    I am developing a general pet related site and am still trying to obtain a domain name for it.

    I have been offered several .co.uk domains for around £1000 and several .com domains for alot more. These names are all 2 word names, things like petguide.co.uk or petheads.com

    I am fairly new to this domain business and really just want to get a good domain name for my site. I am not sure if I should buy a .co.uk name if I am unable to obtain the .com

    I have a maximum of about £2000 to buy the domain name(s) with but would prefer not to pay so much.

    I would appreciate any advice on a suitable domain name and what to consider with regards having the .co.uk and .com etc

    Many thanks in advance

    Paul

    Are you selling worldwde or will your market be primarily the UK, if so a .co.uk would be fine and define your business nicely. £1k sounds a fair price for a good descriptive domain.

    Thanks scot

    I guess the general pet info could be useful to anyone worldwide but I guess I will limit alot of the content geographically to the UK (does that seem a sensible idea or is it better to aim worldwide?)

    Any advice on a generic pet site name would be appreciated

    Thanks

    Paul

    imo

    How much did you pay for them?

    They are not bad...

    It will depend a lot on the work you put into your website. The domainnames are really ok for this reason.

    Regards

    Martin;)
