My first question is: How soon can I push a domain name at GoDaddy?.

My next question is: Hi,.

I've registered the three major TLDs for a health domain. My hope is to establish it as a source for information on symptoms (potential causes, related conditions, etc.) and diseases/conditions (common symptoms, causes, treatments, etc.).

What I am wondering about is the case for using either .com or .org as the website address. The .net and the loser of those two would be redirected to the in-use domain.

Personally, I like the .org for it's "friendliness" and non-commercial sound. On the other hand, it may appear "cheaper" or as if I were second (or third) in command. I have a feeling that's mainly from being exposed to domaining, though. Many health websites use .org, particularly foundations and specific disease information pages.

I thank you for your input.

Your question was: How soon can I push a domain name at GoDaddy?.

For me, I use .org if I want it to really sound like a non-profit organization (a bit dodgy perhaps), and the name is a bit too brandable for that. perhaps not, could be good..

I'm a big .org supporter, but .com still wins for me 95% of the time...

I think you should use .com because .com is easy for learn and healthy..

Well, .org is not a very bad...

Comment #2

Use .com....way more popular, plus .orgs can look like 'scam sites'..

Comment #3

I'd use .com because most are familiar with .com..

Comment #4

Thank you all for the recommendations (enjoy the rep!). I'll be giving consideration to them and any more that come in. I'm especially interested in the reasoning behind your preference!..

Comment #5

I would use the .com as well as more people know of that extension..

Comment #6

If it would be an informational site try getting .info as well..

Comment #7

I think health-type websites sit exceedingly well on .org domains. However. It really is irrelevant since you are redirecting the other 2 tld's to whatever you choose...

Thank you, recent posters. I've taken what you have to say into consideration.

I've also been considering something a little different than I was from the start. It's along the lines of using the .com for the main site, and using the .org for a separate site that is basically a directory of non-profits categorized by disease type. For example, clicking on Alzheimer's would lead to a page that linked to Alzheimer's NPOs.

The .org would then basically be about name recognition (having a second site). The .net would redirect to the .com.

Any further thoughts on this idea? weblord:.

Thank you for the advice on the .info. It is a good idea, although if I did that it would mainly be to protect the name, as it would only be a redirect and I wouldn't expect type-ins. For $1 now and $7 a year in the future, it's probably worth it...
