Not Sure whether to buy Domain Name or Not
Firstly, sorry for the not very descriptive title, I wasn't sure what to put.
For a while now I've been wanting to buy some proper hosting and create myself a website as I'm an aspiring designer so I'd like a place to showcase some work.
It's taken a long time but I've finally settled on Desire Line as a name I like. A quick search shows desirelinedesign.com is available for purchase. A bit more searching led me to http://www.desirelinesdesign.co.uk a graphic design company though.
That put me off buying the domain name, however, when I actually visited http://www.desirelinesdesign.co.uk there's nothing there. So now I'm not sure whether I should or shouldn't register desirelinedesign.com, on one hand it's very similar to another, on the other hand, the other one doesn't really exist.
Wondering what your thoughts are?

If you were in the UK then it would be more of a problem, but you aren't so maybe it's less of an issue.
Myself, I wouldn't want a domain name that's so close to somebody else's

Go and get the name. Now that you've publicly identified it as a name you want, it may just be a matter of time before someone else picks it up with the intention of making a profit from you. Heck I almost registered it myself just to see if you wanted to buy it back from me.....
Domain names are cheap. I have nearly a dozen I keep around for "just in case". You may end up getting a variation on the name Desire Line, and this name could then just feed in to your main site....
