I want to know, how many tlds are currently owned by Stack Overflow? As I know there is only stackoverflow.com. Are there any other tlds owned by Stack Overflow?

The technical answer is none, since stackoverflow.com is not a TLD (.com is). –  Tim Stone Jan 17 '13 at 18:40
@TimStone Heh, you just beat me to it ... –  EnergyNumbers Jan 17 '13 at 18:41
Surely, it ownes .se? –  Oded Jan 17 '13 at 18:45
I believe se is for Sweden –  Aaron Kurtzhals Jan 17 '13 at 18:45
@AaronKurtzhals - Never heard of it. –  Oded Jan 17 '13 at 18:47
@Oded I've been trying to tell people about .sx.... –  Pops Jan 17 '13 at 21:34
@PopularDemand In Italian, that would be a short for left, in the same way dx is a short for right. ;) –  kiamlaluno Jan 17 '13 at 21:52

stackoverflow.com is owned by Stack Exchange, not by "stackoverflow".

It also owns:

  • answerama.com
  • apptivate.ms
  • arqade.com
  • askdifferent.com
  • askpatents.com
  • askubuntu.com
  • basicallymoney.com
  • blogoverflow.com
  • chiphacker.com
  • crossvalidated.com
  • hatdash.com
  • me3missions.com
  • nothingtoinstall.com
  • s.tk
  • seasonedadvice.com
  • skyrimvsmw3.com
  • serverfault.com
  • sstatic.net
  • stackapps.com
  • stackauth.com
  • stackexchange.com
  • superuser.com
  • winterba.sh

And probably some more.

Stack Exchange don't own any TLDs.

stackoverflow.com is a domain. It's not a TLD; a TLD is a Top-Level Domain, such as .com and .uk

Of the Stack Exchange domains, there is at least these:

AndroidFoodFight.com , AnswerAma.com , AppTivate.ms , arqade.com , askdifferent.com , AskPatents.com , AskSigAct.org , AskTheTable.com , askubuntu.com , basicallymoney.com , blogoverflow.com , chiphacker.com , crossvalidated.com , CsTheory.org , CycleQuery.com , Diablo3Acts.com , ElectionCheck.com , ExpertUi.com , GameCouncil.com , GameCounsel.com , GetsThingsDone.net , hatdash.com , HatFight.com , IAskChicago.com , IAskNyc.com , IdleCoder.com , LieHound.com , MiniProfiler.com , MiyOdEya.com , MountainLionChallenge.com , nothingtoinstall.com , RockStarHire.com , s.tk , seasonedadvice.com , serverfault.com , SexualityQa.com , SharePointOverflow.com , sstatic.net , stackapps.com , StackAthlon.com , stackauth.com , StackerNews.com , StackEx.com , stackexchange.com , StackOfdice.com , stackoverflow.com , stackshowdown.com , superuser.com , TheArQaDe.com , TheGameCouncil.com , TheNewIpadIsHere.com , TheNewNewNewIpad.com , TruthCatcher.com , Win8Challenge.com , YoDeyA.com

How has the domain s.tk been registered? I thought the minimum length of a domain name (minus TLD) was two characters. Also, a whois search for s.tk returns me "Invalid output" –  caiosm1005 Jan 17 '13 at 19:10
@caiosm1005 - That's up to each TLD's manager. x.com is valid, for instance, but no new one-letter .coms are being created. –  Bobson Jan 17 '13 at 19:21
Surely Oded doesn't need the reputation, but this still bothers me. Why repeating an earlier answer? –  Arjan Jan 17 '13 at 19:23
@Arjan I guess the aim here on meta, as elsewhere on StackExchange, is to create a single, best, definitive answer, which can then be accepted; and that can mean merging bits from other answers too. I think I've understood that right, but please correct me if I'm wrong –  EnergyNumbers Jan 17 '13 at 19:34
Sure, that's the aim. But there are things like attribution. You saw my answer and thought to use it - fine. Could have added something about that fact. –  Oded Jan 17 '13 at 20:50
Like @Oded, I disagree here, but even think attribution was not good enough here. Changing a useless answer (your first revision was useless, I feel) into a good answer by copying someone else's answer (which also was older) smells VERY bad to me. You should just have deleted your answer, I feel. –  Arjan Jan 17 '13 at 21:07
