    As for as SEO goes, it doesn't matter. Choose whichever one you think looks better.

    If its 3 or more hyphens, then you take the .info, but 1 or 2 hyphens is fine.

    I won't advise you to go for .info domain... Its quite a controversial domain extension. For some reasons, webmasters believe that websites with .info extensions are spam.

    If I were you, I would have gone for later option.

      Bad advice. Do your own due diligence, or even better listen to what Google/Matt Cutts say on the issue. Domain extensions have no effect in the search results. These topics have been discussed to death here.

      I am doing great with .infos, thank you very much. :p

    From my personal experience, I'd recommend dashes over .info's. IMHO.

    Seriously go with a .net over a .info if you have the choice. Although you can make the .info work if need be.

    Domain extension doesn't matter in SEO, it is just for country specification.

    .net is a classic TLD or top level domain name in my experience trump all.
