I just wanna ask a question. What domain extension do you prefer to register instead of .com?
I would choose .net
I would not go for .org or .info unless my sites are either about "Organization" or about "information".
Exactly, If .com is not available for my desired domain name I will go with .net
.asia.com is also a nice domain name extension and eurodns offers it on nice conditions at low prices.
What do you think for example of .ws offered by Global Domains International?
I like the .ws and other these kind of extensions only if they are used wisely, like this
Do you see how wisely they used the .ws extension with a word "news"
Now no one can forget the site name.
That is a nice one, indeed. Interesting combination... I will keep that in mind and make use of it in another context and combination...
My next preference to .com is .in
Its short, and cheap from name.com for $3.99 now, and i am from india.
I prefer to use .com only but if not then i will go for .net ..
Another domain extensions that impress me are .co.uk and .mz
For me, the order of preference is:
Btw Jani, nice combination but I must admit I didn't see it from the beginning, and after I saw the explanation for ne.ws I said to myself: of course, damn!
Like Jani says, I agree: Whenever you have the chance you should make interesting combos or someone else my get to that domain and buy it.
I have been getting a few names here lately. Need to try to keep up with the rest of you. LOL
I have got .com .info .me Now
The only option I would choose right now is .net
.info is definitely out because from what I hear, the low price of registering means that spammers are always taking advantage to register cheap names.. leading to google downgrading of the tld.
thank you !!!
i keep saying this about the .info and people are saying no no it is equal with the other extensions!!
I would use .net or .org, but for my blog I use .ch because it fits in with the name...BlogTech, think you can work out what I mean
But yeah, for general purpose, if I couldn't use a .com would be a .net or .org.
.net, already use it for one of my sites because the .com wasn't available, but i like .net as well.
I have sites in the .org, .info and .net extensions.
I typically only go for .com, .net or .org (in that order). Some of the others sound a little sketchy to some people; I want .ie, though because my name is Brie. I could maybe have iambr.ie or something if I establish some connection with Ireland. lol.
I have been using .info for proxy sites. If I had more important sites where the .com wasn't available I would use .net. I haven't used .us yet but I might.
Lately I've been registering a lot of .in domains
Yes, it's interesting combination.
BTW, it's called "domain hacks". There's a lot of services (for example domaintyper.com), that can help you make up hack for your domain.
Separate names with a comma.
