.NET and .COM Are Still the Favorites


.net and .com are two of the original domain name extensions and remain two of the most popular selections.  Most businesses will look first for a .com or a .net for their business, even going with a long domain name to find one that works with one of these two extensions.  As a secondary option some businesses may turn to a .biz, .co or .pro for a shorter domain name as these are all newer and have more options with fewer characters available, but most will still make sure to have a .com or .net as well.

From Whois Source total domains across .COM, .NET, .ORG, .INFO, .BIZ, and .US domains as of October 22, 2013 were 147,518,378 with new registrations that day of 134,164 and deletions of 133,740.  .COM domains accounted for 75% of those domains and .NET comes in second at 10%.  This leaves a lot of room for the use of the .NET extension.
