Should I rebrand? Will having a non "dotcom" come back to haunt me?

    I have a new website with very little traffic that I wish to promote, I chose the domains vendorpages.inf# and vendorpages.#rg knowing one day I might have to re-brand once the website was completed and good enough to start driving traffic to. That day is approaching and so I thought instead of rebranding I would buy vendorpages.c#m, sadly that will cost me around 44k witch I am not willing to pay. Should I continue to re brand or should I just drive the traffic to vendorpages.inf#?

    Is the .net available? I would just use the .org if you already have links built to the domain otherwise just register a new one. I think it would depend on how much work you've put into your current domains.

    According to me .net is good enough to compete with a .com. I have seen many instances of a .net being higher in rankings than a .com. If the .net is not available, then continue with your .org. I wouldn't use .info because that extension has been scammed to death.
