When I think of the current state of domain extensions, I am reminded of the Waylon Jennings lyrics:
It don’t matter whose in Austin, Bob Wills is still the King
Or when it comes to domain names, it don’t matter the extension, dot com is still the king.
You tip your hat to the ladies in the rose of San Antone
You tip your hat to some of the other extensions. .net and .org have mindshare and startups like the .io, .co and .ai extensions.
Quite a few startups are using other tlds, but how many them wish they had the .com? Most companies try to purchase the .com version of their domain name as soon as they can. Other extensions come and go but .com is still the king.
You can hear the Grand Ol’ Opry in Nashville Tennessee
Its the home of country music on that we all agree
But when you cross that ol’ Red River hoss,
That just don’t mean a thing
Once you’re down in Texas, Bob Wills is still the King
Country code (cc) tlds have their place and always will, Australia and Ireland for example love the their country code related domain names. But when you cross over into the U.S. that (extension) just don’t mean a thing. Once you’re in the USA dot com is still the king…
