Why choose a .com extension?

The .com extension is one of the most recognized domains in the world; nothing screams professionalism and reliability quite like a .com top-level domain (TLD). Position yourself for success with a cheap URL and enjoy the advantages of having a .com website – the ideal solution for those looking to penetrate the international market.

The right address for your company

Due to the credibility of the .com domain extension, it has fast become the global online standard – this is why every Fortune 500 company, and the world's fastest-growing companies, have a .com domain. The .com domain is often used to engage with a global audience, especially when it comes to online shops; the reliable and trustworthy nature of the domain extension goes a long way when it comes to entering your credit card details for online purchases. Position your company for success with a domain name from IONOS.

Advantages of a .com gTLD

  • Target a greater audience: Since .com is the most popular extension, there is no doubt that the widest audience possible will be reached
  • Memorable: A catchy TLD is of the utmost importance for an established business. With a .com website, you can rest assured that it will stay on the tip of everybody's tongue.
  • Credibility: Although .com domain endings are relatively cheap URLs, they are one of the most well respected TLDs in the world and are highly coveted.
  • Value: As .com domain availability is decreasing, the domain's value is going up, and many are now resistant to give up their domain or to seek domain alternatives.
  • Default: Without even thinking, most people automatically type in the .com extension as the default extension, which can lead to increased traffic to your site.

What is a .com domain?

When the Domain Name System was implemented, .com was one of the first generic top level domains (gTLDs) created, and has since become the most popular. The .com domain meaning is simple: originally the .com suffix stood for "commercial", and was used by and to identify businesses online. The idea behind this was that TLDs would be used to categorize websites for users; this can also be seen in other purpose-designed TLDs such as .gov (government) .edu (education) and .org (organization), all of which are still in use today.

If I already have a domain from a different provider, can I move it to IONOS?

As .com extensions are widely popular and may not always be available, there are plenty of other .com domain alternatives for you to consider – all of which convey trust and professionalism. Perhaps you could use a location specific domain such as a .us extension, or maybe even something that resonates specifically with your project, such as .store for an online shop. Whatever your preference, there are plenty of .com domain alternatives to choose from:

  • .business
  • .email
  • .website
  • .video
  • .online
  • .shop
  • .gov
  • .edu
  • .club
  • .consulting

More than 100 million registrations worldwide speak for themselves – clearly, the .com domain is the most commonly used domain extension worldwide. In its early stages, .com was supposed to be used for commercial purposes, since it is an abbreviation for the word "commerce". Today, however, it is used for all purposes – personal, professional and commercial. One of the prime reasons for registering another .com domain is if you are expanding your business. If, for example, your company is already successful in the US, and you're looking to expand it to Mexico, you could register a second .com.mx domain to cater exclusively for the Mexican .com.mx market. Additionally, many domain traders and businesses extend their domain portfolio in order to protect their brand on the internet. They then turn not only to the classic domain endings like .com, .org, .net or .info, but they also use new domain extensions like .online, .shop or .tech.
