Nothing too big here, I was just wondering why you guys(CSB-Digital) decided to call the site "Fxhome.com" why not "FXHome.co.uk", being that you guys are from the UK?

I think because ".com" is more global and they are a global company.

Also they can afford ".com"

Because .com is international and we are an international company. People from other parts of the world might not remember .co.uk but everyone knows .com.

I know...the fxhometicker went crazy and every like 2 seconds a new post showed up.

And now at least 3 people have deleted their posts.

There a lots.

when .it was released, I went through a frenzy of trying to buy many of the obvious names... but my thoughts took too long and I lost out on some great ideas!

This is a list of just the country code Top Level Domains, it doesn't take into account .biz, .com, .org, .info

http://www.iana.org/cctld/cctld-whois.htm

URL above makes it pretty clear. The simple answer is several hundred.

Additionally every .com-style TLD has a permutation for every country in that list, similarly .biz and .org.

So in conclusion, closer to a few thousand!
