Your domain registration for .COM has now been completed. What’s next? Sit back, and enjoy?! Not yet!!
You can choose from a number of domain extensions on the market, such as .net, .org, .biz, and .mobi. The number of them that you register should be at least a few. Some of the reasons are as follows:
COMPETITION IS REDUCED
It is quite common for people to remember only the name of a company, but not its web address. Consequently, when they are interested in visiting that particular business’ website, they may forget the domain extension. Therefore, you should register multiple domain extensions for your primary domain name to protect your online identity and prevent competitors from buying other extensions of your domain.
CATEGORIES TO TARGET
If you register a country code top-level domain name, such as .US, .CA, or .CO.UK, you can design the website content to target different groups of people based on the country where they are located.
Having more than one domain extension on your website can definitely be beneficial, and it doesn’t take much more effort either. By simply forwarding your domain extensions to your primary domain extension, you do not need to create separate websites for each of your domain extensions. So, for example, if a user visits www.yourbusiness.ca and you have enabled domain forwarding between your .CA and .COM domains, they will be redirected to www.yourbusiness.com.
