Hi lovely WAers, I appreciate your opinion on choosing a domain name.

When purchasing a two word domain and the first word ends in the same letter as the second word starts with, is it better to keep both letters or omit one of them?

ex: green net (would you go for greenet or greennet). This is just an example not the actual domain name I´m after.

Thanks & Happy Weekend. Marisa

greenet .com
Estimated Value: $8,189 (USD)
greennet .com
Estimated Value: $11,021 (USD)

None of these domains are available, however, it is always more pricey having grammatically correct English words, if also the intention you want to sell website / blog at a future date.

The older the domain the better for Google.

In this example, I would go with " Greenet" it is reader friendly.
My bro-in-law has a printing company in the UK and he used his surname 'Tank' as company. His company name is "Printank' not PrintTank.

I would eliminate one of the n’s, thus “greenet”
Just a personal preference, though. Either way should be ok.

I see your dilemma. Have you tried a website called Lean Domain Search? You can put in any name you want and it will give you a ton of different (available) variations for a domain name. If you click on the green box, it will tell you if the Twitter account is available too.

If you then want to host at WA, you can buy the domain here.

"Lean domain search" is a good resource.

Many thanks. I just checked Lean Domain and I have compared it with Namemesh and the results are very similar.

Namemesh lists them into different categories: Common, Fun, SEO etc and Lean Domain is good as it tells you if the domain name is good or available as your Twitter name.

I would keep both as in "Green Net"

You may head to http://namemesh.com try find a suitable .com domain or try go daddy valuation tool to find a memorable name.

Hi Abie, thanks for that. I prefer to keep both as it is grammatically correct but not sure what´s best for SEO and google.

The domain is no longer so much important for seo purposes vs quality rich content and choice of good keywords, however I would go with grammatically correct English words. It is certainly more professional.
