net (network) is a generic top-level domain (gTLD) used on the Internet's Domain Name System. The .net gTLD is currently operated by VeriSign. Registrations are processed via accredited registrars and internationalized domain names are also accepted.
.net is one of the original top-level domains created in January 1985. It was initially intended for use by network oriented entities such as Internet service providers. Currently, there are no formal restrictions on who can register a .net domain name. Therefore, while still popular with network operators, it is often treated as a second .com.
Since .NET enables you to protect your business online, a domain with .NET makes your web address unique and easy to memorize. A .NET extension is doing much more, helping you reach and communicate with the audience in the world.
