Selecting a Domain Name Suffix

Ever wonder why some people and organizations choose to use the domain suffix of .com, .info or .org? Want to get a quick definition of what each of the domain suffixes is meant to mean?

Below is a list of some of the most popular American domain suffixes along with a brief description of each. Selecting a domain suffix is really up to you, it is the quality of information on your site that will really dictate your website traffic.

.com - The most popular domain name
.co - Global, credible and recognizable
.info - Put you information on the web
.net - The perfect complement to a .com
.org - Perfect for your non-profit
.me - A domain that's all about you
.mobi - Give customers on-the-go access to your site
.us - Get your hands on the all-American domain
.biz - A domain that means business
.tv - A popular domain for multimedia websites

One quick note of interest, some of the not so popular domain suffixes are owned by different countries, which means they can shut them down at anytime if they so choose. My recommendation is that you stick with the most popular suffix domains as best as you can, you may not get the exact name that you try and register, but your site will always be safe in the long run.

If you are looking for a great place to see what domain names are available, try using GoDaddy, as this is the premier leader in domain name registration.
