Is .COM The Best? How Do You Choose A Good TLD ?

If the domain name is a brand (such as a company name), I usually purchase all major top-level domains, such as .com, .net, .org, .info, etc. to protect the brand and prevent other people from using it.

For other websites, I usually register the .com where possible, since that is what most people are used to. In some cases, I might use one of the new top-level domains if it creates something unique that people will remember.

By default everyone always says or thinks "domain.com" because of this to remember or recall information on a website at a later time .com is better in my opinion.  I will say other domain extensions have come a LONG way from early 2000's so maybe my children's generation .com won't be as much of a cornerstone.

I've read tons of articles and Google claims you're domain extension has no effect on your search engine rankings.

In my opinion country code TLD's can improve your search engine visibility on that particular country. You can also obtain names that that are already taken as a .com.

Yeah but seems to then target you only to that country and not worldwide.  I guess if you're topic or service really is that niche it could make sense.

I would choose .com or .net. It seems like it is the most common TLD right now. Although it's hard to use common names for your websites because it's most likely taken already. I also like these TLDs because I sometimes forgot the whole URL of a website that I'm supposed to visit and I mistakenly type .com but it isn't.
