    I'm about to buy a domain name and start my own website. I don't know whether to use .com, .net, or .org. Is there any difference?

    No difference between the first two, but .org implies it's a domain owned by some kind of organization.

    Registrations in the org are processed via accredited registrars worldwide. Anyone can register an org second-level domain. Although org was recommended for non-commercial entities, there are no restrictions to registration.

    The ONLY reason I'd say a .com is because I feel like that's the most common and easiest one to remember..but honestly there's a hardly a difference at all (other than .org mentioned earlier)

    We have a .net for my site. Recommended if your wanted .com is taken / not used / parked.

    I agree, go .com before .net
