Why Buy a .com Domain?
Recognition: The .com domain is the most dominant and trusted domain extension on the internet. More often than not, it’s the default choice for companies, creators and individuals who want to build a website.

- Memorability: People tend to associate company websites with a .com extension, making it easier for them to remember your website’s address. Many online users type the company name plus the .com extension directly in the URL bar instead of looking for the company website in search engines first.
Global Appeal: it is widely known that the .com domain is not tied to any specific country or region, making it a perfect choice for companies and brands that target global audience.
Availability: Despite the popularity of the .com domain extension, we still have several memorable and appealing domain names available with that TLD. All that is required from potential registrants is to be creative and try to use even a combination of two words. The first word of the domain can be the brand name or location of the business and the second word can be a keyword associated with the business. For instance, a website based in Kenya that reviews electronic gadgets can register, Kenyagadgets.com. Where necessary, adding a hyphen can also increase the chances of the .com availability.

Are .com domains better for SEO?
Not really, Google ranks well-known brands better than the rest because they have older domains that have accumulated tonnes of backlinks and they also tend to follow the search engine guidelines. Google has stated that they don't have preference for any TLD extension. However, the general audience preference still matters when deciding which domain name extension to buy. It's a general rule of thumb to buy .com domain names for a website meant for the global audience and a ccTLD domain for a website with a narrow geographical target (city, country, etc)
