    Hey everyone..

    So.. I finally found something that I want to make..
    And I have a programmer doing it atm..

    I need a domain for my site but I am not sure what TLD I should choose.

    Its a game site with 1 game on.

    Which TLD is best for google and ranking high?

    .Net
    .io
    .xyz

    .net seems a bit obvious.. But any thoughts from you guys?
    The .com is taken and is not an active website.

    Ranking wise it shouldn't make any difference but for branding purposes you should go with one of the more memorable for the average person. This is why .com domains are so much more valuable than any other TLD.

    In your case I would definitely go with .net

    .net, because people trust .com, .net and .org
