Shall i go for the .NET or find other name with .COM

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by NoDepositer, Feb 14, 2012.

    I found some domains i like but almost all domains .COM is taken, most of the sites have no content just a website with some links on it.
    Some where you can read "BUY THIS DOMAIN"..

    Shall i go for the .NET domains, are they worth putting money into?

    Or shall i search for other domain names that are available with .COM

    These are membership websites.

    yes it is true many good dot com names have been taken because even without page rank the owner can sell it with higher prices,
    you can say it is a premium names.

    If you are good with SEO, it doesn't matter to take .net or .org
    but if you still doubt and want to start new website, .com is still much better

    I vote .com all the way. Its what people are used to and when you mention a web address its the first extension that comes to peoples minds.

    You can take .net domains.
    Most of people even don't clearly know what the domain name is.

    Go for dot com. You never know when you need to sell off the website. If you manage to build up a very good site, and someone wants to buy it for a lot of money, you can ask for higher selling price if you have dot com instead of dot net site.

    You are absolutely right. For most people, domain names are something that they don't know. All they know is www.google.com and type in what you are looking for. So if the domain name you REALLY want is taken with .COM then you take the .NET.

    Definitely, definitely 100% go with a .com

    You will regret when your site takes off and you are stuck with a .net

    Keep searching and you will soon find one that you can brand your website on.

    It did not depend what you choose either .com or .net both are good. Think how your domain become famous. For example if you will see the alexa ranking ,you will find google.co.in is 14Rank. Where this is not .com , and many more example are there. Well .com and .net are the TLDS where .co.in in third level domain.

    It all depends on what you are trying to do with the domain. If you plan on marketing it where people are going to have to remember it you need to make sure that people can clearly understand it when spoken and can remember it. If you are strictly working on SEO and link building where people will never type it in, then the TLD doesn't matter as much.
