You may be wondering if you should get a .com, .net, .info, or .whatever
kind of domain. So many different kinds of domain extensions to choose
from, and so little time. If you are registering a domain name for a for
profit business, you should always register a .com domain. From a brand
perspective, there is no better domain than a .com domain. Most people
associate business domains with the .com extension just like they
associate school domains with the .edu extension.

It may not make any difference in the beginning, but the more successful
you become the more it could hurt you. Let’s say you develop a new
product idea and the .com domain name you want to call it is not
available, so you register the .net domain instead. Sounds harmless
enough. Now, let’s fast-forward a couple of years. You have spent time
and money to develop your brand and people are searching for your product
online with the .com extension simply because they expect you to own the
domain with the .com extension.

Another reason to shy away from other than .com domain names is that
someone may already have copyright protection for the domain name you
want to register. Look further if the .com domain you desire is not
available. Even if you don’t find the exact domain you initially searched
for, you may find one that is better than your original idea.

Whenever the domain you desire is not available through the registrar,
you can try purchasing it from the registered owner. Unfortunately, many
people register domain names to take advantage of others. The common name
for such a person is domain squatter. I only recommend buying domain
names from domain squatters if you have money to burn. The more they know
you want it, the worse your chances of getting a good deal.
In other situations, someone may have good reason to own your desired
domain name. It is unlikely that you’ll be able to bu y the domain name
from a thriving online business. It is possible that you run across a Web
site with the perfect domain name for your business.
