Derived from the word ‘network’, the top level domain ‘.net’ was once popular with organisations who dealt with networking technologies (such as infrastructure companies). However, this ending is now very common across a variety of sectors, from informational organisations to some companies. In many cases it is viewed as an alternative and less commercial version of ‘.com’.
‘.net’ is the fourth most popular top-level domain, in part thanks to its generality. There are no restrictions on its use, whether you intend to sell, inform or otherwise, and no matter where you are in the world.
Who should use the .net TLD?
The ‘.net’ top level domain is a good choice for users who don’t want to restrict their audience to a specific country, as well as those who don’t want to make their site feel like a commercial enterprise. ‘.net’ can mean any number of things, and as it is fairly common, it’s seen as trustworthy and familiar.
Examples of people who might choose the ‘.net’ top level domain include those who run informational sites, magazines, communities, and more. Additionally, if your choice of domain name is already taken by a ‘.com’ site, you may wish to register it as a ‘.net’ site instead.
