    If you're aiming more for uk customers and want to get better ranked in uk search engines, go with the co.uk, otherwise stick with a .com

    well my target wud be both uk and outside uk.. thats wat i was thinkin aswell.. however the plan is to go for a good affiliate commission so ranking in search engine is not my top priority as far as i have a few good affiliates... ? know wat i mean
    plus i really like the domain name sadly its not available in a .com

    howeve ri understand it is much easier cashing in ppl from other countries with a .com rather then .co.uk

    i think i answered my own question.
    thanks anyways guys

    I'd say .com is better. i have never seen a Sales page with .us or .uk domains.

    Well, you can go for both the domains - target UK based affiliates/customers with .uk domain and International affiliates/customers with .com domain. Just make sure not to have duplicate content across these domains.

    Go for both if you're in doubt - you can always redirect your .co.uk one to your .com one if you want, or hold different pitches on the UK one compared to the .com one.
