I used to have the old yahoo.com addrees and hotmail.com but you cant get them in the UK now.
.com was originally set up for companies hence .com means company. that was the first public suffix. before that it was all university and military addresses which were either .uni.gov or an IP like 18.104.22.168, etc
.co.uk came a while later for britain and other countrues got their's set up.
all websites work differently. Major website's will set up different suffixes like .co.uk, .nl .whateva to route to .com just for ease and some leave them at the original address.
