name for skills website

Hi

I'm wondering if anyone can help me with a name for a skills-based website. I've had Skillicious, Skillivity, Skillypso, Perojex. But am running out of ideas.

Help appreciated.

Regards

neither. 99% chance that someone will hear of you, rather than read your name and how the heck are they going to spell it right and find you, without accidently bumping into a rival site? keep it simple. skills etc. or highlyskilled.co or allskills anything just dont make it silly if you are in the business world and not a creative agency

I have to agree with Moneyman, also I would not post any of your possible domain names/business names on here as the chances are they will get registered before you get the chance to do so.

I've thought of a few simple ones but no .com, only .net

What about TheSkill.co.uk ?

.co.uk available now, .com and .net is not, but i know plenty of companies that run a success on just a .co.uk and never need the .com or .net

you can get away without a dot com if you are small and uk based. in fact i would say .co.uk is much better. i tend to search them first for freelancers as i wont be bothered by overseas people.
however check out the dot com. i started before this was all a problem and my .com is a gay porno site which hardly enhances my reputation.

did you just nick that name to screw up another forum member and then boast about it?

just remember that post will be searchable for years if people want to know how ethical your company is. If i wanted you to set up a site for me and register the name on my behalf i would definitely think again. it makes you look like a completely unethical chancer. where is it going to get you, probably you wont make a fiver but you have just probably messed up your chances of something big in the future.

you dont need to be a complete git to get ahead in business, you need friends.

Kinster said the .co.uk was no good he needed .com

Therefore if someone says its no good for them I'm not going to leave it for someone else to snap it up am I.

If kinster decides he wants the domain, I'm happy for him to contact me and he can have it for the £11.75 it cost me.

Plus the Nominet transfer fee. This does highlight the fact though that you should not discuss domains on a public board as if Tyler hadn't registered it then it would have been someone else...

Take note of what moneyman said tyler,

Of course you have every right to purchase that domain but I dont see the point if you dont even want or need it and if your going to sell it to kinster for the same price you paid for it , why bother?

Just causes problems tyler mate, if kinster needed it then why take it from him? Its an irrelevant domain to you and your business anyway!

But if you want to cause agro then thats up to you!
