  • Types of Domain Names

    There are three types of Domain Name (TLD's)

    1. Generic Domains: These Domain Names are globally used and any one can register. .com, .net, .org, .info
    2. Geographic Domains: These Domain Names are used when the website requires to target one specific country. .in, .uk, .us, .eu
    3. Niche Domains: These Domain Names are used when you think of same industry domain names. Like a news company can choose .news domain tld in their domain name. .news, .photo, .tv, .club

    All the above mentioned domain names are Top Level Domains (TLD).
    There are few Second Level and Third level domain names.

    I used Generic Domains because this is globally used and known for everyone. Anyone can register using .com, .net, etc.

      Is there any benefit to using one over the other? For instance using .com over .jp (since I'm in Japan at the moment), would you say it's better to use .com for a more global reach? Or is it much of a muchness when it comes to one over the other?

        I often use generic domains. It is where all the contents i was looking for can be found. It redirects me to websites outside our country and extract sources form other websites all over the globe.

          If you are targeting a global market then .com. But if you want to target only Japan,then you will need to use .jp, as countrywide domain TLD will have more SEO value.
