What is the difference in extensions?

Is the selection of extensions, e.g., .com versus .net, important? What's the difference?

Thank you for your question on domain extensions. Think of an extension as a 'last name' for your domain. This means that each domain name (first part + 'last name' extension) is a separate name and can be a separate website. Though some claim that .com is still the King of extensions, there are many, many others out there. Some are industry specific, others country specific. It is more a matter of taste and availability as no preference is given in the search engines bases on the extension alone.
