Please advise for which domain name I should go for

Postby MGadAllah » Mon Jul 14, 2008 8:08 pm

Hi,
I am about to launch my new IT dedicated website and would like to know which domain ID fits more. It will include news, reviews, tutorials, and a forum; also will cover operating systems, software, hardware, gaming, networking, internet, programing, database. I am trying to have a comprehensive knowledge base website with no warez of course. So please may you advise for which one of those fits more as I am looking for somethings content's related, professional, original, and easy to be remembered with a good ring or a good sound.
I've been searching for a long time so far and have those so far:
www.itoverdose.com
www.ittuning.com
www.procybers.com
So please advise.
Thanks

Among the two I would not use itoverdose, to me, both are geekish, so it depends on the identity you plan for your website. Geeks and IT goes together pretty well, but it depends on the type of public you're aiming at.

Thanks for your input my friend, but what do you mean by geekish? is it a slang or something a like!? Also do you mean to use ProCybers or ItTuning or ItOverDose !? I'd like to have a professional and a respectaful place my friend but please note that I am not an English native so I'd like to know if the name from English point of view really fits and match or not. I am planning to have a great websites for different audiences and I've already bought professional products to be used with Joomla and phpBB ... and planning to get some revenues from ads. Which one seems more professional from the point of view of a quality website!? Sorry if I can not explain it right but really want to make up my mind and start soon.
Thanks

English is not my native language either, I'm French :twisted:

Geekish is related to geeks.

My point is, ittunning and procybers are to me related to some showing off, you cold be a bit more general, but it really depends on the public you're aiming at.

If you want to make a reference site for all, you may want to use a less connoted domain. I know that there are not so many free .com anymore, but sometime, a word that does not mean nothing, like a brand, can be a good solution.

For example, it's not the type of domain names I'd use for a university website, but, rather for a friendly community where people could share their IT passion.
This being said, I have few knowledge about the public you're targeting, so, the way to go would be to ask this to the people you know that should be interested into your project, it's what matters the most.

Technically, they are good domains, short and easy to recall, it's only a matter of identity of your project.

Thanks for reply, actually it is not a project but it is just my wish to have a good IT dedicated website. So I will start to promote for the website as soon as I get it ready ... so no one or no group specially I have at the moment. This is why I am here asking for an advise from people who are more experienced then me in the web world.
So my point is which domain name of those 3 mentioned above fits and match more for this kind of website?
Please be patient if I do not follow something!?
So what do you think?
I've been searching for the last 10 days about 5 or 6 hours per day and those 3 domains were the best for me but I do not know if they are good or not so I am here for this question if they are good or not!? I mean from the professional point of view for a quality good website!?
Thanks

Then, to me the choice is to be made between procybers and ittuning, I'd personally go for procybers, but it's as well a matter of which one you like the most, they are pretty similar to me ;)

Actually I think procybers give an impression that it is some how professional or branded.
What do you think, isn't it my dear friend!?

Personally, I like itoverdose.com

It has a pop to it. Sounds like a good name and people will remember it.

The other 2 sound a bit mild..... ? :wink:

No problem and trust me, it pays to spend the time to come up with a good name! That's the one thing you shouldn't rush (and I always get feedback from friends and colleagues as well) ;)

That is correct as I've spent a long time picking good names and I've spent some money as well to get those I've picked one from as well, now I've got the .com, .net and .org one for itoverdose.com
I like the help and support I have here.
Thanks and much appreciated :).
