About the .COM Domain

When you think of the Internet, you think of the .COM domain. .COM is recognized around the world - it crosses every border, understands every language, and appreciates every culture. If you are doing any kind of business or personal website, registering your .COM domain name is definitely the place to start. For personal websites, .COM domains are the easiest to share and remember. For businesses, a .COM domain gives your website instant credibility, which is especially important if you have an e-commerce website.

.COM was one of the first generic top-level domains (gTLDs) established in 1985. It gets its name from the word commercial as .COM registration was originally intended for commercial organizations. Today, however, .COM registration is open to everyone and the .COM domain has grown to be the most popular domain in the world. As of 2012, it boasts over 100 million registrations.

Protect Your Brand with a .COM Domain

Once you've found your perfect .COM domain, you can also register common misspellings to redirect traffic back to your main website. We also recommend registering your .COM domain name with additional gTLDs such as .NET and .ORG as well as any country code domains (ccTLDs) that make sense for your website. This will help protect your brand and if you don't want to create a new website, you can easily redirect traffic from your additional TLDs back to your main .COM domain with our free domain forwarding.

Is your main website already established on another top-level domain? If the .COM domain is available, we recommend registering it. Many people still automatically type in .COM at the end of a web address and once you have your .COM registered, you can simply redirect any traffic that goes to it back to your main website. If you don't register it, someone else will and it is much more difficult and expensive to get a .COM domain once it is already owned.
