|Domain Name / Names / Permutations|

Just a heads up about one very important issue when choosing your domain name - get it right! There is much discussion about secondary domains, but carefull thought must first be put into the primary domain.
Point in case:- I was looking for an article at the Chinese Peoples Daily, so I typed in www.chinesedaily.com.cn . Oops, 404.
OK, perhaps www.peoplesdaily.com ? Yep, but an American mirror 'Under Construction', but with a redirect to www.peopledaily.com.cn.
Note the mistake? Magazine Title = "Peoples Daily", Domain = "People Daily" - no 's'.
Not only did they register the wrong one, they should have registered both.
Keep this in mind when registering you domain and make sure you get the permutations as well.

That's what mistyped names are called, permutations...
I learned a new web word. Kinda like the whitehouse.COM site, you know? I find myself mistyping even short names every now and then.
These are interesting variations on

Ha, to be honest I wasn't thinking of mistypings/misspellings, but rather of variations (permutations).
For Example, widgetindex.com widgetsindex.com, widget-index.com, widgets-index.com, etc.
