Everyone keeps taking continuously about domain name extensions and their possible benefits and demerits. Almost every other country now sells domains with its own extensions. As an expired domain trader, you have a range of choices and options while buying a domain name. However, the current preference and flavor is still the dot com extensions, as most of the internet surfers have a habit of typing .com name, even though they are not sure of the actual domain name. Strangely, people never remember any other extensions, other than a name with dot com extension.

It is a blessing in disguise for most expired domain name traders as web surfers automatically type in.com most of the time. Next to a dot com web domain name, web surfers remember .net and .org extensions. If you are not successful in buying a dot com name, you can choose a good .net expired domain name. If you are running a non profit, you can go ahead and buy a dot org name. However, you can stay clear of this name as the current demand for an expired dot org name is very low.

Of late, two other extensions, dot biz and dot info expired domain names are available for purchase with a number of expired domain traders. Several leading businesses and organizations prefer dot biz and dot info names to carry out their business activities.

There are several other international expired domain name extensions like dot ws, dot fm, dot tv and others. You may find several domain name traders trying to promote these names with glossy and shining campaigns. It is preferable to stay away from these domains, as they are actually worthless and waste of your time. Country specific domain names are also available for you to purchase. Most of the countries of the world have their specific domain name extensions and a number of them are expiring almost everyday. However, most of these names could be too restrictive to be of any real commercial value. You may also need to be the bona fide citizens of some countries to be able to buy country specific domain names.
