    use .net for a brandable domain? I found a really catchy name that already has .com taken and just wondering if for an authority site .net works too. Or is it worth literally scavenging for .com (short) domains for my brandable site?

    Thanks.

    'Will it work' from what perspective? If just for building an authority site, sure, no issue.

    Yes. To build an authority/brandable domain like amazon but I see a lot of authority sites do not use .net so I was just wondering.

    no great different in .com or .net , other than 96% people will always go to the dot com version.

    .org seems to be a good idea.
