Should I choose domain .com.sg or .sg?

Hi All,

I will buy both domain .com.sg and .sg for my business.

I'm thinking which one should be my primary domain to promote. Do you guys know that People (user/customer) "like" .com.sg or .sg domain? Which one is easier to remember..

Thanks & Regards,
Tom

<.com.sg> sounds more formal and would be my preferred suffix for business website.

.com.sg is more specific for company site usage. On the other hand, .sg is more general that state it is just a Singapore website. Mind to share what your site content is? Forum, blog, portal or something else....

Thanks Doorkeeper and Stevie,

My site is a portal that provide market info and content to users in Singapore.
So I think .com.sg is more appropriate?

I would personally suggest you use .sg as primary domain because portal is widely use and have a lot of information. Sg would be more suitable in this case. Of course, you could redirect .com.sg to your .sg site too. ;-)

I think so, that why I'm quite considerate when choosing domain. .com.sg is more for professional, .sg is more for portal. And my website is a professional portal
