24-Hour Contest – Win A $25 GoDaddy Gift Card By Helping Me Pick A Domain Name!

For those of you who talked with me at DOMAINfest you know that I’m in the process of starting a blog about ccTLD’s. This is a topic that I’m passionate about and an area within the Domaining space that I think has INCREDIBLE potential over the next five years. I am making some changes in my business as well to increase focus on ccTLD’s and those announcements will be coming soon!

This blog will remain focused as it has been since October of 2007 on Domaining, SEO and Affiliate Marketing – i.e. teaching you how to make money with your domains!

So now I’m trying to pick the best name for my ccTLD Blog and I thought – why not ask my readers? So I’m asking you what you think would be the best name for the blog – I have a few domains listed below that I’m considering – you can vote on one of these or make a suggestion of your own! To win all you have to do is submit a comment with your vote. You’ll want to act quickly as the contest ends in just 24-hours!

  1. ccTLDGuy.com
  2. MrccTLD.com
  3. ccTLDBlog.me
  4. ccTLDBlog.us
  5. ccTLD.fm

Let me know which of these five you think is the best…and remember if you don’t like any of them – let me know and suggest another! Thanks in advance for your help!

    ccTLDBlog.me I like MrccTLD.com
    but can you have a cctld blog on a .com?

  • Chris Robbins January 31, 2010, 7:16 pm

    Of the above, I like ccTLDGuy.com the best. Others I’d think about: ccTLDExpert.com, ccTLDBlogger.com, ccTLDz.com, ccTLDNinja.com.

    @teendomainer I thought about that too, but if you have it on a ccTLD you have a problem where people might think you are only interested in that one country code. DotCom is all-inclusive & neutral.

    Of your list I like cctldblog.us but how about cctldvestors.us? You know, keeping your brand.

    ccTLD.fm (and I would also grab ccTLDs.fm as it’s available) would be my pick as it’s short, has exact match searches and would fit a podcast type format. If you don’t want a podcast format, I would skip the ccTLD(s) names and go with something like CountryCodeDomains.TV or DomainExtensions.TV or something like that which would play to your strengths with video content, would be more accessible to non-domainers who may not know the lingo and be better brands I think. I mean, cctlds doesn’t exact role off the tongue.
    Better yet, plunk down some cash for CountryCodeDomains.com (for sale at BuyDomains) or DomainExtensions.com (owned by Francois).
    Best of luck!

    I think this one is better:

    CCTLDwizard.com

    DotFM is too pricey, methinks. For that matter you could do CountryCodeNinja.com or ccBlog.us or ccBlog.tv or ccTLDTV.com or maybe just create a subdomain on MorganLinton.com.

    I wouldn’t do another blog.There is no reason why you can’t discuss ccTLD’s here. Keep it to one blog Morgan!!!

    I didn’t like any of the suggested domains. So, I looked up a few domains and found some that were available.

    Reasons for picking the following domains:
    1) You want the domain to be memorable
    2) If you know a lot about a topic .. you are considered a Pro , a guru .. so why not use that in the domain name ?

    Suggestions :

    cctldGuru.com
    cctldpro.com
    cctlddaddy.com
    cctldtube.com
    cctld247.com
    cctld101.com & cctlds101.com ( As you might know .. 101 lets you know that the site will be teaching you everything right from the basic .. like a manual )

    I could have kept going on and on but these were the names that are easy to remember and “in” atm.

    I hope this post helped you in choosing the right domain.

    or ccTLDspy.com or IHeartccTLDs.com or ChefccTLD.com or ccTLDsAreBetterThanSex.com, lol. That being said, Patrick’s advice is probably the best unless you have a really specific need to have it as a separate blog. You can even create category tabs at the top of the blog to separate by interests: ccTLDs, affiliate marketing, SEO, etc.

  • Rosco January 31, 2010, 9:46 pm

    Same as Chef Patrick I would add a ccTLD catergory to this blog and start typing away. ccTLD’s are related to SEO , Domaining and Affiliate Marketing.

  • Victor paez January 31, 2010, 10:05 pm

    I agree with Andrew Douglas. I like Dot FM. This extension is pricey but it is very catchy and easy to remember. With development, it would rank close to Dot DE and Dot co.uk. Definitely better than Dot CC, Dot Me, Dot WS, Dot IT, Dot IN, Dot ES, Dot US , Dot Org, and several others. Snatch them up(Dot FM’s) because when they drop in reg fee all the generic domains with Dot FM will be taken.

