Which of these domains should I use for my start-up?

18 replies
I'm starting up a humble business that sells SAAS products to small to medium businesses that help them better build and sell on the Internet.

From the dot com names I have below, which do you like the best and think would be most suitable in this case?

1. dotspire
2. vessu
3. ultraly
4. nexbo
5. ravenl
6. happiware
7. champino
8. zeroless

And why?

I'm asking this is because I'm not a native English speaker and want the opinions of native English speakers since the products will be targeted at them.

Your input would be very much appreciated!

    The best bet is do some keyword research and look for the results where you going to work on website. I mean geographically. Today its really important to take into consideration what sort of product you are working and what is your operational area. Hope it helps

    Dotspire sounds me professional and this is what you need for your business. Be Professional, Dotspire looks like a good professional brand name.

    Also register your domain soon, i don't think it's a good idea to ask openly such questions. Anyone may register the one you've choosen and you'll be regreating it for it later.

    Dotspire is the only one I'd even consider, and I'd only go that route if that's what you're naming your company. Honestly though, I prefer a natural two word domain over a generic one-word. It's what you do with the site that really matters, so pick a company name and roll with it.

    By the way, 2-8 are definitely not going to attract US consumers. They're either silly, horrible English or just don't make sense.

      Dotspire sound good. Gets me a feeling of a big business. Its easy to remember as well. I hope you have already purchased it. Once you have the domain, choose the best hosting provider. Don't fall for hostgator's offers. My suggestion is to go for A small orange hosting. I use them personally and its super good. Do your research. you won't find much negative reviews when compared to other hosting providers.

        Don't use hostgator, use the company I'm pushing in my sig. The company owned by hostgator

        Original question - dotspire is the only one I'd consider. It also lends itself well to a simple logo

    Hi Yang,

    We don’t go through the trouble of using of hosting companies & the likes in setting up websites accept for choosing names for them but we only use weebly which is a completely free website set up service and works just as well as a paid site service.

    And we trust that you will start using this service as well.

    Hello, I think ultraly is a good name. Because its easy to remember and easy to write or think and share with others. You can use it.
    Thanks.

    Dotspire or Champino

    Though normally I would avoid anything connected to internet lingo.... cyber, cyberspace, virtual, e prefix, i prefix, information superhighway, etc.... and dot falls within that. You run the risk of the lingo falling out of favor and you are left with a brand that seems old just by its name. In the case of "dot" it's a reference to the dots in web addresses, but internet access is so much more than addresses here in 2015. Perhaps five years from now Dotspire means about as much as Linespire.

    On the other hand, there isn't much to choose from in this list. Champino is a strong name, but I'm not sure it's a good fit for a software company unless your last name is Champino. I think Dotspire would be stronger for a company having something to do with the printing industry since most prints are a series of tiny dots, but it wouldn't be out of place to see a software company using it either. Like I say though, I personally wouldn't do it for the reason outlined above, but that risk might be only a minor detail to you.

    I like dotspire, but I also like nexbo. Dotspire does sound more professional, though.

    I'd eliminate happiware simply because most people are going to spell it wrong.

    As an example, my company name is "uncorked ventures" about a third of the people we speak with, want to make the second word adventures. Being online, it doesn't seem like that stuff matters, but over the phone and in person it surely does!
