To discuss the TLD that is suitable for your websites, let’s have a good understanding of the most common domain extensions.
.COM – The most general and popular TLD designed for commercial use and any individual or organization on the Internet.
.Biz – Just like the extension suggests, this TLD is designed for businesses. Many companies would choose a .Biz domain if their preferred .COM domain name has been taken.
.ORG – .ORG domains are for those who need to establish credibility within the community and make a positive impact on the world. It is most commonly used for non-profit organizations looking to establish credibility with their community.
.NET – It was intended to be used as a tool for maintaining network infrastructure. This TLD is recommended for businesses that deal with the Internet, email, and networking service providers such as Hostpro2u.
.MOBI – Mostly for companies or organizations that have a mobile-only version for their website, especially when targeting audiences who mostly use mobile devices.
.MY (or other ccTLDs) – Most website visitors are more likely/prefer to visit websites that have the ccTLD that matches with their home country. While registration might be restricted and reserved for companies/organizations that are located in the same country.
