Hello. Straight to the point.
I intend to register a domain name, but I don't know where: .COM or .ORG?
Yes, I know about prices. Yes, .COM is for commerce, and .ORG is simple for regular community websites.
Future community and association website, but still want .COM.

What are the registration differences between .COM and .ORG?
What are the difficulties in registering for .COM?
What do you suggest? Comrades advise .ORG.


For .ORG, the choice is better, although if you are going to register a thread of a three-story domain name or have a sufficient budget and a desire to spend it on this business, then COM is also possible. Both fit the theme. There is no difference in registration.

A huge number of .COMs are not registered, but bought from tech. administrators. But if you have already picked up a free one, then everything is OK.
Buy whatever you like, even .com .org. .net - hard binding, that coma only commerce - no.


Expansion .com is widely used for commercial purposes around the world.
Companies prefer .com domain names because they are a recognized symbol of business and commercial presence.
In fact, the domain name extension .com has become the most popular gTLD (Generic top-level domain) and is used by the vast majority of registered domain names today.

The .org(organization) domain name is available to everyone around the world.
Websites of non-profit organizations, NGOs and trade associations are the most common users of this extension.
Currently, there is a trend of people starting a business and registering domains with various extensions in order to provide users with more than one way to access the desired domain (they can be redirected to the main domain, from one of the secondary ones).
In addition, the universal top-level domains .com,  .org are used for any purpose around the world and there are no restrictions in their use (some others, such as .edu and .gov, need permission to use).

What matters is whether you are considering a choice .org, because the .com domain name is already registered by another person?
This would be on the verge of fraud, given that you will be competing for users with the owner of the .com domain name.
This is not a good idea.
But, there are not so many positive personalities on the web today, and in business too..

Also, people tend to assume that a domain name whose extension they don't remember is probably .com. For this reason , they will switch to .COMs may end up on your competitor's web site.


The .org extension is better for nonprofit websites, while the .com extension is better for businesses selling products or services. Which one you choose has little impact on SEO value. Select wisely which one you want.
