But remember that your personal or corporate domains do not mandatorily have to end with .com, where choices are restricted. Actually, there is a practically limitless range of domain name extensions to choose from, among them .MOBI – for mobile websites, .TV – for multimedia websites, .NAME and .ME – for personal sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – regarded as .COM substitutes, and almost any country-specific top-level domain name that comes to your mind. A UK-based web site might enjoy higher popularity if it employs a .CO.UK Top-Level Domain. However, if your business is in Canada or the United States of America, .CA or .US might be a more suitable option.
