.ad is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Andorra. It is administered by Servei de Telecomunicacions d'Andorra, also known as Andorra Telecom.

Because .ad is also an abbreviation for the word advertisement or advert, .ad has also been used in an unconventional manner as a domain hack by some advertising media, as well as in the year usage 20XX.ad.
