    Hello friends,

    As title specifies, I need your votes between these two.

    I have 2 domains SEOHOSTING.ASIA and SEOHOSTING.WS, which should I start with?

    And, yes please let me know the cause so I can be convinced to use one of them as the main domain. Another domain either I will be parking on the same website.

    Thanks,
    Vijay

    Personally, I don't like any of the extentions but out of the 2, I would probably go with the .ws

    I don't like both TLDs but if I had to pick one, I would go with .ws

    Both looks good to me.

    but that depends on your target audience.

    use .asia only if your target in asia or else use .ws

    Thanks for your votes!

    My target audience is not from a specific continent. As all other extensions are already registered, I want to use one of these as main. Need more opinion :)

    Thanks,
    Vijay

    Listen- do a simple trademark search after you see that seohosting.com is already reg'd and in use by hostgator.

    Thanks a lot for your effort.

    Can you please elaborate it, whether I can use these words or not for a hosting site?

    Thanks

    it's up to you, but i would not use them like you have proposed because your traffic would go to the .com, and when you are successful with your serps, hostgator will come and bite you in the rear end for tm infringement.

    to me it is best to minimize risk considering that business is already risky enough when you have no tm issues or traffic leak issues.

    would prefer seohosting.ws since it can also double for "web sites" in the context of your domain.

    I choose .asia rather than .ws, IF my targeted audience is mostly from asia.
