    Domain Query


    Hello,

    My first post on the forum!

    My UK company website domain is currently .com but we also own .co.uk currently we use the .com for the UK market and it is fairly established, however, we are now moving into the US market and require a website to target direct sales and here is our dilemma;

    Should we change the .com to target the US market and (in effect) start again with the .co.uk for the UK market or should we keep the .com for the UK Market (because it is fairly established) and use a variation of our company name with a .com extension for the US market?

    Just looking for opinions on the pros & cons relating to SEO impact of both options?

    Cheers!

    Andy

    IMO you should stay with .com when you all ready established with the domain no need to think of switching over.

    Hi seork,

    Thanks for your reply...

    So what you are saying is that you would leave the .com as it is for the UK market and use a different variation of our company name (with a .com extension) for the US market?

    Thanks

    Andy

    Andy I think you should stay with .com for both market. If you are performing well in UK market with the current domain I do not think it should be changed. Hope this is clear to you now.
