I'm going to get a domain name for my personal web page. It will contain my blogg, photos and other personal stuff, plus different web apps and tools that I'm working on.
I have put quite a lot of work in one of the web apps, and I think it has great potential. It covers a niche in a way that no other page has done before and I can see great posibilities to expand it. Via links to webstores and ads I think it could even make some money, and if I play it right this could be the place to go when you're into the specific niche that it covers (sorry for being so vague).
My question is, would it be better for a (potentially great) web app like this to have its own domain name (
nameofmyapp.com) instead of being a subpage of my personal page (
mypersonaldomain.com/nameofmyapp)? Is the web app more likely to be found by others, via google etc, with its own domain name? Could a "subpage" give more attention (visitors) to my personal page? pros and cons?
