Posted by Support on 20 December 2007 02:56 AM
COM, .NET and .ORG Domain Names:
.COM - to be used for commercial and personal sites
.NET - recommended for companies involved in Internet infrastructure
.ORG - recommended for not-for-profit organizations Use only letters, numbers, or hyphen ("-") Cannot begin or end with a hyphen Must have less than 63 characters, not including .COM, .NET and .ORG * .com, .net and .org domain names exceeding a total of 26 characters are supported by most web browsers. However, certain web browsers, email programs and other Internet related applications may not support domain names over 26 characters. Most other domains are similar to the rules above.

All other domain name TLD(extensions) should follow the same character limits.
