    Looking for opinions on naming my .com business. I am about to file legal paperwork and need to decide.

    Which would be a better format?

    "My Business Name"

    - or -

    "My Business Name .com"

    - or -

    "MyBusinessName.com"

    Thank you.

    Prior to posting this thread, I was heavily favoring this format - "My Business Name .com".

    However, after just now noticing the format used by "The Admin Zone", I am favoring this format - "My Business Name".

    OK, after having a nice little chat with myself :) I'm decided to go with the "My Business Name" format. Thanks "The Admin Zone" for showing me the way.

    I got the legal name done today in the format "My Business Name". Really pleased with this decision. Thanks again.

    I had been contemplating this for days while building the website. Those I asked about this preferred the sound of a .com version. And my primary online competition uses a .com version. I was very close to making this mistake. Posting on "The Admin Zone" saved me.

    What really clarified this decision was realizing the need for branding. First, the website name is already long enough; so leaving off the .com gives it a cleaner brand name type of look on the website. And then I noticed this site and others don't include the .com in their name. Plus, this shorter name gives more room in the banner for my two word slogan.
