Hello, Im building a website and I have been searching for a suitable domain for the last 4 weeks without any success. The website is almost finished, but I can't decide on a domain yet. I know what you're thinking, that I should have secured a great domain "before" I decided to build a website. I used to give others the same advice, and now im in the same situation myself. I actually have one domain but it's not my first choice. The domains I have inquired about is overpriced, and I cant afford them. So, to my question: What is best nowadays when it comes to the domain choice? 4 letter acronym? Example: IMDB.com, DMOZ.org etc Keyword? CheapTickets.com, Vacationrentals.com Brandable? Snapchat.com, Flippa.com, Airbnb etc Also, what is the maximum length for a domain? In my own mind, the maximum length shouldn't exceed 8 letters. (No hyphens, no numbers etc) And, I would never go for something other than a "dot com" because I dont want to leake traffic to the "dot com" owner and buy it for a much higher price in the future because of the leaky traffic. Im hoping to get some opinions from people so that it will make my choice somewhat easier and hopefully this thread can help others when it comes to domain choices aswell. Thanks!
