help with web-site address
posted by saraindc to Work & Money (7 answers total)
So I purchased a domain to use for a business I might be starting, to use for e-mail/web-site
I purchased it with a '.us' extension instead of '.com' because the latter was pricey while the former wasn't, although both were available.
I figured the '.us' wouldn't hurt me much since I'd be working with people in other countries, and they would like to be reminded of my US identity, makes business a bit smoother for me.
But now I'm worried because I realized that people can accidentally type in the .COM site and realize that I didn't want to shell out the $1300 to get it and the business I'm trying to launch works on high-profile stuff where being uber-professional and 'shiny' matters.
Does this matter? I really like my business name and would like to stick with it. So using another web-site address isn't the option I'm looking for. Do I need to buy the domain that costs 1300?
