net or .net

the net in .net means network

(pronounced: dot-net)

One of several top-level domains primarily assigned to the URLs of American companies that work with computer networks (for example, is the URL for the ISP Earthlink). Other domains include .ac, .com, .gov, .mil, .mil, .org, and a long list of country codes.

For a list of other suffixes, see the definition for domain name. FYI: As of early 2007, there were about 9.1 million ".net" names in use ;-) Internet trivia!
