Domain Name Country Quiz!

Hiya.

Here's another quiz for you.

I'll give you the domain name extension (e.g. .com, .net, .org) and you tell me what country it's for.

No cheating!

01) .sg
02) .br
03) .uk
04) .dk
05) .cn
06) .fr
07) .yu
08) .sa
09) .es
10) .gr
11) .jp
12) .us
13) .nl
14) .in
15) .de
16) .cz
17) .cu
18) .iq
19) .pk
20) .ca


UPDATE:

Oops. #9 was marked as .sp (a domain that doesn't exist). I have changed it to what I had intended -- .es

All the other questions are correct.


SECOND UPDATE:

Here are the answers:

01) .sg (Singapore)
02) .br (Brazil)
03) .uk (United Kingdom)
04) .dk (Denmark)
05) .cn (China)
06) .fr (France)
07) .yu (Yugoslavia)
08) .sa (Saudi Arabia)
09) .es (Spain)
10) .gr (Greece)
11) .jp (Japan)
12) .us (United States)
13) .nl (Netherlands)
14) .in (India)
15) .de (Germany)
16) .cz (Czech Republic)
17) .cu (Cuba)
18) .iq (Iraq)
19) .pk (Pakistan)
20) .ca (Canada)


I believe Matty Boy did the best with this quiz, missing only #1 and #8. His stellar performance doesn't surprise me, as I am aware of his intense Flags Of Many Lands™ obsession. Congrats to Matty Boy!

I am going to make a point of visiting some websites having these domain name extensions this week.

I know that I've definitely been to some UK, Canadian, even German sites relatively recently, but I don't believe I have accessed a domain in a majority of these countries. Won't you please join me, and let me know if you find anything nifty?

I've been getting emails lately telling me to register my company in these countries, otherwise have someone else take the domain names using my company's name. It's expensive to do multiple registrations. But it could be expensive not to as well.
