.io vs .com? Different Domain

I came across boogle.com :laughing:

Anyone knows what’s the difference between .io or .com?

I mean I know they are two different domains :face_with_monocle:. What I read online when I researched is that .io is something new tech startups would use. But why would people prefer .com over .io?

And also :thinking:, if .io is the main domain for most tech companies, why should boogle considering porting over?

I think .com usually for commercial use. However, .io originally meant by input and output, which makes io domains relevant to technology. I guess tech company like to use that .?

That’s so true. For people who aren’t into tech that is. :rofl:

Haha, I know what you mean. But at the same thing isn’t porting over a huge hassle? I mean, why .com?

I mean, why .com?

Both are powerful domains. From what I know,

.io

:heavy_check_mark: is a ccTLD for the British Indian Ocean Territory
:heavy_check_mark: more availability than traditional domain endings - Which means there is more space available
:heavy_check_mark: great opportunity for a domain hack - Which means it can suggest a word, phrase or name when concatenating two or more adjacent levels. Thus, in this context, the word “hack” denotes a clever trick (as in programming), not an exploit or break-in (as in security). Essentially, domain hacks offer the ability to produce short domain names.
:heavy_check_mark: are recognizable by tech and startup communities - As you said, it’s popular among startups :slight_smile:

.com

:heavy_check_mark: is a top-level domain (TLD) in the Domain Name System of the Internet
:heavy_check_mark: it’s the most popular and valuable extension from the after market perspective - Easy, Familiar, Powerful, Popular
:heavy_check_mark: best domain extension for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

A website with the domain .com is likely to be more memorable, reliable and professional for people who want to use a company product compared to some non-popular domains.

FYI: Top domains includes .com | .gov | .edu

Hope I have given you a better insight on why boogle might wanna choose .com as their domain :slight_smile: Cheers! @babyliciouoo
