How Do You Choose Your TLD?

#1
When it comes to choosing my Top Level Domain, I always use a .COM, because it's the most popular. Most people know this and are accustomed to searching a. dot.com and having .com domain also projects a sense of stability to my site.

Samples of Top Level Domains
.NET
.ORG
.INFO
.GOV
.EDU
.INT
.MIL

There are hundreds more to pick from. So how do you choose your TLD's?

Sometimes I like domain hacks. The following would be examples:
  • NycMarketing.Info
  • ThePlayers.Club
  • AbcTo.Xyz
Anyway, I also like a good .com or perhaps a non-.com connected to an powerful keyphrase like GuitarLesson.Biz.

What is a domain hack? I have read similar comments in the past on what type of domain people prefer, and most of the experts agree if you are trying to brand yourself and take your business seriously, then you should always find a dot.com, however, you will also hear that all the good domains are taken, then you have to make a decision on the 2nd best domain you are looking for, or the domain type you will settle for.

I think I'm more comfortable working with a dot.com domain because it's something that has been more popular and mostly used. Even when I come up to sites online, I don't find it easy doing anything on sites that are not using dot.com domain. A domain with dot.org is also popular but not like its dot.com counterparts.

dot.com are the most popular domains in the world, not only that, a dot.com has far more trust than other domain types. I would trust makemoney.com compared to something like makemoney.club; A dot.com will carry more trust then dot.net, dot.org, dot.biz, dot.info, etc...
