This is the typical domain name for most companies, but if your company name isn’t easily spelled or longer than 10 letters, you should consider a shorter domain name that focuses either on your business service, type, feature, benefit, tagline.

While this will work, it is not preferred simply due to its length. Your formal company name is not for branding or marketing, if you can get it shorter, do it.

The sheer length of this can be daunting to anyone needing to type this into their browser, let alone get all the letters correctly. It is important to remember that domain names do not have any spaces, so look at your company name and see if you notice any strange new words coming out.
