Choosing a web address

Post by vedahanks on Tue Dec 03, 2013 8:19 am

justaddglitter.com is taken -- someone started a wordpress blog there in April but never added any actual entries.

So I'm torn between justaddglitter.net or justaddglitternj.com

just-add-glitter.com is available but that seems to tricky/complicated.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for the suggestions! My business name will be Just Add Glitter so I was trying to stay close to that.

I think "glitter fabulous" or even "glittered up" would still tie into your business name.

I'd strongly advise against misspelling your web address just to get the name. You'll forever be clarifying it. Also, did you verify your business name isn't already registered (not the website, the actual business name)? If it is, you might want to pick a different one.

Of the choices you mentioned - go with justaddglitter.net BUT I think not having the .com is a huge disadvantage (especially if someone else has it) so you may want to consider changing the name of your company if you havenít already purchased business cards, business license, etc.

Just Add Glitter as a business name is not taken in the state of NJ. I polled 45 moms in my area and 44 said to go with justaddglitternj.com and only 1 voted for justaddglitter.net!

I had bumblebeesfl.com and had many issues with people trying to find it or what not. Why? I don't know. But I recently changed to bumblebeesfacepainting.com and I've had a better response ever since.

You need to go with something simple that everyone can remember when they type it in a web search, it should not be confusing as in misspelled words. Gilded Cat is right. I bought the .com, .net and .org so no one else could have it just in case there was someone trying to use the name with the .net or org. I liked many names that were already in use but I chose to wait and re-think my name for a long time. I am so glad that I did.

I do hope that these 45 moms that you polled owns a business and are not just moms. Do they have any business or marketing experience?
