Choosing a TLD Extension

Often people get confused about what domain extension to choose for their domain names.
People have mixed opinion about different domain name extensions, hopefully this explanation might help you decide what TLD (Top Level Domain) is right for you.

1.Always give first preference to .com:
I would say it’s a good idea to give first preference to .com domain names as people find it easy to remember also people often assume a site’s name always end with .com over other extensions.
So if you get a chance to get hold of a good .com domain then don’t miss the chance and grab it as soon as possible.

2 .org Is The Second Best Option You Can Go For:
It’s often assumed that .org domain names are only used for company websites. Though it holds true to some extent we have came to a point where you can see .org sites are widely spread among websites of almost all possible niches online. Also stats show that more number of domain names are registered under .org after .com.
If you happen to see a good domain name with .org extension as available just don’t hesitate to go for it. Also .org extension is widely becoming popular for techno based sites. So if you have an idea to start a techno site then .org might well be a good choice for you.

3 .net Gets The Third Place:
Getting a .net domain name can be third best option for you to go for as it’s holds the third place for the most registered domain name extension across the globe. Similar to .org extension, I don’t practically see any restrictions for the kind of site you can have with your .net extension.

4 .co.uk & .uk  Are the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United Kingdom.
As of March 2012, it is the fourth most popular top-level domain worldwide (after .com, .de and .net), with over 10 million registrations. This is always a great option for british businesses and is well recognised world wide.
If your business or website deals mainly with uk residents then i'd take a serious look at these options.

5. Domain Name With Good Keyword Should Always Be Your First Preference:
Its often the case that many webmasters tend to leave of a good domain name when .com extension is not available, but this should not be the case in my opinion especially when you consider the way search engines look at your domain names, search engines not give special preference to .com or .org or whatever extension it your site might hold what really matters is the content of your site.
So if you happen to come across a domain name with .org or .net extension available I would advice you to go for it, rather than settling with a domain name with a less popular keyword in .com extension.
The one aspect i'd also like to mention is if you are in business then getting hold of all the TLD's for your chosen name is the best option, buying all the top extensions ensures no one can try to copy or take advantage of your hard work. This is a good option at this time with TLD names becoming cheaper per year.
