Oh, wait, I'm missing something. How can .co.cc be a single domain when .cc is a country? Wouldn't that be like saying everything in .co.uk is the same domain?
Some countries allow you to register domains immediately under the country code. You cannot register example.uk*, but you can register example.ly or example.im or example.lk. You usually pay a premium for two letter domains (i.e. to get xx.xx)
*parliament.uk is an apparent exception, but a whois says it is a TLD, so the actual domain is www.parliament.uk - which is presumably why they cannot redirect parliament.uk to www.parliament.uk.
