Domain name: with or without dash? Platypus msg:4246971 9:48 am on Dec 29, 2010 (gmt 0) I'm considering a new domain name consisting of two words, and wondering if it's better to insert a dash or not. When registering the actual name, I'll register both domains obviously, having one redirect to the other. But what would be best to use as 'main' domain?

the domain without the dash is always better. Unless you have pretty famous and stable brand, going with a domain with a dash (-) in it is "No NO" in my opinion. Other reason for not going with a dash is that it becomes easy to pass to some arbitrary person or makes it easier to type in a flow without giving a brief pause for putting - .
