Personally, I find .com more easy to remember. It tends to “roll” better with the domain.

If you could get your toll free number to say something like 1-800-GET-CASH, or something memorable like that, it could be great for marketing/branding.

You’ll find successful examples in other businesses/industries.

Hello All,

Been doing some head scratching the last couple of days regarding getting my website up and running and wanted to run a couple things by you folks, if you please.

First off, you folks think there’s any difference betwween having a .com versus a .net or other type ending on your website? Can’t get the .com I wanted, but I got it for the .net. Just wondering if people remember the .net like they do with the .com

Second (and last), I thought about using my tollfree number as my website name (that is available as a .com) and was wondering what you folks thought about that. I think its a good idea to have the phone number as the website name because it helps the people remember your phone number more while my partner thinks it don’t matter a bit.

Thank you for your time.

Hi Harry,

I own a web design and Internet solutions firm and what we have found is that having a .com extension is always better.

With regard to having your toll free number for the website name - I agree with the response from NC, however, if it is all numbers, no one will remember it, as your number is not one that will be called frequently enough to commit to memory.
