Hi all,

I intend to develop a travel site.
I own 2 domains:
tourismbay.com
holidayaz.com

Wich sounds more catchy? I really apreciate your effort.
Thank you

    I vote for the first one. The second one doesn't "do it" for me.

    Unless you are selling holidays in Arizona, the first one hands down.

    If you are going to start using WordPress you may want to give my site Beginning WordPress a look. The How To Do WordPress Guide will walk you through from registering your domain to installing plugins.

        I also voted for Tourismbay, it just sounds like a broader range of travel choices.

        Ooh, I see ...

        I also took it as referring to Arizona (and I'm not even American).

        So I vote for the other one ...

    Aren't the best domains ones that include your main keyword?, I wouldn't choose either, from what I have learned from many training courses, but if you want to use one -I agree that the first one is best, as I also thought the second one was referring to Arizona.

      Yes, you are right is good to have an EMD but being a travel site, with wide range is pretty difficult. Anyhow thanks a lot for suggestion and vote.

      It depends what type of site is being built. If it's a run-of-the-mill nche site, then a keyword domain could help.

      If building a branded authority site is the goal, then keep in mind that Yahoo, Google, and eBay were not keywords, and they seem to be doing okay.

      I vote for TourismBay. I had to re-read the other one to get what it said. I sort of saw it as Holid-a-yaz.

      All the best,
      Michael

    TourismBay all the way. Piggy backs on eBay and people that read the name will know it is a site that sells tourism packages (I hope thats what it is).

    tourismbay reminds me of pirate bay. Don't like it. However - it's also resembles an ebay for tourism, so other's might have very different feelings about it from mine.

      If those are the only two choices, I pick the first one. Truth be told, though, neither does much to trip my trigger...

    I would go with tourismbay. It's easier to remember and pronounce than 'holidayaz'. I had no idea what a-z represented until you explained it.
