Is ffiver.com a good name

    I want to know if using ffiver.com is a good idea for someone to add a clone of fiverr. can this get confusing or is this acceptable?

    I think you would be playing off the idea that people may not remember how Fiverr is spelled. It might get you some traffic but I think when most people wind up at your site instead of Fiverr, they'll try a new spelling and hope to get it right. I think the best thing you can do is come up with your own idea for a site like Fiverr, but don't just go out and copy their idea completely. They've made it big with that idea and you'll be coming into the market as an unknown website. People will continue going to Fiverr unless you can give them something Fiverr doesn't.

    I don't think it will bring any success.
    If someone is looking for fiverr, they wont stop untill they have reached it.
    also, I fon't think many will misspell Fiverr to FFiver.

    You problably will not have much success in getting people to the site based on the name unless you spend alot of time and money marketing that name to create brand and name recognition. However, if you are committed to the name you will need to create traffic to the site off other key words that you link to the site.

    You'll probably end up getting the name taken away by Fiverr if you get any success bringing people to it. Since you're cloning their site and their name which is trademarked, you'll have little defense. It'd be like trying to sell Cola Coca in a red curvy bottle right next to the real thing at the supermarket. Since it looks like you're already doing the site at that domain name, I'd be ready with a backup domain for when it all comes crashing down.

    I don't think you would have much success with it. Probably only good to drive traffic when someone misspelling but that's it.. I for once never stay at those similiar sites to the site I go to.. You may have better luck creating something more useful and original. GL!

    Fiverr can not do anything because they do not have any trademark or IP protection in the UK or even outside the US.

    Well maybe you'd be better off getting your own trademark. Who knows you could end up
    being even more popular than them.

    unless it looks like a proffesional website noone will stay there. People have heard of fiverr as a proffesional website and if they are typing it into the address bar, they want to find fiverr.com specificly
