Hi Guys,


As the title suggests, I am looking to change my name. It appears to be too close to HudsonValley, and I want to make sure that it is no where close. Please vote and give me your ideas, thankyou!

For fiscal year ending February 28th, 2014 (Fiscal Year 2013), ColoCrossing recorded a record $6.17 M in annual revenue, an 84% year over year increase  source
HVH is only a fraction of that revenue.


I vote to keep your existing name.

HudsonHost.net
The #1 google search result for "hudson host" is Hudson Valley Host.


HVH doesn't appear on the first page of google search results for your current name "Hudson Web Services" or for "Hudson Webs"

You can keep it as is, or Shorten It I am always a fan of Shortening the domain if possible.


And if you choose to add more than just web services, and include design, SEO, and more I suggest a name like hudsonservices If you want to keep hudson in the name.

I'd create something new / original... I understand the namesake...  Unfortunately all those in hosting or numerous other businesses choose to forego their namesake.  Nothing sells like a properly soiled name or one too coincidentally close to things already parked on name in search --- which means it sells not at all or people wrongly buy from the other brand.


One must care about search visibility or it's like removing a limb for disability penalty. One still can thrive, but is a major barrier to most.

something like hudsonhosting.com or hudsonhosting.net would work. keeping a keyword like hosting in your name would help you rank better and faster on search engines.

Thanks for all the help guys!

Unfortunately, anything with hosting is premium (.com and .net) anyways. Hudsonhosting.org is avaliable

Another vote for the "other" category here. If your brand could potentially be confused with another brand that should be a big red flag. It seems the Hudson part is the bit that's causing the confusion, so other alternatives that keep that part of the name aren't going to be a great solution to your problem. I'd suggest taking the opportunity to go for something totally different.

I would go for with the first one, it is short, have host in it and have your company name, what else you want? should be more than good enough for you.
