Top-level Domain Distribution

The vast majority of SHOPLINE stores use a .com domain. This is not surprising since alternate top-level domains have only recently been introduced and there is still a certain cachet associated with .com domains.

That said, you'll find stark regional differences in certain countries. In Australia, .com.au is the most common top-level domain with .com a close second. This is the exception however as .com domains dominate in virtually all other countries.