    Morgan,

    ccTLD.fm is the best choice* in my opinion.

    Sincerely,

    B.C.

    * – If you do in fact use the .fm tld, I think it would be extremely beneficial to include a ccTLD.fm radiocast. You could interview established ccTLD-ers which would set you apart from any other ccTLD blog and keep visitors coming back. You’ve already got a successful domaining blog, a soon-to-be successful television show, so the only thing missing is a successful domaining (focused on ccTLDs) radio show at ccTLD.fm!

        Great feedback from everyone. In response to people saying I shouldn’t start another blog the idea here is to have a blog that multiple people contribute to rather than just me. MorganLinton.com will still be 100% written by me whereas my ccTLD blog will be myself as well as all the experts in each particular country code. I’ve found there are people who have great expertise in .de or .me with little experience in other ccTLD’s – I would like to make a resource where myself and others can share our experiences.

        I went from 10 blogs last year to one – but I feel I really would like a specific blog dedicated to ccTLD’s since this is a major area my business will be focused on in 2010.

        Reply
  • Edgar February 1, 2010, 1:36 am

    Just another option for you to consider … maybe having a subdomain called ccTLD.MorganLinton.com will differentiate it from the main blog? It’s easier to just go to one website for all your articles.

    Good luck Morgan!

    I like CCDomains.com but Mr. Schilling has it. Maybe he will let you use it? dot com extension seem logical so you can cover all of the extensions without showing preference to any in particular.
    Best.

    This has a great ring to it: ccTLDBlog.us or .me

    They both sound good to me.

    Makes complete sense to create a resource where writers which are particular to a specific domain space can pool resources together and zone in on what they feel is important. Should be an interesting resource.

    Morgan,
    I have your blog name for you; runTLD.com. Memorable and brandable. Of course I may be biased since I was a RunDMC fan. Heck if you don’t want it I might reg it myself unless somebody else “steals” my idea but as long as they give me credit lol.

  • John Humphrey February 1, 2010, 9:03 am

    Hey Morgan,
    I didn’t like any of them and didn’t want to recommend anything I wouldn’t buy myself, so I registered CountryCodeDomainNames.com A little long but may have some advantages. The competition is all parked. Should be pretty easy to SEO with some decent content.
    It’s a gift, if you use it for the new blog. (As a gift it doesn’t qualify for the GoDaddy coupon.)
    Otherwise I’ll get some content on it and we can exchange links!
    Best

      Thanks @John – I appreciate the feedback – definitely want to go with a shorter domain. Also if you look at search volume ccTLD and ccTLD’s get many more searches than Country Code Domain Names which gets almost none. As you know I’m a bit of an SEO geek so always like to get a domain that have keywords with good search volume.

      • Morgan February 1, 2010, 9:53 pm

        Really great advice from everyone! I thought I’d throw one more name out there to see what people thought – how about CCTLDInvesting.com – I thought this might be a good fit since I would like to keep this open to multiple contributors.

        Thanks in advance – winner will be announced tonight!

  • Ozie Jackson February 1, 2010, 9:32 am

    One more idea while I’m thinking of it; MorganTLD.com. My thinking here is that this blog will be primarily visited by people in the domain industry. The vast majority of us already know who you are and MorganLinton.com is already branded in the industry.

    Therefore, I don’t think the name of the blog necessarily has to have “ccTLD” in it for industry people to understand that it is about ccTLDs. And MorganTLD.com is more memorable than ccTLDguy dot whatever. My 2 cents.

    • Morgan February 1, 2010, 3:20 pm

      Thanks for the feedback @Ozie although I’d like to have a number of writers on the blog so I’d like to have the blog exist on a brand that isn’t directly associated with my name.

    Morgan,

    For your ccTLD blog I recommend the following MyccTLDblog.com or TheccTLDblog.com (not registered as of now)

    Of the ones you have listed I would go for ccTLDguy.com (I would personally stick with a “.com”)

    P.S. you and Jason did a great job on the CA Domainer Meetup in Santa Monica… I enjoyed it very much and made some some great contacts. I am looking forward to the next one! I enjoyed talking with you and Jason and remeber you saying you liked wines. My website BajaWines.com is not currently live (I’m parking it because of personal time constraints but will develop it again in the near future… next time we meet though I’ll bring up a bottle of Baja Wine for you and your girlfriend.

    I can remember ccTldGuy.com after reading the list. Better, if you can get ccTldBlog in .com version, it would be the most remember able and generic one. Goodluck!
