CNET GLOSSARY: Terms for the techie
The most widely used of several common domain name extensions (including .edu, .gov, .net, and .org). The .com extension was originally intended to indicate a Web site created for business or commercial purposes (such as www.cnet.com), but creators of personal sites generally opt for .com as well.
