The Caribbean continues to be wide open for domainers, but very few understand this market. I would argue that Caribbean domains are just as important as any other geographic region on this planet. I know of two domainers; Frank Schilling and Sandor Panton.

Belize- [.BZ]





Grenada- [.GD]



St. Lucia-[.LC]

St. Vincent-[.VC]

Turks & Caicos- [.TC]

Everything you read on the web is connected to a domain. Domains are the life blood of information.

In my research, I could not locate a valid explanation for why some domains had extensions like .TC and others had

Carlton Samuels was recently appoint to the Icann board. Icann governs internet domain extensions: To reach another person on the Internet you have to type an address into your computer - a name or a number.
