    Might as well go for .com if you can get it. I think of other domains like .info as poor cousins that you get if .com is taken.

    Definitely .com. Get .info as well if you want to, for cybersquatting protection purposes. The real value though, will be in the .com.
    HostPeek.com - budget hosts, compared
    CouponsNexus.com - web hosting coupons

    I highly recommend .com website for your personal website. It is more valuable than .info.

    In theory, but distinctions like those really disappeared long ago.

    .com gives more trust to other people. .info is often used for spam sites
