    Hi guys, I really don't know which domain is better for magazine site... For example would you choose womenmagazine.com or womenmag.com? And for those who will go check, don't bother, both are taken...

    Thank you

    and sorry if I wasn't clear enough, what bothers me is "magazine" or "mag"?

    Thanks

    You always have to choose a short domain for getting good results.
    I'll suggest you womenmag for getting good and reliable results.
    You can try other attractive domain for more positive results.

    I prefer the mag option. It looks more pleasing. But however maybe you need to check both of the domains have history. If one of them have bad history then you take the other one.

    Shorter = better and more targeted = better.

    So in some cases mag would be better because people like short domains and it's easier to remember those.

    On the other side magazine is more professional and it's describing your site as a magazine (professional one).

    I would base it on the type of content you'll be putting on. A finance/business site seems to lend itself more to the full "magazine", while something more trendy/fashion oriented would be good for "mag". "Mag" is kind of casual, so just think about it in that sense.

    Either one is good. Both are good enough to promote and make a good brand.

    I would consider womenmagazine.com before the other. Just sounds and looks better to me. But I could be wrong.

    Doesn't really matter which one you choose, if your site is good they will remember either way.

    I like womenmag more. It sounds better and cozy to me. I saw some magazine websites that use just mag.

    If I were you, then I would have taken both. But build website on mag & redirect the magazine to mag.

    womenmag for sure.

    short, sweet, and a touch of playfulness that likely is what you are going for
