How many Variants of a Domain Name Are Useful

Generally at the time of registration most registrants register singular as well as plural version of a domain name if it’s available. And, also sometimes they register the .net and .org version of a domain name because after .com, .net and .org are regarded as the second best TLDs. Also, if it’s a two word domain name, a registrant may also chose to register the hyphen version of that name in order to keep full control on the name.

Well, it’s a good idea to register other variants of your domain name especially if you’re going to build a business on it and if it’s for investment purpose it’s not essentially needed.

There is no need to register too many variants of a domain name as it’s not needed but a recent look at verisignlabs gave me an entirely different picture of a possible domain registration for a press related keyword. Following were the domains:

24-7pressrelase.com
24-7pressreleas.com
24-7pressrelese.com
24-7presselease.com
247-pressrelease.com
24-7pressrlease.com
24-7pressrelaese.com
24-7pressreleasee.com
4-7pressrelease.com
2-7pressrelease.com
224-7pressrelease.com
24-7pressreease.com
24-7pressreleae.com
24-pressrelease.com

The registrant came up with 14 variants to protect the 247-PressRelease.com which I think all were not needed except the 247-PresseRelease.com
