    I live in Switzerland and I have noticed that companies and banks are slowly moving to .com variant of their site.
    Official languages in Switzerland are: German, French, Italian and Romantsch.
    So often I see now .com instead of .ch in url, they just use .ch for email addresses. But slowy .ch is going out for email too, because they now register the .swiss domain for [email protected] etc.

    My prediction in 5 years max, they will start to use just .com as official and .swiss for email address. It all goes in that direction.

    Guys from https://www.myswitzerland.com/ (official swiss tourist site) bought from me domain Svicarska.com
    It means Switzerland on Bosnian, Croatian and Serbian lang.

    Also major hosts are switching their nameservers to .com domain variants.

    Well .com is one of the most popular ones, so not really surprised.

    That is a cool site. I like how you can pan around just a little with the video on the home page thru the different months. Looks like a cool place to live.

    I have a 5 letter tourist town in .com that for some reason shot up today, have no idea why.

    I've got some 'sideways' family roots from that area...my cousin is named Geneva for the city. Of all the countries on the planet I have always wanted to go there more than others (Roman and Greek ruins are also desired destinations). All the important women throughout my life have been blue eyed and blonde with German and/or Swedish heritage...I may not be able to survive if I went there!

    Nice, now you have some good ones, take your time to source buyers for them. Don't rush and jump at the first offer you get. Good luck
