Does it matter which kind of domain I register (.com, .net or .org)?

You can register any kind of domain. All of these are "unrestricted" Top-Level Domains, which means they have no restrictions on who can register what domain and for what purpose.

In terms of availability, it is hardest to find good domains in .com, then .net, then .org because they are the most common and most popular. Other top-level domains may actually be more appropriate for your site though. For instance, if your site is about a television show, characters, or actors, a .tv domain would work great. A site with info about a country or where product sales are limited to a particular country may do well with that country's top-level domain. Use your imagination and try to think like your users. Consult SEO (Search Engine Optimization) sites and forums as well concerning this.
