What does GL mean?
- .gl is the country code top-level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet for Greenland. The domain is available for Internet services world-wide and registrations are handled by ICANN accredited domain name registrars. The domain name has sometimes been marketed as a symbol standing for "good luck", "graphics library", Galicia or the Galician language, or Gloucestershire. In December 2009, Google released a URL shortener service using the domain hack goo.gl. In April 2013, transiently inconveniencing some File Sharing internet users, the registrar unilaterally voluntarily suspended resolution of thepiratebay.gl, intended to be a new primary Domain Name for famous Bittorrent search engine The Pirate Bay.
