    I just purchased a tree care company that does not have a web site.
    Problem is the company name is not uncommon and the most basic .com names are taken.

    My question. What is the best way to get a short name .com without causing confusion when a potential client sees it.

    Put a hyphen in? ABC-tree.com? This seems to be the best available.

    Not sure really how to ask the question. I hope you guys can help

    Thanks.

    Is there a city name you can incorporate? For example portlandtreeservice.com

    Or just pick a name that describes what you do instead?

    Hyphens should be avoided. to easy to be forgotten.

    Sorry, got caught up with other things and did not get back to check this post.

    Thanks for the input.

    I was afraid the hyphen would be a problem, hence its availability.

    I was thinking along the lines of headz suggestion and add ny to the beginning or end of the name since that is where we are located. Anything more than that and the name becomes too long.

    I am working on this and other social media this week so any other input is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Bryan
