    OK my lovely Disney Secrets Family I need your valid opinions

    As some of you know i'm going to be made redundant shortly, well i'm thinking of start a business (yes another, photography and cupcakes just aren't enough ). This one will be a secretarial services offering everything and anything secretarial to individuals, small business etc that don't want to hire a full time secretary but still need some kind of support. I'm also thinking about offering it out to students who hate computers but want their work typed up as i've got a few audio programmes, etc.

    Anyway i've come up with the name All Things Secretary but not sure on the domain to purchase, would you go with:-

    www.allthingssecretary.co.uk

    or

    www.all-things-secretary.co.uk

    Thanks
    Lisa

    Wow, Lisa! You're a machine! Well done!

    Personally, I prefer the allonewordnohyphen option :) even though the double 's' might be a bit tricky for some, I still find it easier to remember then trying to recall if that url I saw in the advert was hyphens, periods or underscores....

    I like the first one as its easier to type in, good luck! You might have already thought of this but Perhaps get yourself a facebook page too and advertise on a local facebook page, we have a local one and a lot of small businesses are doing really well on word of mouth, and it's free advertising too!

    hyphens are ALWAYS a pain to explain on the phone. We had a company called u-net.com and I was forever on the phone saying "U hyphen net" eh? "U then minus sign NET" what? "UminusNET" whats a minus.. ok the dash on your keyboard by the 0 key ARHGHGHGHGHG

    I would never do that again.

    Remember that people will mostly find your site through google anyway or via a business card or email. So the number of people having to remember the exact spelling of your site shouldn't be that many.

    I like the look of the second option more but people will remember the first one better.

    Dashes and underscores drive me mad!

    So, easy peasey for me. I'd go with the alloneword. Maybe drop the double s, but that's it.

    I love the sounds of the service though! I sure hope you get loads of calls!

    Thank you all :)

    I've decided to go for the first one, although it will be secretarial rather than secretary to keep it grammatically correct :)
