Yes. What advantages are there for being registered as a ".org" not a ".com"?

.org is meant for not for profit organisations and .com is meant for commercial enterprises. However this has not been closely monitored for the top level .com and .org domains so there is not much practical difference between them except that more .org domains are still available. There is more control over .edu and .gov tlds, as you might expect.

Inside the .au domain, much more stringent monitoring has meant .org.au and .com.au are more meaningful in practice. However this has also meant that these domains are more expensive than .com and .org

I've recently found that an error message comes up-my computer can't find the website. But when I look for "chesschat" on google and get onto chesschat that way it's fine. :confused:
