What is a .com domain?
When the Domain Name System was implemented, .com was one of the first generic top level domains (gTLDs) created, and has since become the most popular. The .com domain meaning is simple: originally the .com suffix stood for "commercial", and was used by and to identify businesses online. The idea behind this was that TLDs would be used to categorize websites for users; this can also be seen in other purpose-designed TLDs such as .gov (government) .edu (education) and .org (organization), all of which are still in use today.
However, as the internet became a global phenomenon, the .com domain meaning gradually lost its commercial significance and became the standard domain used by individuals and organizations everywhere—including many government departments and educational facilities. As a result, it has gained a reputation as one of the most respectable and trustworthy TLDs available. So, while the .com domain definition may no longer imply a commercial entity, it does significantly enhance the profile of a website.
