Last month, in a surprise move, Google became Alphabet. Now, this is the Internet’s biggest brand and the largest Internet-focused company. You would assume that their homepage would be Alphabet.com, right? Wrong. Google, or Alphabet, doesn’t think the .com is essential any more and set its global domain at abc.xyz.
A while back, Internet regulator ICANN opened new extensions – beyond the familiar .Com, .Net, .Org and so on. These extensions, called top-level domains (TLD), will allow Internet users to get more personalized and meaningful names, while not being restricted by whatever is available as a .Com.
However, there are still many who believe the .Com address is invaluable and these other TLDs are n0t a good idea.
