Does .net make sense for your business i.e is your site about a network of widgets? Could it grow into a network of widgets one day? or is net meaningless?
In the uk .co.uk's (2nd level .uk's not allowed) are found advertised quite often. I can't remember when I last saw a .net advertised in the non computer press, most days we see .com .co.uk .tv and sometimes .info
very true but both are not available now (my mistake, should have bought it earlier). With the advise over here i have picked up the.net though which seems good enough for now and will keep on looking and if things wok out will do a 301 to a new domain by shifting the business to new domain.
