    Decided to help with my big spring direct mail campaign, Im going to launch a new website for my landscape company with a more simple/direct domain name. My current domain for the landscape company is onekrayzeekajun.com. Its a little long and hard to remember. Thinking of making the new domain kajunlandscape.com, and use the emails as info@kajunlandscape, jacob@kajunlandscape. Ive decided to go with kajunflood.com for the new company. That way when people do a search for either company both sites will come up.

    Kajun, I definitely like the idea of shortening to kajunlandscape.com or kajunlandscaping.com

    If you use GoDaddy, here's a 1st year 99 cent promo code. Expires 1/3. I've had luck using it for up to 3 domains. CJC99D

    What are your site building plans? If you plan on using their site building tools, gun to head, I would go with Yahoo. If you are building a site and just plan on using it for hosting, I would just choose none of the above and find a good, solid company that focuses on hosting.

    For what it's worth, your current Yahoo-hosted site's IP address has 884 other domains on it. GoDaddy-wise, last night I was looking at a Lawnsite member's WordPress site that was running extremely slow. In looking at his IP, it had 768 other sites on it. This issue opens the door for any number of sites to impact your site's performance and black-listing potential.

    I think you are a good guy.

    I would be happy to set up a drupal site for you but I am not going to add content or manage it. Trust me, it is not an easy site to manage but worth the trouble.

    Your choice.

    Tony asked me once if I liked hunting squirrel with a rocket launcher. Drupal is a serious CMS :waving:

    Check out Squarespace. If you can use Yahoo you will figure it out fast. Great support. Pretty good for a site builder. It isn't holding my SEO back much- and I am in a pretty competitive market.
