Using Cheaper Domain Extensions For Landing Pages

I'm just getting ready to purchase a domain for a landing page that will be used for PPC advertising. Do you think I should purchase a .com domain, or use a cheaper .site, website, online domain extension instead? The other domain extensions are much cheaper than the .com, so I could always use the money that I saved for additional advertising. Do you think using something other than a .com would affect conversions?

    The money you save???? How much you talking about? A few dollars? What sort of additional advertising will that afford you?

    If you think it will make you money, then go .com and quit farting around. Be serious, and you will be taken seriously.

  • You should get a .com domain for long term investment. It is not very expensive but more prestige in terms of SEO and business entity image.

    I have never thought domain matters on reputation.

    Yep, you can't really use org, or edu, as they require further documentation, and as others have said, are not as effective, (most people don't do an org, search).

    But never buy a domain name off someone who brought and is trying to sell it, always mess about with your preferred option til you get it to work.

    And consider making it private or some of your details will be visible in the domain name registry.

    As for the rest, well what can l say, it is like comparing apples to oranges.
