Most domain extension lists i've found only list the ccTLD and TLD portion of the extension (e.g. .uk) and don't list the full set of valid extensions for that ccTLD or TLD (e.g. .org.uk, .ac.uk, .co.uk, etc).

Without researching the registrar policies of every single ccTLD in the world, is there a way for me to compile/obtain a complete list of all current valid domain extensions in the world?

I found what I was looking for at The Public Suffix List.

+1 - I was going to link to this, if only I'd seen your question earlier – Mark Henderson Dec 6 '10 at 1:47

List of TLDs (human-friendly version)

Thanks, but you missed the crucial part of my question. I don't need just the .uk or .au bits, I need the .com.au, .co.uk, .org.nz and so forth, than many ccTLDs use. – Nathan Ridley Dec 5 '10 at 22:31
