    XYZ = my ideal company name for branding.

    XYZ.com is taken
    XYZInc.com is taken.
    (both have established websites and current companies on them).

    I want to add something shorter to the domain so that the .com is available. And something that makes it sound professional (Marketing, Consulting, Incorporated; all seem kind of long). This is for a marketing/consulting company. I don't really want dashes.

    Any suggestions?


    Thanks in advance. ~englandrm

    That's not your ideal name for branding if there are already two established companies. An ideal branding name is one that isn't being used by others, so when someone searches for your brand, they only find you. Going with this name, you'll only be helping advertise for them.

    I know it sucks when you think you find the name you want, only to have it taken, but it would be much better for you to use something more unique.

    I agree ..... otherwise you could localize by adding a city / state name to domain if your biz allows
