What is the .com part of a domain called?

The .com at the end of a domain is called a top-level domain (TLD). A TLD is also commonly referred to as a domain extension. The .com TLD is the most common domain extension out of hundreds that are available for registration.

What does .com mean?

The .com top-level domain (TLD) is short for “commercial”, but it doesn’t have to serve a commercial / business purpose. People often use a .com simply because it’s the most widely known TLD and is available to anyone.

What country is .com for?

A .com domain is unrelated to any country and can be used by anyone anywhere.

For how many years can I buy .com domains?

You can buy your .com domain for anywhere from 1-10 years. And, as is the case with most things, the longer term you get, the more potential savings you have. So register your domain for as long as you want, and go from there.

Why are .com domains better?

A .com domain isn't better, per se, it's just very common. They're globally recognized, which means that if you're starting a business and plan to go international at some point, a .com domain works just fine. And it's become something of a default domain when people go hunting for their dream project.

But none of that makes it better. We have thousands of different domains out there, from .art to .xyz. It's just that a .com domain, because it's so ubiquitous, can drive a lot of attention. That means that if you've got a good idea for a domain, and you can get the .com — even if you want another domain, too — you probably should.

Are .com domains better for SEO?

In a word, yes. Since .com has been around for so long, there tends to be a search engine bias towards it. Now that doesn't mean that other domains aren't searchable, but if you have an option that will work with a .com, you should scoop it up while you can. They are immensely popular, after all.
