.COM domain name .COM domain name - Generic

The .COM domain extension is the oldest and most popular. The end of 2017 saw nearly 332+ million domain name registrations globally, with .COM domain names representing 146+ million of those registrations. With these kinds of numbers, there’s no question that .COM remains the most widely used extension on the market. 

Everyone knows .COM, even if they can’t recall what it originally stood for. The  late 90s gave rise to the “dot-com” era, with more people getting the Internet at home, and more e-commerce and brick-and-mortar businesses setting up shop on the Internet. A .COM domain name, originally intended for commercial organisations, became with time the default choice, it’s designation as a strictly “commercial” online space long since forgotten. These days, it’s just three letters at the end of most domain names. 

The .COM domain extension is instantly recognised which has led to many non-commercial websites adopting it. .COM domain registration is open to all so whether you’re looking to get your business online or start your own blog, a .COM domain name is a good place to start. A number of countries have even launched their own second level domains under their country code domain which serve the same function as .COM: Australia .COM.AU; Greece .COM.GR; and the United Kingdom .CO.UK

In recent years, the arrival of many other generic top-level domains like .BIZ ("business") have attempted to dethrone .COM. But as popular as those other choices are, .COM’s strength is unwavering. Its memorability, recognisability, and lasting influence have provided it with a rich history and reputation that has helped it to remain the king of domains!
