Keep it Relevant and Keep it Simple
.COM is the best extension to go with. If that's not available, your country level extension, or any of the other general extensions will be a good choice for your website.
See our extension comparison page at Domain Extensions. It covers the registration requirements and the cost for each domain extension.
Easy to Remember
For your primary website, keep your domain name short and easy to remember. You'll want to consider how how memorable the name is, how easy the name is to type in, and how your email address would look at the name. You can always register additional domains you've liked and forward them to your main domain.
Additional Extensions / Misspellings
Register additional available extensions as a low cost way to protect your brand. It's a lot cheaper to register the name now than trying to buy it later from someone who has started using it. With the cost of domain names so low, you should register as many names you can think of (within your budget) to help protect yourself against competitors, squatters, and confusion.
