.com or .net ?

.com or .net ?

I have access to both .net and .com for a domain name. Was wondering if I should use .net as the main domain and redirect .com to .net.

What would you guys think?

    Definitely use the .com as primary.

    Use a .in domain :D

    But seriously, I'd go with the .com unless you want to build some kind of network or something under this brand.

  • Currently I'm redirecting my .net to my .com But if you want to create a large network, maybe it's better to use the .net

    It is for a gaming community. So. Com might be fun huh.

    Then use .net, if there is no commercial activity and its a network of people.

    I would like redirect .com to .net, since it's not for profit.

    I'm a stupid cat, don't blame me.

    Redirect the .net to the .com. Why? Because honestly, when you're putting in a domain, what TLD would you put first? .com.

    .ca of course ;)

  • Buy both first and we'll figure out which one sounds better.

    But it'll most likely be .com

    I had the same quandary when I was setting up my server's site quite a while ago, as I owned both .com and .net. Since it was a gaming community (a network of people), and I like .net, I used .net and did a server-side redirect from .com to .net. So far, it's worked great.
