    I will just share my opinion on .online with business name. I think it also depends on a business name, lets say you specifically provide some services online, then it may suite. However it is a lengthy extension, and should be chosen carefully.

    I do think if .COM is not available than you can consider going for .Online/.Website/.XYZ because I feel these extensions are generic.

    For further informaion, you can use following .ONLINE thread where members discussed in detail.

    A lot of quality .BIZ-domains are available on aftermarket from low $xxx...
    So I don't understand why to buy such exotic and long variants...

    I don't think .online should be the second best choice if .com is taken. More like the hundredth. You have plenty of alternatives in between. I am not familiar with any .online site, so I see no particular reason to buy one.

    I am literally closing my old business because the .com isn't for sale and moving everything over to my other business because I own the exact match domain.

    Just sayin'

    In my opinion, .online is one of your best options. Personally, I feel that .online is one of the best, if not the best, new gTLD for actual web development.

    This is evidenced by the following:
    Indexed pages using .club: 107 million
    Indexed pages using .io: approximately 58 million
    Indexed pages using .online: approximately 7.5 million
    Indexed pages using .one: approximately 6.8 million
    Indexed pages using .xyz: approximately 6.2 million
    Indexed pages using .top: approximately 3.5 million
    Indexed pages using.tech: approximately 2.7 million
    Indexed pages using .cloud: approximately 361K

    .co, .biz, and .net are much more established and have far more active sites.

    Don't be afraid to use .online. It is a great option!

    My business named Digital Reach, so I registered Digitalreach.consulting at first thought , then I thought Digitalreach.xyz is cooler, sure .com is better, but .xyz looks cool for tech related companies I think... but I have not tested it yet, it is not active...

    What would those 99 better extensions be? Say you've got an auto body shop called Jack's Car Repair (and you want your name/brand to remain intact in the domain, i.e. don't want to add filler words)...

    jackscarrepair.com - perfect

    jackcarrepair.ie - perfect provided that your shop is In Ireland

    jackscarrepair.net - not bad

    jackscar.repair - hell, why not, cute... (not possible with A LOT of keywords)

    What after this?

    .co - possible but not that great

    .io - sucks for this purpose

    .org - at least not ideal

    .info - at least not ideal

    .biz - why not...

    .xyz - come again?

    .club, .agency, .villas, .design, .management etc. = NOPE.

    .ONLINE...

    jackscarrepair.online - works IMO.

    ---

    Personally I like .online quite much. Not saying it's a great extension to invest in but would have no problems using it in a project.
