You’re starting a business. You go to reserve the domain name you want. It’s taken. Join the club.
It’s easy to go with your second choice, but if your business venture is successful, you’re better off getting it right from the beginning. The following companies learned the hard way, and (in some cases) paid (dearly) for their domain name of choice after they became successful. (This list does not include businesses that purchased a .com version of their domain also, but maintains their original domain name as their primary domain name, such as bitly.com for bit.ly.)
