Opinion

How do you like my new domain name?

I have lately changed my domain form www.xixblog.com to www.wplancer.com. Well, you might like to hear some explanation about this decision of mine.

As a matter of fact I am against changing the domain name of a established site because the content is already indexed in the search engines and you will loose the traffic coming from them. However, I decided to change my domain name because I found more pro arguments out there. Find some below please:

  1. My past domain had a spelling error because of my dyslexic nature – however, I made use of it.
  2. My past domain name was meant to have another niche form what it switched to.
  3. My new domain describes better my niche.
  4. My new domain is cute.

This is it. I would love your opinion about my decision and my new domain. Thanks a lot!

    The old domain is hard to pronounce too, which is not good for building your brand.

    I agree, sounds like WP freelancer.

    Wish you all the best with your new brand.
