How to tell Who you are Linking to?
The extension at the end of each web site gives a clue as to who you are going to connect with. Below are some of the more common extensions found on web sites. However, this is not an absolute. For example, many state and local elected officials have web sites at universities (.edu), or a trade association (.org) may provide information for its members which are companies.
|.org||Trade associations, non-profit organization, etc.
(also some state government agencies)
|.com||Companies, commercial establishments, etc.
|.gov||U.S. federal government
(also a small number of state government agencies)
|.edu||Colleges and Universities
(not grammar schools or high schools)
|.state.??.us||State governments in the U.S.
(where "??" is the state abbreviation. CT for Connecticut.)
|.net||Internet networks and service providers
(SNET, AT&T, etc.)
