There are different zones: .info, .net, .com, .fr, etc. What is their disparity? What difference does it make what zone you have?
Which is better for a regular website or blog?


There are also .org - for non-profit organizations, .mil - military, .gov - government. And country domains (.no - Norway, .ua - Ukraine, .uk - Great Britain, etc.)

Fundamental differentiation? Basically money. Also, being in the .ru domain, you should always be prepared for the fact that, according to the decision of the prosecutor's office, you will be suspended from the domain.
According to some countries laws, registrars in their  domain zones must report information about the owners of the domain to law enforcement agencies. In all sorts of .com and .net - it seems to be like no.


Domain — the name of web site that the user will type in the address bar of his browser, consists of two parts: the domain name and the domain name zone. If everything is more or less clear with the name, then questions arise in connection with the domain zone.
The domain zone usually characterizes its purpose and its regional affiliation.

An example of the purpose of domain name zones:
.com are public domains (from the word "commercial")
.biz — refers to commercial enterprises (from the word "business")
.gov belong to state organizations, (from the word "government")
.org — non—profit or public organizations (from the word "organization")
.net — associated with network projects
.info - information and reference web sites

Regional domains denote belonging to a country:
.ua — Ukraine,
.de — Germany,
.in — India,
.us — USA,
.su — former USSR countries

Distinguish the domains of the second (for example site.com ) and the third ( site.org.ua ) level.
Registration of second—level domains is necessarily a paid procedure, respectively, owning a second-level domain is prestigious, and search engines index such web sites better.

Third-level domains are usually free (but not all), search engines "see" them worse, the domains themselves are longer and look clumsy.
In addition, many do not take commercial projects on a free domain seriously. The registration fee is small, but weeds out random people and "freeloaders".
