    1) ford4x4.com

    2) ford4x4z.com

    3) ford4x4s.com

    I vote for the first one. Just seems to make more sense then the others.

    Pull lever No. 1.

    Most people recognize what 4x4 means. Most also don't have a clue what the extra letter on the end means.

    I can't see why you'd go for anything other than option 1, unless it wasn't available.

    Hands-down this is the best one.

    Cheers.

    Oh yes, number 1 is obviously the best choice. I hate webpages or anything else that uses a cute little "z" on the end that replaces the proper "s" to make it look kid friendly or whatever... :rolleyes:

    So yeah, number 1 is the best but if for some reason its not available, go with number 2.

    When it comes to domain names, less is more. One is the winner.

    I'll vote for #3 just to be different...
    Kinda like voting for Ross Perot... you know you are going to lose, but it's fun anyway ;)

    I have a Ford 4X4 :)

    I don't know anything about Macs, but I do know domain names... :)

    Buy # 1 and # 3.

    Use # 1 for the actual site.

    Re-direct # 3 to the actual site.


    Done.

    1) ford4x4.com
    Already registered.

    2) ford4x4z.com
    Available.

    3) ford4x4s.com
    Already registered.

    Hope that helps.

    And depending what you decided upon, Ford Corporation may claim ownership of the domain, even if they haven't registered it yet.

    True. But most responders are recommending #1, which isn't even available.

    From an SEO standpoint I'd have to go with ford4x4trucksuvchevynudeztwitteriphone.com
