Hello! I'm new here... looking forward to trying this out. My question...

I have a client wanting to use a super random International domain extension in order to secure the domain name he wants. Pros/Cons of doing this from your experience? Lots come to my mind of course including potential customers trying to search and running into the already taken .com, .net, .us, etc versions of the domain that are already taken. I'm also a little concerned it simply doesn't feel legitimate if we have zero association with the country represented in the extension... although I'm not sure how many internet users even know the meanings behind the assortment of extensions now available. TIA

    I would encourage your client to keep searching for a .com domain. I know it's easier said than done, but what you just described will not convey too much professionalism.

    There is nothing new to have domain with a dozen of .TLDs but what makes them different is never failing to make your site unique, your site's content, language, design etc.

    I wouldn't worry about TLD
