Hi web masters,
Could you give me any comparisons what is the difference between .com, .net, .org, .biz and.info domain names?
and what is the value/profit on each extension can bring to us?

.com - Commercial
.net - Network
.biz - Business
.org - Organization
.info - Information

The most valuable domain extension is .com in general.

.COM is the legacy domain extension, ofcourse other domains have value. But, .com should be your first choice if your not targeting locally.

I suggest to always go for .com if your not looking for local domain extension, if the .com does not exist, then you can consider the other extensions.

People (at least in the US) are more familiar with the .com domain extension. The .com extension is what most people would enter by default when typing a domain name, so if you have a domain name with an extension other than '.com', you'll have some visitors that would go to the '.com' version by mistake. Most businesses also use the .com extension.

They are domain names, and are recognizes as such exactly the same. They are an extension of the name you choose as an accessible one online. No one has added benefits over the other. It all comes down to choice, the industry you are involved with, etc as to what extension you choose to represent your website. Lots of people will utilize multiple extensions for the same domain, to protect the integrity of their business.

.COM is used for commercial businesses.
.NET for network related groups.
.ORG for nonprofit organizations.
.BIZ Domain is good for businesses.
.INFO is synonymous with information.

Keep in mind that there is nearly a thousand (if not more) domain extensions currently. There is an extension for just about every type of website or industry, and there are more launching every month. Hell, you could launch your own TLD if you had enough money!

.Com was the original extension which will give it a higher value than others. I would imagine more people are affiliated with .Com when typing an extension in, its almost a reaction due to the history of it.

Other extensions are now just emerging and are gaining value. It may be another 20 years until we finally have equal value if not, close value.

I like .com the best. However, You can buy .com or .biz if you are a business company.
