For one reason, they may have registered their domain quite a while ago and
spent millions in collateral advertising for that domain and it would be
foolish to try to switch.
Second, the millions of browsers out there support .com by default! You don't
have to type in WWW.NETSOL.COM but just NETSOL and the browser will prepend
WWW and append .COM for you.
