Re: .COM or .SG?

I prefer .com most of the times. Even for my own Singapore based company, I register a .com name.

Re: .COM or .SG?

seem like most of people do prefer .com. But if use .SG in to target Singapore, it will take advantages in local SEO. It show the your company and your business is in Singapore and your market is also for Singapore as well.
For .com is common use and it use to target global which more flexible and it cheaper.

Re: .COM or .SG?

Don't forget that if you climb the ladder on .com SEOs your Singapore reach will increase automatically. Another advantage of having a .com website is that you will not need to worry about Bing or Yahoo search (at least, that's the current situation). Good luck!!!

Yes that lot of people do not like to purchase two domain like .sg and .com.my to target it while they use the same website and content.
But use .SG in Singapore do make sound that your company are from Singapore,and use .com.my to target Malaysia so malaysia citizen will feel you are from Malaysia as well.

Re: .COM or .SG?

sry peeps, I just know how to comment on SEO perspective

Just to add some points that may be useful for you
If your domain.com already ranked well in search result, and you add my.domain.com, your my.domain.com will be ranked in no time..

but if you own domain.sg, then you want to expand to malaysia and you purchase another domain domain.my ... since they are both totally different domain in search engine's eyes, you need more $$ and time to rank your domain.my, it is like starting all over again...

So not so cost effective..
