I bought an online shop that came with a short but not brand-specific
.company domain, but I would prefer to use a brand-specific
.com domain. I was told that I cannot change it unless I'm willing to pay a lot.
Here are my questions:
How much better is a
.comdomain (with regard to SEO, credibility, and memorability), and how important is it that the brand is part of the domain (
I have not done any marketing yet, so I don't have links pointing to my site as far as I'm aware. Would it make sense at all to get the
.comdomain I want and just redirect it to my
.companydomain (without masking) and then use that in my marketing? Or would that just cause unnecessary confusion or SEO disadvantages?
