What does the .com extension mean in web design?
In the past, when the World Wide Web was first established in 1989, web sites were categorized into different top level domain addresses. .com was one of those addresses that let visitors know that their web site had some kind of "commercial" intent - an intent to make some kind of profit through the Internet.
Today, a .com domain name doesn't mean your web site has to have commercial intent. Restrictions have been dropped and Internet registration authorities basically allow almost anyone to have a .com address. A .com address is no different, technically, from the other top level domain address such as .org or .biz etc. As the World Wide Web continues to grow and expand, new domain names (like .info and .shop) will continue to crop up to respond to that growth as current domain addresses run out.
