What is a generic top-level domain (gTLD)?

It is a TLD with at least 3 characters (e.g. .com) that operates directly under the policies established by ICANN processes for the global Internet community. Some can be used freely, some are reserved for special usage (e.g. .gov) and are called sponsored top-level domains (sTLD). Simply put, a generic TLD is any other than a country top-level domain (ccTLD).
