    that’s not the solution.

    first 3 extensions, why omit .com for .ca? different country ccTLD as to TLD other two.

    .net always been my #2,unfair omit com for .ca

    .net and .org are not easy to sell

    .CA, I believe there are restrictions on this cctld, are you eligible?

    Focus on extensions that are easier to flip

    Yes you are right there are.
    Here are the statement of who can hold a .ca.
    https://www.cira.ca/policy/rules-and-procedures/canadian-presence-requirements-registrants

    I am a bit perplexed by poll. It seems strange to mix one country code, especially a restricted one, with two general availability ones. For Canadians, .ca is often the best choice. There definitely are investment opportunities in .ca, but only for Canadians selling to Canadians.

    Between .net and .org is a tough call. I think it depends on the word. If some sort of network, even in a broad sense, perhaps .net. Org has done well in recent years in volume of sales, and in real use, but both are a tiny part of the aftermarket in .com.

    As Bob says it depends on the keyword, but for me I would prefer org

    I choose .org, some value of .net split by .network, I guess the .web would result the same even if listed while there is .website.

    Could be the OP has a domain in mind which is avail in the 3 extensions but not in the .com version. So the poll is more for his personal decision rather than suited for everyone to take stock from.

    Without knowing the name, it would really be impossible for me to say which or to even vote, each extension has its pros and cons.

    on the other hand there are bunch of new investors stuck outside of .com and thinking about the same idea that to choose other extensions to invest would be a good idea while .com is full loaded.

    Net if not building a non profit org and ca not required. Net also cannot be used if promoting a brand eg audioworld dot net is only going to promote the dot com. Must be generic only.
