Madhouse’s great big list of important domain extensions

In order of importance to US businesses

.com  –  The gTLD (Generic Top Level Domain ) the park avenue address
.net   –  gTLD originally meant for groups and communities
.org   –  gTLD originally for non-profits and still best-practice to reserve it for that
.us    –  ccTLD (country level domain extension) for United States
.mobi  –  TLD meant for mobile … future prospecting may not end up that important
.biz   –  gTLD meant for Businesses
.pro   –  gTLD (Top Level Domain) for professionals
.co    –  ccTLD for Columbia… or “company
.ws    –  ccTLD for Western Samoa… or “website”
.tv    –  ccTLD for Tuvala… media publishers might move this up to position #2 after .com
.cc    –  ccTLD for Cocos (Keeling) Islands
.info  –  gTLD could be moved up for informational sites
.name   –  gTLD could be moved up for a personal site
.me   –  as in “myself” and “I” (ccTLD for Montenegro)

1)  source: the sometimes foggy brains at mad house graphics
2)  non-profits should move .ORG to the top of the list
3)  list based on importance to US companies

Would you move .CC down? Would you put .CO before .PRO? Have you seen many companies snapping up .CO’s? Is .CO a rising star? Maybe we need to rethink our .CO position 🙂
