.com has evolved into a universal catch-all extension for web addressing. So its
the most flexible extension to have.
.info is especially great for developing exchange
portals/vortals for both b2b and b2c. My development model, for example, is based
on bringing together a mega network of prime .info adddresses representing a single
b2b industry vortal, something like a supermall.
.biz is great for services and
consulting businesses. So a name like domainconsultant.biz is perfect and looks good
on email to clients. Remember that the email is one of the most visible manifestations
of your domain name.

and .biz goes truely mainstream. So be prepared for stamina to develop and hold for
at least that period of time. It will be foolish to sell anything now what with the
downbeat sentiment today coupled with the lack of mainstream familiarity with the
Whatever it is, I have no doubt that the early birds in the game
in acquiring the best .info and .biz names will be rewarded for their efforts in
the coming years, some marginally, some a lot.

name for 2 years, the question should really be 'why not?' if I can get a GOOD .biz
and .info name.
But if it is a .bz, .tv, .ws... hmmm...
