Here’s a weird question for you… are you enough of a geek that you actually type in domain names by hand? I do! I know some people these days prefer to search for their favorite sites (many of you come to Blogthings simply by searching for “blogthings), but I still type them in the old fashioned way. For sites I might forget, I make a bookmark, but in the end, I do a lot of typing.
If you’ve been on the internet a while (and I know most of you have!), I’m sure you know all about the different type of domain names out there. Of course, the good old standby is .com, but there is a lot more to the internet than .com… we have .org, and .net for starters. Anyone is allowed to get those! And for specific types of institutions, you’ve got .edu and .gov… and then there’s all the country codes like .uk and .au, things like .biz and .info and so on! It’s hard to keep all the domain suffixes straight, but luckily there are a few main ones. I remember back before the internet was cool, people used to agonize over which domain suffix they should get 🙂
Do you see domain suffixes as having certain personalities? Is an org or edu website more your style? Take my latest quiz to find out! What Domain Suffix Are You? Comment below and let me know what you got 🙂
