ranking the TLDs (second-best choice)

Hi all,

What TLD do you select when the .com is not available ?

I am speaking about commercial websites in English meant for a global audience. Please assume that taking another .com domain is not an option. Thanks.

I would recommend .net for a commercial web site

.org is mostly associated with non-profit organizations. It is also used charities, and used by the open-source movement

.net will be perfectly fine. You can even use the ccTLD's of your choice when .com is not available.

I am switching more towards .orgs these days... The values have surpassed the .nets in a lot of cases, especially anything medical or health related.
If the .com is fully developed I stay away from the .nets and .orgs all together. If its not developed, then I look to the net or org.

.net is my favorite, after .com. I would use .org only if I had an organisation. Otherwise, why would I?
