If i look on this page 'autos' is not a top level domain

but if i follow this link of that page autos is in the list:

Question 1: What is the difference between the 2 lists

Question 2: Lets says I wanted to get a domain with the top-level 'technology' how do i find a list of registrars entitled to sell this domain and the different domain sites seem to have different ones available

    Accepted Solution

    The Wiki link is outdated - new TLD's are being added all the time.
    Most registrars can sell all domains, the only restrictions are some country level domains and other restricted domains like .gov
