About .com domains

The .com extension is the most well-known domain name. Since it was one of the first ever top-level domain names, it is also the most used and recognisable one. Since 1985, the .com domain has been mainly used for businesses. Today, it is used for both commercial and non-commercial uses. When it was created, the .com extension was managed by the US Department of Defence. Now, its management has been handed over to Verisign and it is governed by American jurisdiction.

Why choose a .com domain name

The .com extension is the gold standard. If you want to reach the widest possible audience for your organisation's website or your business, buying a .com domain is the way to go. Internet users have become accustomed to using the .com domain by default. By using the .com extension, you will make it easier for visitors to remember your website name. Even if you prefer to use another extension for your web presence, reserving the equivalent .com domain is a good practice to ensure that your visitors do reach your site. This ensures that you don't miss out on visits or potential sales. Registering a .com domain will bring you optimal credibility and visibility in reaching a large non-specific audience.
