    The domain name (my business name) that I plan to secure is 5 words/21 characters?

    Is it too long?
    Would it affect SEO or cause any other issues?

    Thanks
    Fabien

    Hi Fabien

    Are you building a website for search engines or for people?

    5 words and 21char is pretty long, and if you then addon the email part of "[email protected]" on the front, are people more likely to be put off by it?

    It depends on who you are building the website for in some ways.

    Yes

    If you need 5 words in the domain name you are doing it wrong

    The Fab New Tour Orgnaiser could be TFNTO.com - much easier to remember

    Thanks disick. I didn't think of using initials only but it makes sense.

    I'm hoping disick is a typo and not an abbreviation of dipstick...

    Don't worry about it, I think it might catch on. I might call Fisicx dipstick from now on. :D
