    Hello Friends,

    A domain extension is the combination of characters following the period in a web address. Domain extensions are the letters that follow the final period in a URL. For example, in GoDaddy.com, the .com is the domain extension of the GoDaddy domain name. Common extensions include .com, .org, and .net.

    Domain name extensions are the last part of a domain name. For example, in ‘xxxxxxx.com,’ the domain name extension is .com.

    You’ll also see domain name extensions referred to as top-level domains (TLDs). These terms will be used interchangeably throughout the post.

    Your domain name and domain name extension give you a working domain name that your target audience can type into their browsers to access your website.

    Everyone knows .COM, the unrestricted domain extension for companies or commercial enterprises that is the most recognized TLD (top level domain) on the web. Most people in our country also recognize .CA, the ccTLD (country code Top Level Domain Name) that represents Canada.

    But what about all the other domain extensions out there? .ORG, .NET, .MOBI, .TV, .TEL, .BIZ…, in fact there are over 280 different domain extensions delegated globally. What do they all mean and what’s their relative importance to Canadian small businesses? It’s important that a small business understand what its options are for developing and marketing their brand in the online arena.

    According to the latest Domain Name Industry Brief (published by VeriSign), the first quarter of 2010 ended with more than 193 million domain names registered worldwide, an increase of 11 million registrations or 6% from 2009.

    The following are the most popular domain extensions in the world ranked by number of total registrations (1st Quarter 2010) – Source: VeriSign Domain Name Industry Brief

    .COM (“commerce”)
    .DE (Germany)
    .NET (originally “network” but most businesses secure this along with their .com)
    .CN (China)
    .UK (United Kingdom)
    .ORG (originally “organization” but most businesses secure this along with their .com)
    .INFO (originally “information” but most businesses secure this along with their .com)
    .NL (Netherlands)
    .EU (European Union)
    .RU (Russia)

    The best extension is .com. I work for a domain broker who specializes in acquisitions and it feels like every day I speak to someone who needs there company’s .com. They have tried other extensions (usually because it’s cheaper or they just didn’t know they could try to acquire their exact name .com match, even if it it was already taken) and now have realized they are losing out on traffic, having a more difficult time marketing, or they are a startup who has been instructed to obtain their .com with their latest round of funding.) Unfortunately trying to get their .com after they are an established company become more expensive. The advice I always give is to just get your .com in the beginning to save a lot of trouble.

    A space expansion is the mix of characters following the period in a web address. Space expansions are the letters that follow the last time frame in a URL. For instance, in GoDaddy.com, the .com is the area expansion of the GoDaddy space name. Normal expansions incorporate .com, .organization, and .net.
