What is a domain name?
A domain name is the most recognized system for assigning addresses to Internet web servers. The domain name system helps to give every Internet server a memorable and easy to spell address.
Do I need a .com or .ca domain name?
It depends on your target market. The .com top level domain is the most recognized and popular. That means that you likely won’t be able to find an easy to remember domain name that is available.
The .ca top level domain is limited to Canadian based websites and will be seen as a Canadian service by a customer. If you are providing a product worldwide you might want to purchase a more generic domain name.
The name you choose for your website is important to search engine rankings but the top level domain (.com) isn’t. Recently, top search engines, including Google, have adjusted their algorithms so that other domain extensions other than the most popular won’t be penalized.
Choose a domain name that contains keywords that people who want your product will be searching for. A coffee shop would choose genericcoffee.ca, for example.
