What is The Best Domain Extension? (TLD)


With dozens of top level domains (domain extensions) to choose from, it may be hard to decide which TLD is best for your website.

This question is kind of hard to answer. Everyone’s situation is different. There is no “best” TLD, but only the best one for you.

The Best Domain Extension

The best domain extension should be chosen to help you create a stronger brand identity and improve results in your marketing.  The only way you can make this choice is by deciding what is important to you, and how you want portray your website/business.

Let’s start by going over the different types of TLD’s you can choose from.

Industry/Profession TLD’s:

Below is a small sampling of the business industry or career specific words you can use as a domain extension.

  • .Agency
  • .Accountant
  • .Cafe
  • .Church
  • .Lawyer
  • .Marketing
  • .Realtor

There are dozens more that you can pick, which are specific to your industry or professional title.

Product/Service TLD’s:

For those who want to have a very specific product offering and convey that in their domain name, you may want to look for TLD’s like the following.

  • .Bike
  • .Camera
  • .Computer
  • .Cruises
  • .Diamonds
  • .Events
  • .Tattoo

There are also many different domain extensions that target all kinds of different lifestyle, sports, education and commerce.

Our Opinion on Domain Extensions

While they are definitely interesting, and useful for vanity branding plays or independent marketing campaigns. Buying a .ca, .com or .net domain is in our opinion still the best option.

If you own a Canadian business or do business in Canada, having a .ca domain will help build trust with your consumers and give you more weight in the search engines (SEO).

For this reason, we believe you should put a .ca domain at the top of your list.

In Conclusion

While there are many different domain extensions to choose from, it’s hard to define where the benefit lies in choosing something more unique (aside from branding plays/marketing campaigns).

The verdict? Most should stick with traditional TLD’s.
