Laser Engraving domains?

by Cognition on Wed Apr 15, 2009 4:37 pm

It looks like techtats.com, techtats.net and techtats.org are up for sale on sedo.com. I've seen a lot of variations on that name but that one's short and sweet. I was kind of kicking around the idea of making an offer for it, the .com would make a great site for a laser engraving business and the other domains I could do a forum and photo gallery on.

How did you guys come up with your domain names?

I'm a graphic designer by trade, and I found a great deal on a couple months old Epilog laser that I might pick up. I live by a university, was thinking of looking into some retail space around campus.

With all the domain name "squatting" that has gone on, it is interesting to note that the really successful companies don't seem to be the ones with "relevant" domain names. Google.com and yahoo.com have both blown away "search.com", for example...

Yeah, I'm looking at retail space near the university here. I have a line on a banned Epilog laser that's only a couple months old.

Honestly, you're probably better off making up your own name(s), unless those sell for REAL banned. The data on your website and links you acquire from people pointing at you are what drive searches... And anybody that knows who you are (such as people visiting the retail location, or viewing ads) will go to the name regardless of what it is. If you already had the name in use, it might make some sense, but since this is a new venture... Just pick a new (and your own) name.

Although, making something easy to type and/or read is also a good idea to keep in mind.
I think I am, therefore I am... I think.
