My first question is: Why is it cheaper to buy a domain name at godaddy vs. register.com? is there a catch?.

My next question is: Hi.

I am planning to start a personal blog. I am in a dilemna regarding the kind of HostGator that I want.

So here are the options that I have tried:.

1. FirstLast.com is my fav choice but it is registered by someone else. He is not replying to emails (So I guess this is kind of ruled out).

2. I dont like .net and .org. If I had to go for these two extensions then I would prefer only FIRSTNAME.net/.org. BOth of them are also unavailable.

3. First-Last.com is available but somehow I dont like the dash in between.

4. I can see the initials of my name available in some obscure TLD. "LL.TLD" But I dont want to go with that because I read somewhere that these registries can stop two letter domains any time they want (LA registry did that I think).

Any opinions on what other kind of a HostGator would be suitable? Any suggestions/ideas/anything is welcome.

Thanks..

Your question was: Why is it cheaper to buy a domain name at godaddy vs. register.com? is there a catch?.

Lastname.net/org : Gone (.net is regged since 2000 and I doubt the owner is in a mood to let it go: Min bid at sedo 1500Euro! ).

Firstletterfirstname+lastname.com : Gone. Already contacted the ownerNot willing to sell cos this is his FirstletterFristname+Lastname..

I've had the same issue recently. I suggest going with your cc such as .us or .co.uk. so.

FIRSTNAME.us/co.uk/other cc.

If that's taken. Maybe.

FIRSTNAMELASTNAME.com?..

Well I was going to suggest one I have - MyBlogs.org, but I see youdon't like .org's so... back to the drawing board...

Comment #3

How about adding a keyword?.

E.g..

Lastname+'online'.com.

Lastname+'web'.com.

Lastname+'blog'.com..
