Does a .net vs a .com domain-name-ending diminish the marketability of an e-service based website?
Is one better than the other? If so why and where is the best place to register?
Yes, to some degree. In some people's minds, this makes you a less safe/secure site because .com is often seen as the authority.
Depending on how you market the site (visual vs. audible/word of mouth), it can be a bigger detriment.
This isn't to say a successful .net marketing campaign can't be done but if you can obtain the .com for a reasonable price in the beginning, it's worth it.
Thank you very much iamthegame! Where and how is the best way to get a .com domain name registered in your view?
.com is surely authority tld.
But if you are planning to get traffic through search engines,then it doesn't matter if it is .com or .net both has same visibility.
Both a .net and a .com are valid sites, The difference is that a .net is usually connected with a noncommercial entity and .com is for business purposes.
A company may have a .net if the main focus is to relay infomation rather than sell that information and have instead the person if interested call them.
I have seen .net's marketed just a much as .com's. Are you going to have a custom site and build on a template. The one I'm with is http://web.com - give them a call to see if they handle .net's.
