I want to buy a domain for a classified website. What happen if I use a famous actor's name who also known in my country as the domain name for my website?

for eg: If I use salman khans's ( he is indian actor who knows every one in my country )

first name as domain name


what kind of a SEO advantage will I get?

If somebody type just salman sure google will show results of slaman khan's If somebody type salman.lk will it indexed on google?

What is the legal side of this?

What is your idea?

A negligible amount, because the name does have value, but keywords in domainnames are barely worth anything. Especially when the site isn't about him at all.

The risk is that his lawyers sue you. And if you're making money of his name, that'll be a claim way higher than you'll ever make by using his name.

Just pick a name related to your site.
