  • Dear DNForum.com user,

    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. As we are based in Gibraltar which is part of the EU and we have customers all over the world we are obligated to follow the new regulation as of May 25, 2018.

    Accordingly, although we must request full contact information from each of you so our systems and webpage may continue to function we will restrict processing and data transfers as much as possible. When logged into DNForum.com we will display only your chosen handle and no other specific information unless requested by you. In order to request your specific information be revealed please go into your account settings and check the radio boxes next to the information. By default all information is private.

    To cover all aspects of GDPR we have published a new / updated agreement (which includes our terms and privacy policy) that will become effective on May 25, 2018. It may be found at: https://www.dnforum.com/help/terms/

    Onward and upwards;

There is no fixed "exchange rate" between the com and the net. Dot .net domains can sell for hundreds, or for tens of thousands of dollars. It all depends on the ability of the seller to extract a higher price from the buyer. I've sold .net domains for five figures. Germans love .net domains.

.com is used for commercial business; most of the online seller used this domain.

.net is used for networking services and internet service providers.

[dot]com is used for globally as it is commercial TLD. Most of the network companies using [dot]net by representing their service. [dot]org is used by organizations and trust. ... Yes, people in general type the domain and type .com after that, but that is because .com was first publicly known extension.

When you are choosing a domain name, one of the things you need to consider is what comes after the dot (in geeky terms, the TLD or Top Level Domain). ... .netdomain names were typically used by network companies (technical organisations). .org was traditionally meant for charities and non-profit organisations..

I think in this year old thread we have established the difference between the two. Most people agree (some even use exactly the same copy/paste).
