Does a .info Domain Look Cheap?

by 2 comments
As you know, .info domain names are inexpensive but how do they look to prospective buyers?
I have associated .info's in the past with adsense sites and quick promotional gimmicks but does the public see this as well?
Would you as an experienced web head or IM'r buy a product from a .info website?

Reason is that I am developing a report and the domain terms that I have selected are too popular to get a .com or .net.
The .info's are available and since I budget low, this would be better at least until I see that it is going to work okay.

I am not trying to get S.E. traffic but direct so I am not concerned with ranking at this time.

Let me know what you think about .info domains.

Thank You

    I don't judge domains by the extension. So an .info domain to me doesn't seem cheap. I don't know about others opinions. But I wouldn't hold a .info against it. I find a lot of good .com names are just ad pages with no content.

    There were some good domains but the .com and .net and .org were taken so I went ahead and got the .info cause that was all that was available besides .mobi or .tv. Then when there was a .99 sale I grabbed some.

      Hey.. the squeeze page for one of my lists is a .info and it's converting just as well as others..

      So, overall..I have never had issues with them... I bought maybe 10 or 15 for conduit method site's a while back and I have put 6 into action so far as review site's... most performed as I expected which was pretty cool and one didn't perform too well but that was my end and not to do with the extension...

      Some people may disagree, but IMHO extension discrimination is unjustified..

    Hello. I want to be successful internet marketer. I have the zeal and passion to achieve this aim. But what restricting me to do this is money. As heading of my post says you would know that am from India. If you compare price of dollar with India Rupee its somewhere around $1=Rs. 66 which is increasing day by day. My budget would be $100/month which is equal to Rs. 6600. This is maximum I can spend. I dont have high paying job and also I have to pay rent, bills, etc. I need to pay for domain, hosting, bing ads, fb ads, landing page and so on. I know there are free methods too but as you say free methods take time to show result.

    Have a very special client. I like to call him the Sheikh. He does not mind. In return, he says that I am a Petrol Writer. This client is generous when it comes to pricing and payments. I have never been greedy. Just like Tom Cruise used to say in the Oblivion: We are an effective team! This gentleman is born and raised in Kuwait. He earned his degree in some prestigious London business school. Yet, when it comes to the business culture, he obviously follows the region of his origin. We do not discuss the price. We do not negotiate. Never. He orders the work. I deliver. Then, he asks how much needs to be paid. I get my money. That is it. Smooth and simple. For what is worth, so far, we have worked only on relatively small projects. Until recently. This was a client only to wish for. Guess, it is not only in my nature, but I was not quite satisfied. I wished we could do some more work. And, you know what happens when you wish for something. It happens to you, but not exactly the way you wanted to get it. So, one fine day, the Sheikh approached me with an unusual proposal. Like I passed all the test, and the time has come for the real thing. What he had on his mind was a book about his personal and professional journey, somewhere around 200 to 300 pages. A brand new website. We are talking about a few dozen pages at least. Then, there was a package of 30 blogs, give it or take. He also needed some scripts for promotion videos, but he was not quite sure how many of them.

    I read recently that as of late August, Google has removed the 3 adsense units per page limit and replaced it with a policy that has no specific limit but which requires that the amount of ads not exceed the amount of content. Is anyone familiar with this and can anyone suggest how best to implement this.
