Which domain is better?

Discussion in 'General Business' started by Nudge, Oct 19, 2008.

    Hello, I recently started a forum called SonyLovers.com. I have it all set up and ready to go, but after thinking about it, a more direct name would have been better. I found that talksony.com was available and I took it. Now, which domain should I pursue? Does it make a difference in business?

    Which domain should I choose?

    Thanks.

    I think talksony.com fits better to a forum rather than sonylovers.com.
    You know it doen't seem to be a forum name, sonylovers.com.

    You should go with talksony.com. It's shorter and fits great. ;)

    too risky to use a domain name with a registered trademark in it, knowing that Sony can pull the plug on it at any given moment...

    talksony is better since you are doing forum, not the website.
    Besides, talksony is shorter

    Talksony is better for a forum name. Also watch out for using the trademarked name in your domain. It could cause problems later.

    I ended up using talksony.com, but I did not close SonyLovers just yet, I want to see how things go...

    Also, I thought about the trademark thing, do you think I should have a problem? I've seen sites that are called like PlaystationForums or something like that.
