Doodlebug's recent thread about .me.uk domains got me thinking. I've always gone for .co.uks and .coms, thinking they were they only extensions worth acquiring, and have only recently picked up a few other extensions. But why? I can really point to no reason other than some abstract notion that these are seen as somehow more solid and reliable. But why should this be the case? Of course .co.uks and .coms have a much higher public visibility, so isn't only going for those a tacit admission that they're purchased with regard to the opinions of others, for resale rather than development? That's strange for me, as I always buy with the intention of developing, so shouldn't I consider other extensions? Just wondered what you all thought about this. Why do domainers prefer some extensions over others? Are .co.uk and .com really better? Or are you one of the people that happily trades and develops all types? Interested to hear your thoughts... Mike.
