Now, more than ever, it’s important to stay connected. In August, we want to help you stay in touch with the rest of the world and learn about different countries using web resources.
CountryCode.org offers a calling chart that will help you find the dialing codes you need to make long-distance phone calls around the globe. The website doesn’t just give you instructions on how to call that country; it also offers you information like area codes, ISO country codes, or what kind of electrical outlets or phone jacks can be found in that part of the world.
Office Holidays offers calendars with information on the public as well as bank holidays in countries around the world. With the increasing globalization, the website can help you stay on top of different holidays when organizing a meeting or planning a trip.
Country Guides gives you free access to cultural information on over 80+ Countries to learn about culture, language, people, food, etiquette, and much more. As experts in cross-cultural communication, we love what we do. Use the guides to plan your next trip or to broaden your horizon, all from the comfort of your home.
The National Geographic Mapping Resources offer tools like MapMaker Interactive, which allows you to explore the world using map themes, or the one-page map generator that can be used to customize maps of continents, countries, or states for use.
Almost every country in the world has a country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) consisting of two letters. If you want to use your domain name to represent a specific country or region, you can register a ccTLD for the country you operate in or want to connect with. (Keep in mind that some are restricted, and you might need a Trustee Service if you can’t provide an address in the specific country.)
