Would you rather register a .net or .org?

    .com is taken. It costs $15,000 to buy it. I can register .net or .org or .info. The website name is similar to drivingtests.com. What looks better? Drivingtests.org or Drivingtests.net ?

    Most will likely say they're the same, though I've had much more success with .net when it comes to rankings for sme reason.

    I can also find a .com but it will not be an EMD (for 67k searches) not that EMD matters as much thesedays. Also I assume that rabking all 3 extensions is the same? Does .com rank better than .net or .org?

    This question pops around from time to time and there are no solid evidences like one ranks better than the another but I'd register .net over a .org if .com is unavailable.

    I've seen a lot more .net domains rank high than .org ones, so I would go with a .net. (This is not based on any data, just something I noticed)

    I would only get .org if it's a non-profit. Or else the extension might be confusing for some people
