    When someone buys such a domain name like Canadian.com or Israeli.com or something of this sort, instead of Canada.com, Israel.com, France.com etc. what would someone build on such a name? With the latter, you could build anything around Tourism, cities, countries, currency exchange etc. But what with the former?

    I can imagine something like a country-specific social media site. What else would someone build on such a domain name not as the government but as a private company?
    I always fail to appreciate what, as a business, could be appropriate for such names?

    Nationalist is the word you are looking for.

    They may be of political value.

    EDIT: or may be politically benign. It's ambiguous.

    Same for Spanish - available for rent/lease

    Which would be perfect for a language site, same for Portuguese, Russian, German, French, Japanese (not checked these)

    ...and I've recently begun using the word Canadia in place of Canada. It started as a joke and I've now confused myself :unsure:

    Canadian encompasses so much, looking forward to its development if/when they do. It could be a cultural focused site. It better include one of our biggest contributions to the finer side of enjoying gravy:

    A site that teaches how to speak Canadian Eh? Like analyse and not analyze, centre and not center. I hate these American spell checkers. I'm sorry.

    I'm Canadian and this is a crappy name for a website. In Canada, most businesses use .ca extension.

    This is pretty useless.

    For a local audience, I agree.

    But if you targetting an international audience, I think the com reaches more people.
