Buying Domains and "Protecting the Brand"

    When you guys buy .com addresses, do you find it necessary to purchase the .net, .info, etc versions too?

    I was thinking about buying the other versions of domains I bought in 2009, and having them directed to the .com whenever they're all developed.

    Is this beneficial in any way? Or just a waste of money?

    It'll cost me like $197 for the .net, .info, and .us for my domains, and that doesn't cover all of them, just a most.

      Where are you registering your domains?

      And if you really want to protect your brand, you're better off (though it is more expensive) trademarking the name.
