The Best TLD Names

Updated on April 25, 2011

What's better?

I'm sure by now, that everyone is aware that .Com has definitely trumped just about any other kind of extension out there. Though even with that in mind, there are still many extensions that are starting to give .com's a run for their money. Not to mention, .com stands for "commercial", which may not specifically suit the needs of you business or website.

.Net  Definitely one of the most used next to .Com. It stands for "network" and is easily used by anyone who couldn't get their .com domain name.

.Org  If your business is more of an organization, or really is an organization, then there is no reason that you couldn't use a .org. On top of that, you could easily register just about any blog under a .org domain.

.Tv  This is another rival to .com's. Especially since it very easily covers any sort of media related site. If you have a tube site, or you want to produce video's, you can use this extension. Many people are already using .Tv's as their extension for new online shows they have created.

.Biz   Definitely a succulent choice for anyone looking to own their own Business Website.

.Info  a .Info domain can be registered by anyone, and they have become very popular lately, with .com's being used up. .Info definitely isn't the highest in the ranks, but it certainly is useful when you need it!

.Ws   This is one of my favorites, as the Ws stands for "website". It's a simple, versatile and easy to use extension that can go with anything you want the world to see.

.Us  Another rising star in the extension dimension, is .Us. It has the most unused names and is usually one of the cheapest domain extensions to get. So if your in America, why not try out a .Us and save yourself some money. It's just as good as .Com and is easy to remember.

    Well, they are known as Top Level Domains, or TLDs. They are not extensions, as in a Windows file type. You might want to change the wording a bit. ;)
