Hi everyone,

I would like to start creating a portfolio of new .com domains containing two words (since one-word ones are really rare).

Sometimes, however, it happens that the beginning of the first word coincides with the end of the second word. I cite examples of 2 words that have an overlap, of which I am NOT the owner:

1) ideal - list could be ideallist or idealist
2) domain - name could be domainame or domainname
3) photo - toronto (overlapping of 2 letters) could be photoronto or phototoronto.

In your opinion, what would be the best type of domain to buy?

Thank you in advance for your opinions. Thanks to this community I am learning a lot!

DomainName.com is way better than Domainame.com, however the latter might have some value as a brandable… I registered and sold Digitaloan, which has much much less value than DigitalLoan would have, but there was still some value. Part of the problem with this type combined names is they don’t pass the “radio test” when you say them. If I tell someone to go to Digitaloan-dot-com, they will likely go to DigitalLoan-dot-com. The actual two word is always better.

All that said “idealist” is a one-word already so that would be a very nice premium name.

Does anyone really advertise websites on the radio anymore? Compared to internet native ads it sounds a bit inefficient. I’d rather advertise to people that can directly click on the ad, not “maybe” type it in somewhere later

It is called the radio test, but it just means whether people will know how to spell it when you say it out loud. If you are using the domain for a business and you tell people your website or email address in person or on the phone and they don’t know how to spell it, it can cause a lot of problems or hassles.
