    .com is always better than .net

    For news website, I think, it will be better to use .net, because .com stands for "commerce".

    .com is best in comparison then .net because .com domain get easily indexed by the search engines in case of SEO, .com domain names are more preferable. If you want to register your domain then go for godaddy, they are providing their services at affordable prices.

    It isn't going to matter. People don't often remember ANY web address, .com or otherwise. They will remember the business name, and enter it into a search engine.

    i think it does not matter these days. Just pick whatever fits better with your business name. These original meanings .com = commerce are no longer relevant.

    .com is good because its very popular & old. but these days you have option to choose TLD for location you are targetting. for example if you are targetting deffirent countries like USA , UK then you can choose:


    us - United States - United Kingdom .com address
    .de - Germany

    If you have the choice between the two, choose .com over .net.


    I say that because of people's perceptions and no other reason. People are just more comfortable with .com's.


    There are so many factors in SEO that effect your rankings.  Content, backlinks and on-page optimizations weigh way more heavily than the TLD.

    Clarification on .com, .net, and .org:

    Domains ending with .COM are generally intended to be used for commercial businesses, which is why they're the most commonly seen domains in the United States. Domains ending with .NET are usually intended for networking services and internet service providers such as Comcast or AT&T's residential email addresses. .ORG domains are usually intended for non-profit organizations.

    The web site designing can be done in any laguage. Both the domain extentions .com and .net  have their pros and cons, however .net extensions are more used for private websites.
