    Question Will This cause problem?

    hello,

    I recently registered a domain name HealthRuns.com. Just after registering I checked out healthrun.com to register it too and redirect to healthruns.com but I found that it was a premium domain for sale from godaddy.

    Here is my question.

    Will the extra "s" in the domain name (Which I believe makes more sense according to me) be devalued?

    Do you think you will remember my domain name or the other one?

    Should i buy the premium one? (Prices ate around 2,000$) to protect my site?

    To be honest I wouldn't really worry about it unless you think that the product or service your site offers could be mistaken for your own, the thing is that if you thought the "Premium one" was really that important to the brand, why did you register the pluralised version (if it is less relevent)?

    I registered it because I just felt so. I did not think about the version without s. Anyway I have dropped the Idea. I got feedback that the domain name is a bit confusing. So I decided to split it into a number of sub niches.

    I registered the following .info domains. Going to test the effectiveness if .info domains in niches.

    DIETJOURNAL.INFO
    BODYMUSCLE.INFO
    NUTRITIONBENEFITS.INFO
    YOGABENEFITS.INFO
    MENTALHEALTHTIPS.INFO
    PREGNANCYAID.INFO
    DIABETESJOURNEL.INFO
    ACNEPREVNENTION.INFO

    I don't think it worth buying that premium domain name paying such huge price rather you should register other domain name .com preferably to avoid any chance of trademark issue.

    Surely you would check for any potential trademark problems before you buy a brand name which was the domain was previously owned by someone else. It would be silly to just buy up someone elses old domain and consider it a safe purchase without doing the basic background research you need.

    Web site makes your domain name memorable not vice versa. So good luck

    Good luck. That must appear soon but that might take up to the 70 hours
