Hi, i was wondering today when I was in IT and we were talking about web hosting and suffix's. Well I wasnt sure if suffix's for example .au HAD to be hosted in Australia or could I rent it from London.

Basically, does a suffix signify where it is actually hosted EG. fr = france

No, they don't have to be hosted in the country the are registered in. But to have a country specific domain, you usually have to reside in that country. (Ex. to have a .ca domain, you need to live in Canada).

that's true but some countries domain registration force the company to be located in the same country. e.g for gov, edu, etc
