I really am a novice when it comes to domains so this is probably a stupid question but there are always these different styles of domains coming out. Just wondered if someone could give me an insight on them (i.e. best, worst, oldest, newest, avoid, must-have, benefits, disadvantages, etc) The reason I ask is that I have taken over as a web developer / SEO guy from someone who has been working on some projects for several years and then left the company. I have ZERO experience in my new job role and am just trying to build up a bit of knowledge before diving in at the deep end. I assume that your .com was the original player and consequently the "best" type of domain to own but what about all these new domains? Who or what decides there should be a .name or a .me.uk and are these of any value?
