    I've used .info domains before and they definitely serve a purpose. I've used them for stuff that I don't need to "sell" - i.e. a friend has a baseball site that he posts tournament info on, so the .info is very appropriate. I've also used them as a cheap alternative to a .com when the .com I want is taken, but usually this is on a flip. With the right SEO and marketing, it would not matter the extension.

    I had Gayadesign.nl as my main domain for a very long time. The dot com version was taken. And just when I was into blogging the .com version became available. People click .com faster than .nl outside of the NEtherlands

    Yeah, but you can still get to number 1 in search engines with a .info. Yeah, people might not trust it as much, but I'm sure the vast majority of normal web users will just click the top result.

    Hey hey... isn't that funny? I searched ''.info'' in Google and:

    http://www.google.com/search?rlz=1C1...=UTF-8&q=.info

    The first 3 results aren't .infos! ;p

    Yes, but that's not down to the extension, that's down to the site owners of the first three results being better at SEO.

    do you talk about .info on a .info domain? Nope.

    I'm talking of the first 3 results: they are .com's. It was more of a funny parrallel than anything else.

    what I meant to say was: if you have a website that ends in .info. does it have information about .info? most likely not. I mean, my blog isn't about .com's or .nl's :P
    The results are logical

    I prefer .com but if that isn't available I like to go for .net and if that isn't even available I will go for a .org but usually I like to have all 3 domains empty that way no one can get confused and go to the wrong site.

    Plus, .com is usually assumed when typing a link.
    Steven here, my friends.
