    Default Website Domain Opinions

    Hello all. Just looking to solicit some opinions on domain name choice. A good friend of mine and I have decided to collaborate (both on production and djing) and have found a name that we both like quite a bit. Unfortunately, the domain is already owned (though not actively utilized), although it may become available later this year. In the meantime the following are available:

    the______________.com; ____________music.com; and _____________djs.com

    I am looking for anyone's thoughts on the above, and any reasoning why you might lean towards any one name or the other. Of course, I realize that not releasing the potential name certainly may limit the extent of opinions i can expect to receive in response to this post, but until these things are finalized we would prefer not to announce the potential name. Thanks for any input-I look forward to reading the responses.

    Is it taken in .net/.org as well as .com?

    How about .us or .info? It's usually more sensible to go for the same domain with a different extension; it makes ICANN disputes easier to go for in the future.

    If your willing to spend a bit more coin you can register your domain in Djibouti. the extension will be

    something.dj

    It's $100US a year though.

    There are heaps of different extensions so you can be more creative, but they all have different pricing structures..

    One problem with domain names outside .com .org and .net is that they are almost impossible to get any search engine rank for regardless of the amount of SEO work that goes into it (check some of the SEO forums).

    .dj would be especially hard as its a regionalized domain which google takes into consideration for local listings, but will virtually make it non existant to other countries.

    Just something else to consider.

    Also check out godaddy auctions, expired domains and domains bot ... you may find something very interesting.

    With your suggestions above I'd probably register _______music.com as its not tied to either production or djing specifically (and subdomains could be used for each task).

    However would greatly depend on the first word ... e.g. Greatmusic.com is fine but productionanddjingmusic.com looks crappy.
