I know this has been done before elsewhere but that was a while ago and the market is changing !
Please vote based on what you think might be the next most popular domain name extension (after the obvious leader .COM)..

Thanks for posting a poll! I voted for .net because it's the 2nd most well established in people's minds I think.
I do feel the .TV could be big in certain markets eventually too but not for awhile.
(Especially with the current cost of registration!)

I also voted .net

What do we think about the up and coming .info ? If you look at some recent sales, it seem to be quite booming:
NewYork.info - $28,000
HMS.info - $20,000

I believe that .US could actually approach .COM popularity at some point.

I certainly hope so ! I have some nice 1 word dictionary .US names for sale !

For me it is the .ca Canadian doman right after .com then comes .net

I went with .org. Runner up .net, then in third...one not on the list .co.uk (I would imagine that if I were in the UK though...then .co.uk would be my choice...hehehe).
I would take .edu, then .gov over .ca

I agree with Ravenhawk.
In Canada anyway... if .com is taken, or even if it's not... dot-ca is snapped up
330,000 dot-ca domain names can't be wrong (March 2003)
dot-net comes right after, IMO

According to Denic.de the order of the Top 10 TLDs as of March 2004 are here (http://www.denic.de/en/domains/statistiken/domainvergleich_tlds/index.html).
I got the .net, .org, .uk in the wrong order. =(doh). But check out the number two ... now that is amazing. Germany (.de) is one of the fastest growing TLD's (http://www.denic.de/en/domains/statistiken/domainentwicklung/index.html)it appears. But has tapered off in the last few months. The entire RIPE Hostcount has jumped (http://www.denic.de/en/domains/statistiken/hostentwicklung/hostcount.html) overall pretty significantly.
