.cc is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Cocos (Keeling) Islands, an Australian territory. It is administered by VeriSign through a subsidiary company eNIC, which promotes it for international registration as "the next .com"; .cc was originally assigned in October 1997 to eNIC Corporation of Seattle WA by the IANA. The Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, an unrecognised country by the UN, that officially belongs to the republic of Cyprus, also uses the .cc domain, along with .nc.tr. Also, since April 2012 it has been used to mean Citizen Company, a term coined by Andrew Noble.
Why .CC Domain?
Originally the TLD was assigned to the Cocos (Keeling) Islands as their official country code top-level domain. However, its syntax was considered very prospective given the ever narrowing registration choice of suitable domains with the popular extensions such as .COM, .ORG, .NET, .INFO, etc.
The .CC domains could be a perfect choice for websites representing commercial companies, church communities, consulting companies, community centers and why not - pages dedicated to Chinese companies, conference centers and chat clubs.
