Considering a Suffix

One additional decision you will need to make concerning your domain name is what suffix to go with. People tend to gravitate toward domain names ending with .com because it is the most recognized suffix around. Most people hear 'dot com' and know what it means and where to go.

Other suffixes available, such as
.org (which is typically used for nonprofit organizations),
.gov (for government websites), and
.net (for network organizations), are not as widely recognized.

You should choose your domain name's suffix based on what suits your taste and budget. Some registration companies promote .biz or other domains with alternate endings as a way to offer the domain you want, at a cheaper price. Reason being .biz or .info domains are not as common and are therefore less desirable.
