Completely agree with “Webwork”, .br.com does not make any sense. Suggestion for “xnavigator” : you can still purchase .com.br (real Brazilian Domain) without residing in Brazil; I have done it through marcaria.com. They clearly mention that if you do not meet the residence requirement, they can proceed with registration of the domain in their own name in Brazil and make it available for you to use without any problem. This worked for me and this is completely legal and authentic. I will share my .com.br web address as soon as it is live with content. Brazil Domain Registration is not as hard as you think; you just need a right and authentic registrar with CPF or CNPJ number.
