    The next best extension to .COM.

    Which one you prefer.

    What will be the percentage of sales price of category killer names in these

    extensions compared to .COM

    It depends upon the domain name, if it is Not profit organization they prefer .org.

    And if there is a startup company they prefer .co

    .co looks confusingly similar to .com. .com has received a lot of marketing and I'm not sure .co could pass the radio test.

    There is even a thread on this very forum about .co emails being misdelivered (or should I say, misaddressed) to .com.

    "Net" for network; Cant spell "Internet" w/o "net"

    .Net introduced January 1, 1985

    True Original. Stats suggest .net down, but long live net as #2 (@jmcc )

    I thought startups prefer ".IO"?

    Obviously not one of the choices, and far from #2, i disagree

    Startups prefer .com

    I prefer .org if it makes contextual sense for the domain name, otherwise .net. Using a .co would probably result in a lot of traffic and email leakage to the .com equivalent.

    In terms of recognition, .NET (by volume) or .ORG (by reputation) but both of them have recognition where .CO is often seen as a typo for .COM.

    depending on the name
    org is good for geo names and non profit or crypto etc
    co is a short version of company
    net is for a tech startup.

    .NET in general. If it fits the extension well then .ORG.

    .NET is usually a second choice, where .ORG can be the first choice for some terms when it comes to end users.

    1) com
    2) net
    3) co
    4) org

    There's no next .com.

    Having said that, I definitely prefer .org simply because it's the only extension on that list that stands tall in its own right.

    With .net, .co etc, I see them and assume the business branded on those because they couldn't get the .com. While .org brands look deliberate.

    .net but .org too depends on the niche .
    while some prefer .co or .io

    It all depends on the usage of the TLD.
    If its a company/brand/ecommerce, then .CO will do (and too if it's a single word)
    If its a gaming site, forum, informative site then grab a .NET
    .ORG is only good for non-profit or organization-type sites or businesses who want give more information about their CSR (corporate social responsibility) activities, etc.

    net and org are generic top-level domain extensions. Whereas .co is a ccTLD like any other ccTLDs such as .com.au, .co.uk, .io, and so on.

    But, .co and .io over the last couple of years found new meaning with startups and existing businesses.

    Now, they are not regarded as ccTLDs (in practical terms - though theoretically they are still ccTLDs)
    .co means, company as well as commercial. So, it's good for businesses small to moderate size who can't afford dot com. Or their dot com is already in use by a business.

    Once, Andrew Rosener said in a doaminsherpa show that .co would have been successful like .com had it been released in line with dot com during those initial days of the internet.

    There is(and will be) nothing next to .COM since only one default extension could exist, that is, .COM

    I think .Net was probably 'the first dot com'.

    There were six TLDs to begin with, of which three were available to the public from 1985, being .com for commercial use, .net for networking, and .org for non-commercial use. The other three - .mil, .gov and .edu - were and still are restricted.

    Because the world wide web had not been invented in 1985, most computer companies used .Net to network computers, so of the three publicly available spaces, this extension would most likely have been the most popular.

    I imagine that most people in 1985 would have been asking what can we do with a dot com?

    My school (not in the US) had a couple of networked computers when I was in my final year, and I'm pretty sure they were running on the .net space


    Anyway, my first pick after a .COM would be .NET

    .NET / Of course!

    .ORG / For no profits, med, law, education and few other niches.

    .CO / Is the cctld of Colombia, this should say enough.
