I've come up with a really good one that's not in use anywhere but I can't get the ".COM" for it (some domain investor has already grabbed it).
Do I really need the ".COM" TLD? Should this be a factor when choosing a new brand name? If you were to visit a site with the ".COM" v.s. without (e.g. with ".IO" or ".APP"), would your opinion of said site change?
And then, in your opinion, in what order do other TLDs line up?
P.S. The post title is ".C-O-M" because Indie Hackers thinks that ".COM" is a URL and won't let me put it in my post title. Sorry if that was confusing!
