    Cool Similar Domain Name with different extension at different server


    Hi everyone,
    I have a website example abcd.com hosted base in Kuala Lumpur, I was plan to build another website with similar Domain name but different extension example abcd.net hosting will be based in U.K. or U.S.

    The keywords target will be different and the content will be slightly different from Website based in Kuala Lumpur.

    The idea is to get a good link among this Website and get more traffic from Europe market.

    My question is
    1. Will Google will penalize me?
    2. Should I have get a new Domain name for Website hosted in U.K
    3. What your recommendation?

    Thank you in advance.

    1. Will Google will penalize me?
    Not for having different domains now. Just to clarify, a different "extension" or TLD (Top Level Domain) is a different domain. abcd.com and abcd.net are different domains. If you have duplicated content or significantly similar content (there are ways to check) then the newest version of the duplicated content will likely receive a penalty.

    2. Should I have get a new Domain name for Website hosted in U.K
    Yes probably, you should also host it in the target market. If your target market is the UK then use a .co.uk domain and host in the UK. Geographical factors are quite important when it comes to hosting and to a lesser extent, the domain name.

    3. What your recommendation?
    Target the appropriate market with a domain name and hosting in and ofr the country you are targeting. Create fresh and unique content for any new web site.
