1. .Com = Company
2. .Org = Organisation
3. . Net = Network
4. .Info = Information
5. .Co.uk = Uk Country Domain
6. Mobi = Moblie site
7. .Gov = Government (non purchasable )
8. .Edu = Education (non purchasable )
As a rule of thumb the only do
main worth using are .com, .org then .net in that order BUT this is not always the case as country domains get preferential treatment when it comes to local search.
If you live in the UK and you are looking for a local builder the search results will always show more website domains ending in .co.uk then any other domain extension i.e. .com .org etc.
Final Word On Domain Name Extentions
This brings me to my next tip, if you only want to target people from the UK for example, it would be best to get a .co.uk than a .com But if you are targeting a worldwide market it would be more beneficial to purchase a .com, .org or maybe a .Net domain extension.
