.ora .dbf extension

What is difference between .ora and .dbf extension of data file?should i create a data file with .dbf extension?
If I trying to creat a data file using OEM, .ora is the default extension. Why?

The most common naming conventions that I have run across is:
.dbf for database
.log for redo logs
.ctl for control files
.arc for archive logs
.ora for init
.ora file
