Back in 2007 I purchased a
.net domain for a certain company because the
.com was taken.
The website grew, and I consider it to have a good amount of visits, keeping in mind its a business page, and not eCommerce. It also attracts a lot of customers, and the owners are very happy with it.
A couple of years ago, I was also able to purchase the
.com domain, and I never really did anything with it but forward to the
.com domains were supposed to be used for commercial sites, but are also the most used in the world for any other type of site, while
.net were supposed to be for networks. We know a lot of people, including myself don't always follow this.
Now, in my opinion, I always thought of websites ending in
.com as more trustworthy. I'm not sure why, if because they were always more widely used, or if because, as in my case,
.net were usually the sites who could not get the
My questions are:
A - Do people share this vision of
.com being more trustworthy?
B - Should I think about moving to the different domain name?
C - And if so, what proper steps should I take to make sure I don't lose any rankings?
