    Hey,

    I have a domain, where i own practically every major extension apart from the .com which is unused. I would like your opinion on which extension i should use as the main site extension (to advertise).

    Your choices are:
    SEMrush
    .net
    .org
    .co.uk

    I really appreciate all your help,

    Thanks

    I think you should go for .net but if your site is related to uk then you should go with .co.uk

    I hope this helps you.

    :)

    When .com is not available, .net is you next best bet.

    I voted .net as well even though I'm starting to wonder about the .info and .ws extensions. I know .ws isn't "website" like a bunch say but still seems like it's getting really popular.

    Why not use both?

    .net for worldwide visitors and .co.uk for UK visitors

    In the UK I find .com or .co.uk is fine IMHO UK visitors will use either .com or .co.uk before they use .net but worldwide it would more likely to be .com then .net

    Cheers

    The perfect answer, I second that. If you are in the UK and don't have the .com go with the .co.uk and have the .net as an alias or redirect.
