    .Tv domain endings.

    I am creating a new site that I am trying to extremely optimize. I have found a wonderful domain that is actual "my search term.TV" and ".CC". I don't know anything about .TV or .CC. What do these endings mean, which would you prefer, and why?
    Thanks.

    I would stay away from those endings. It's best to stick with .com or .net if you really have to. I don't see those endings ever becoming very popular.

    Although search engines don't really care about domain extensions humans do. .com is seen as the best and "odd" ones like .tv and .cc are seen in a different light if only because they are not familiar with it.

    [Your-Search-Term].tv/cc would probably get a really good ranking, but it's not that great if you're trying to establish a brand for your site.

    If your site is about a tv show I would have to disagree

    Indeed, Liverpool FC's official site is a .TV, they used to be .Net but for some reason switched. It's of use if TV is part of your site, as they stream live matches over the web.
