5. Choose an appropriate domain name extension
Domain name extensions are the suffixes at the end of your website address such as .com, .org or .net. Each of these extensions have their own specific use, so you should make sure you choose the one that suits your business. .com is the most common domain extension while some other extensions are used for different types of websites. .co is used for a company or community website; .info is used for information sites; .org is used for non-profits and non-commercial organizations; .me is used for resume, blogs or personal sites; and .net is used for technical sites. However, there has bee a lot of speculating that the new extensions, like .shop or .legal etc etc will diversify the domain market! In our opinion this has not been the case and as a matter of fact the .com domains are now more popular than ever!
