    Hello ! I'm starting a business site and app and on a particular niche and I see that someone have already the following name : Nichebuddy . I'm thinking in creating NichePal , would that bring me any legal issues ? I see the competitor also registered the .com version of nichepal and is not using it, so I'm think in taking the .net domain. Since it's a app, there's no big issue when it comes to domain name.
    Thanks

    Where are you located? its perfectly fine for you to use Niche pal. They are two different words so it doesn't matter. If you registered NicheBuddys or something along the lines of that then it would definitely be an issue because they are almost identical.

    About the domain name, go ahead and use the .net - 98% of the .com domains are already taken unless you get very lucky. They are tons of sites that rank for .org and .net no problem, top companies in website design and other professional industries use .net. The truth is it's the branding that makes the customer feel attached, not the name. Not to say that the name isn't important , just don't stress over it too much.

    I think niche pal is a really good name. I wish you luck!
