Business name and Domain name

Recommended Posts



Still looking at a name for my new start up and would like to know peoples thoughts on a domain I have purchased.


May or may not use it but building a website on a sub domain of the same.


The domain is (virtualwebservices.co.uk)


I really preferred the .com which is available but over $2k kerching!


I envisage most clients of mine will be UK based like me but I think maybe the .com would help me get non UK clients.


So my questions are


1. Do you think a .co.uk domain will make it difficult to get clients from outside of the UK?


2. Is the name and domain a good fit for my new business or a little boring!? (My niche will include social media marketing, e-mail marketing, making wordpress sites and seo services)


Would be great to get some feedback!


Many Thanks Dan

The domain Virtual Web Services definitely targets exactly what you are doing so think it is a good choice. As for the UK extension instead of .com if you market is North America you may want to find a .com although those are really hard to find for any business nowadays. There could be an advantage having a UK extension in that people in North American may like the fact that their website maintenance and social media stuff is done while they sleep (being on different timezones you could market to your advantage). Like in your sales copy it could say something about the timezone difference and how we get your work done during the hours you sleep LOL! Just brainstorming here. I'm not sure the exchange rate of UK/USD but if you are lower than again it would be advantage for Americans to buy from you too in UK dollars as it might be cheaper for them?
