I've never been able to decide!
Personally I'd opt for the .net (unless there is strong evidence a hyphenated .com would rank better)
Just don't like hyphens.....
It really does depend on the domain name itself.
1 does it look/read out of place in .net . subject wise ?
2. how well and natural does the word string work with or without the hyphen ?
There are always occasions (very rare admittedly) when a hyphen isn't too much of hindrance in .com
The keywords are in the casino niche and both options cost the same. They're not cheap so want to make sure I get it right. I think the .net would work OK.
Has anyone got any thought on rankings hyphenated .coms as opposed to .net? I was under the understanding that hyphenated ranks the same an unhyphenated.
I think I'd go for the .net , but it'd probably be a close call for me. Just my take on it.
I've decided what I needed was the Hyphented version www.missold.com
Like Marcoose I am in a semilar position I bought two domains one discovercountryname.org and the other discover-countryname.com and I am having problem deciding which to develop.
I am leaning towards the .org and use the .com to point the .org; what do you think?
Never been in that sitaution but I think I would choose the .com
I agree that in this instance the .org would probably serve you better, providing your target audience is a 'Global' one.
.org for global information related sites, works quite well - and geographical names certainly won't suffer from the .org extension.
slightly different ball game if your building it for a predominately UK based audience though (just a perception issue around .org)
Thanks for your feedback.
Yes bailey, my target is global - you never know I might use the .com for the UK.
Separate names with a comma.
