If your business becomes successful, then you may wind up having people trying to feed off your success by stealing your domain name. It is important to remember that ABCCompany.com is not the same address as ABCCompany.net. When you secure your domain name, always get as many associated names as you can. The primary extensions to get are .com, .net, .info, and .org. The .org designation used to be reserved for primarily non-profit or research organizations. But it has been taken over by corporate users, and you need to make sure that your business is protected by buying as many domain extensions as you can. Also be aware of country specific domain names for example .ng for Nigeria, .gh for Ghana.
