Thread: domain naming advice please

  1. #1

    Default domain naming advice please

    Hello,

    I am going to set up a website.
    It is for showcasing photography works.

    which sounds better?

    www.rickyphoto.com or www.rickyphotography.com

    Questions
    Is shorter better?
    Does "photography" denotes photography services of a photographer better than "photo"?
    Does "photo" sounds like it is for a photo developing or photographic product shop like AP or CP?

    Please advise.

    I prefer the first one, sounds a bit more professional. Also photo implies a singular image where as photography implies your personal portfolio. Just my thoughts.

    Anyway I think a shorter one is better... easier to remeber as well as type.
