    I've been looking for ages for a hotel type domain.

    As some of you know I've been in the travel business for almost 20 years and the last 5 years have chenged beyond recognision.

    Flight commissions are down to 0% and holidays 4% but there are still big profits to be made from hotels and to a slightly lesser extent car rental.

    Hence the quest for a decent hotel domain.

    Now all the decent hotls domains went ages ago, so something half decent is almost impossible to find.

    What do people think of.....

    Netotel.co.uk?

    Along the lines of Novotel or Sofitel etc. OK it's never going to get any type ins but as a brandable domain, I think it could be ok.

    The only thing that worries me is that it sounds abit like a division of Netto - cheap & nasty

    its difficult to say without a spainish accent! - its the "otel" bit :D

    how do you think they'd say it?

    ni tot el
    or
    net otel
    or
    ni totel
    or
    neto tel

    as you can tell from my other post i spent a lot of time yesterday trawling through travel domains and in 99% cases the combinations i came up with that included the word hotel where taken - i was looking for something like that as well but more of a search engine name rather than brandable.

    if i think of anything i'll let you know

    If you put "hotel" into www.deleting.co.uk there's a couple of interesting ones in and amongst all the guff.

    I'm far too much of a novice at this to even contemplate .nets

    .coms & .co.uk otherwise my credit card stays firmly in my wallet

    Yep

    I've got some hyphens tho' but only a couple

    things like:

    lowcost-airfares.co.uk

    For sale if anyone wants it

    Having said that about .nets - I did go in for juicy.net the other day

    I quite liked the sound of it - didn't catch it though
