Google Maps TLDs

Google Maps

Google owns a variety of  top-level domains (TLDs) besides the American-centric Google.com.   For example, the Bahamas uses www.google.bs as the official domain name.

With Store Locator Plus a setting is provided to allow the site administrator to set the starting TLD for the Google map.  While any address in the world can be searched from any of the TLDs, as far as I know anyway, selecting the Google TLD determines where the map centers and how map information is rendered.    Sadly, Google has made it very difficult to find their latest list of support TLDs even when using the Google search engine.   Thus, I have compiled a list of the TLDs I am aware of and that are accessible inside of  Store Locator Plus v3.11.19:

  • Argentina      maps.google.com.ar
