    Question Buying a personal domain, which one?

    Hello guys,



    I am planning to buy a personal domain for hosting my blog. I am not sure it should either be a .de or .com domain. Which one would you choose?
    You suck. Suck a little less and become a fan on Facebook.

    When you type something into the URL-bar, and hold Ctrl and then press enter, then it will automaticly come "www." before, and ".com" after, atleast when you use firefox with standard settings.

    So if your domain is "www.hendricius.com", I would only have to write "hendricius" and press Ctrl + Enter. So for most people, it would be easyer to get to the .com domain.

    Well, that is just my opinion.

    Isn't .com like commercial? So only if you are going to advertise
    Else you have to go hendricius.name

    Commercial isn't always advertise, it could also go for businesses, merchants, public things, etc.

    Any who I would recommend .com just for its popularity.

    Definetly .com I hate .de or .anything else than .com. because:
    1st of all .com is international
    2nd of all: It has to be in Engish

    however just typing "hendricius" would get the same result, cus it attempts .com first if nothing was supplied.

    I wouldnt use either, id go with a custom extension if u can get one, makes it even more of a person blog
