOV, .EDU, .ORG, and .NET. This category of top level domains is now called generic top-level domains. There are others top level domain coding such as .US, .UK, .NZ, .BR, .AU, .FR, .JP, .CN, .ZA, etc., which are abbreviated using two-letter ISO country code. These are called country-code top-level domains.

1. .AERO – For use in the air transport industry
