    .com is definitely better but check how it will sound with your domain. Recently I had the same issue and normally I would choose .com but it did sound strange. With .in it was perfect, easy to remember, sounds good and looks nice

    If your website is targeted to India then .in TLD can be good.

    If not, I would go with .com for sure.

    I use .co.uk domains for all my UK based websites. I use .com domains when the website has a global audience and not just targeting a specific country.

    just go .com, you can look into all of the SEO stuff until you are blue in the face. at the end of the day users see .com as 'normal' and anything different they second guess

    Whether the site is for everyone or just a country, if you find a .com name you like, register it, .com comes first. For a quality domain the basic rule is without numbers and without hypens in the name of the domain.

    Hi Rikon,
    I don't understand why the best extant ion for a domain would depend on the domain name.
    Thank you for explaining!

    .com as an international domain is more credible.

    You may find it's easier to get the perfect name for a less popular domain extension and short is better than a longer, harder to remember domain name..

    Get both. Decide which one is the main one as suggested by some of the earlier posts. Even if you don't plan to do a forward from one of the domains, by registering you don't anyone else to take it and have the same domain name but with different extensions. I work from Canada, so for my clients I try to register always ".com" and ".ca" and if possible and relevant ".net" as well.
