How to choose a domain extension for your site?
The domain extension appears after the domain name of the site, for example domain.com, where .com is the extension and domain is the site name.
There are many domain extensions, and for Israeli sites it is highly recommended to select the .co.il extension. Extensions such as .com or .net are more suitable for sites that appeal to an international audience, but they are second priority after the .co.il extension, if it is not available.
The .com suffix is very common all over the world and there are even extensions that characterize certain countries. The .net suffix we all know from a variety of URLs is also very popular for computer companies, communications, international trading sites and so on.
Examples of extensions:
