Your question was: Anyone else been the victim of godaddy?.
Depends on what is your subject..
Generally .org has higher value, but in many cases info would be better.
Is your name more like SaveOurTrees (.org) or NewYorkFlights (info)?.
Also I presume .net is unavailable too? because if it's free it's better than .org or .info..
Why not buy the .net instead?.
Or is the .net taken as well?..
Depends on what you're going to do...resale - .org, development of a non-non-profit - .info.
Edit - if it's good, why even ask, infos are .99 - get both...
In that order, if it's for development, get them all...
.org if it's an organisation or something like that.
.info if it's not.
If you're serious about your project, get both.
I'm partial to .org, even over .net. It gives your site credibility and is most likely easier to remember than .info, which many Internet users may not be familiar with.Org looks like you're intentionally buying the name not because the .com was taken while .net and .info essentially scream, "The .com was taken so I went with a cheapened extension."..
I usually prefer .info over .org, as mostly I buy domains for quick development or resale..
.info is easier to sell than an .org, but you get more profit when you sell .org..
It depends on the name. My favorite is .org over .net or .info, but there are times when I would prefer the .net or .info...
.org...or just get both, first year for .info is just $0.99...
I know for my parking experience and checking referral logs that more people will type-in .org than .net.
.com is king but between .net and .org, .org is better type-in and people have more "trust" in an .org. It almost seems that they will go "anti-establishment" and use the .org.
.org has higher resale value also.
Just my 2 cents...
Nothing screams "We're late for the dance" like .net, and .info fits if the site is an "informative" site. For resale, .org wins in my book.
