    Hey,
    SEMrush
    I hope you're having a good day. I have a question. I am planning on opening up a web design agency. I currently own 2 domain names. They are not hosted yet. The domain names are: lotofwork.com and webdesign.to. I am planning to invest in an advertising campaign via Google Adwords/Facebook Ads.

    In terms of SEO, and attracting as many customers internationally as possible, which one of the two domain names would be the better choice?

    Thank you.

    Best Wishes,
    Alan

    lotofwork.com will be good choice , because .com is very efficient in terms of SEO.
    And if you are thinking of advertising campaign via Google Adwords/ Facebooks Ads then its a great idea but you must follow twitter and Pinterest.

    I would pick the webdesign.to if I would have to pick only of these two. Because webdesign.to shows the topic of the website while LotOfWork sounds like a website which is selling some sort of courses "how to work at home" or just "complaining". I would never guess that LotOfWork have something in common with web design, unless you know how to play with this theme "LotOfWork" and use it as you unique brand

    For webdesign.to, I like the "WebDesign" but not the "to" as it is Country Top-Level Domain. I did a quick check on internet and .to TLD is for Tonga. It is good if you only focus on Tonga but not internationally.

    For lotofwork.com, it is easier to be remembered. I would choose lotofwork.com.

    There are pros and cons for both. As people have said, having Webdesign in your domain name will help a lot, but it also isn't ideal having .to
    My personal opinion would be to get a .com name. Hope that helps

    .com domain has a lot of impact on SEO. So, i would suggest you to select this one: lotofwork.com

    It will help you a lot is SEO of your website. A top level domain get lots of benefits in search engines. For best ranking results, avoid uncommon domains.

    From an SEO perspective, any gTLD will perform in the same way – whether that's .COM, .NET, .ORG, or .to Google has been openly saying this till date. But it is entirely your call and what will click with your customers i.e. which domain name will be better. I would go with Webdesign as it has less vagueness

    In my opinion, alotofwork will be better for seo and global presence since it is .com, webdesign would be better for blogging and link exchange purposes and it would be like a refresher for you to do some experiments on the website too.
    SEO exposure is important if you want to rank your website plus alotofwork sounds very modern and cool.

    Not even idiot would use stupid not related to design "lot of work" to run search
    for "web design" services. SEO based on keywords and not .TLD only moron would
    claim make any difference for algos, but "web design" would 100%

    Are you aware that this is a professional forum for current and aspiring web professionals? Your reply using "idiot ... stupid ... moron" is not consistent with the goals of this forum.

    On the other hand people claiming that .com gives an SEO advantage and don't see the negativity implied in "lot of work" could deserve those monikers ;)

    Watch enough British TV and you'll find someone asking for a quote and the tradesman going "oooh, that'll be a lot of work, it'll cost you". Aside from the obvious advantages of webdesign.to that would be my main problem with that domain name.

    You do know your name isn't actually fastreplies and that your username is shown beside your post, right?

    If you are from the city of Tonga or the target personas are from that location then webdesign.to is good otherwise, .com for a website for all audience on the internet is preferable.

    the city of Tonga?

    It's well established that people use Tonga and Tuvalu's domains without any link to the countries. I wouldn't let the .to put you off.
