Hello. I need to come up with a brand name for my product. I like one name, let's say the name is Word1Word2 . There's only one problem, the .com is taken, there's nothing there and it redirects to another parked domain. Other than that, I saw no trace of Word1Word2 combination on Google, (except a nickname on some forum, but that's insignificant). I have no idea how much would I need to pay for the .com and I have little money, like $200 for everything (but even $30 would suffice if everything goes nice). I plan to just buy .net, so it would be word1word2.net and in case my product was successful, I would buy .com later and set a redirect to .net. Same for my product website itself, myproduct.com was taken, so I bought myproduct.net. What do you think, is it a good plan? There's another option, I could register word1-word2.com, but I don't like domains with - in them. Btw. What about trademarks, is it like if I'm the first to use a name, then I automatically own it and can win in case someone wants to use that exact name in the future. For example if I start using the name, and at some point later someone decide to register the name as a trademark, could he win? I live in EU. Also I saw something strange, there are 2 websites in the same niche, one named word3-word4.com, the other word3word4.com, same niche, almost same name and they somehow coexist. How is it possible?
