  3. What kind of domain name should I choose ?

    We recommend that you choose for your business a name related to the theme of your site or a leading product. As for the domain name endings, since all the domain endings will apply around the world, the decision should be based on marketing considerations. The co.il ending is identified as an Israeli ending. The Israeli domain name ending could be a good alternative for generic names that are already taken. The .org, .com and .net endings are suitable for businesses or organizations with International operations. The .info and .biz endings are suitable for a Non-national specific identity site, and can be used as an alternative for already registered domains.
