    Info domain name extensions are not really popular and that's why they are not used and that's why sometimes they apper with very cheap registration prices.

    Because of their cost and its purpose itself (information) its frowned upon for any professional or commercial website (other than for branding). For blogs or just information sites they're pretty much okay.

    Personally though I rarely register .info domains as it is a little hard to sell them off if you wish to clear your domain inventory.

    .info is good for testing purpose for specific niche because you're going to pay very low price during the first year.

    depends on how your using the .info name but in most situations a .com with a similar name will usually get more traffic because people are so used to putting the .com at the end of everything.

    Well you could use it firstly, if the .com and .nets are already registered, and secondly, if you're short on cash and need to open a website with the minimum amount of investment. I have a few sites using the .info extension, and it gets just as many visitors as a .com would. I don't think it makes that much of a difference.

    if the equivalent dot com is available, don't let it go. you may end in running a successful .info without the .com counterpart :)

    So if the .com address is unavailable I shouldn't buy the .info?

    If you're only after type-in traffic as implied above, yes. But that's only part of the story, you can rank high in search results with any extension. On the other hand, a .com doesn't cost an arm and a length compared to .info.

    Godaddy currently has .info for $0,89, and if you reg 6 or more, you get each for only $0,79.
    I dont prefer .info, but if you own for example london.info, barcelona.info, newyork.info you could be able to get rich on them, but for some 2-3 word .info domain you will very hard receive some high $xxx offer, or higher.
