.cd is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was created in 1997 as a replacement for the .zr (Zaire) ccTLD, which was phased out and eventually deleted in 2001.

Except for reserved names like .com.cd, .net.cd, .org.cd and others, any person in the world can register a .cd domain for a fee, much of the income from which goes to the government and people of the country. The ccTLD is popular (and thus economically valuable) due to it being an abbreviation for compact disc (other similar ccTLDs are .fm, .am, .tv, .ws and .dj).
