    I have to agree with everybody that suggested you the .com domain over the .us

    Regardless if your target market is mainly the people from the United States. You have to know that .com is the most popular domain extension and it won't change anytime soon. If somebody forgets the website's URL, they will always use the most common ones and therefore .com will come in much faster than .us

    I personally don't even know of any ''big'' or ''successful'' website that would only be using .us domain extension.

    But, if you have the resources available to you, and you can't decide then why not buy both? Get the .com and .us and redirect the .us traffic to the .com one. It's easy and it could be good

    This is not possible and we will discuss it when that can happen with domain names. for your example, in all cases, everyone will always remember that domain name should go with .com when they might forget its domain extension.

    It's different. It depends on the purpose and the type of website.

    Any domain names, if you plan to register, always go for .com as its a more universal and widely use worldwide.

    Even if you plan to do business in US only, a .com will always have more appealing factor and later on when you plan to resell, the .com domain name will fetch a better price compare to other extension.

    Another possible domain extension you can consider is .co ( not too bad but afraid people may accidentally keyed in .com instead of .co


    Bear in mind, the .com domain names are very saturated unless you come across a very unique name so that you can still get it.


    All the best, mate.

    .com is the most common domain in the world. So it is better to go for .com, although most .com domains are already occupied so you might as well go for the .us domain.
