    Hey there,
    I want to buy a EMD, but .com and .org are already sold.
    Which .tld should I take? .info or .net? Or .us?

    Thanks
    cable

    The best one would be the .net, followed by the .us and only as a last resort I would get the .info one.

    No question about it, what the previous posters said - in fact, many people consider .net equal to (or even superior to) .org,.

    '.net' is the one to go for.

    The "Big Three" are '.com', followed by '.net' and '.org'.

    '.info' has a bad reputation. It is generally associated with cheap, spammy sites, and conventional wisdom maintains that it is harder to rank (although some disagree with this idea).

    '.us' is generally considered better than '.info', but it would depend upon where you are geographically, and where your customers are. (If you're in the USA and your products/services are designed to appeal to US based customers only, then it makes sense. However, if you or your potential clients are in Europe or the UK, or in Asia, then it would probably be less practical. I would avoid it personally, and would certainly prefer ".net" if it's still available.

    .net, I wouldn't bother with a .us or .info unless the EMD is for a really hard keyword that would be difficult to rank for otherwise. I prefer to stick with .c/.n/.o whenever possible.
