Get a .com if you can

Here's a hint for your internet publishing: if you are registering a domain, get a .com address if you possibly can.

Yes, all of the one word sites are gone. Long ago. But if you have a choice of a relatively short address with a .tv or .mobi (to give 2 examples; there are others) and a longer one with a .com, go for the .com: people still default to .com.

I saw a very good new video site. I went to it, and typed in the address, and didn't get it. The problem, of course, is that their catchy name was .tv and I defaulted to what almost everyone does: .com.

Don't let your site lose out on visitors. This is especially true for churches.
