What is the difference between .com, .net, and .org domain?

The domain suffixes are intended to differentiate between various types of organizations on the Internet. Generally, the following rules apply: .com -- businesses and commercial enterprises .net -- network-related organizations and enterprises .org -- charitable or non-profit organizations The domain suffix type itself has no bearing on accessibility on the internet from a technical standpoint, but over time the .com domain type has become the most popular and recognizable on the Internet.
