Default Need Opinions On Business Name

Hello everyone

I was hoping that you all could give me some feedback on my new business name idea. I have a personal attachment to the name so it evokes a different meaning and association for me but I need some outside opinions. I am setting up a website that sells organic and green products and was considering the name "Solar Organics". Please let me know the first thing that came to mind, what associations you make with the name and do you think it is related to the products I want to sell. Thanks so much for your support!!

I like it, but feel a little confused if it is related to solar products.

If you are looking for the .com version, here is a copy paste from Go Daddy.

is a Premium Domain Name and
is available for $1,595.00*

The Hypenated version Solar-Organics.com is available for $9.99.

Always check to make sure your name is available in the version you desire before you fall in love with it.

Default Sometimes, simple is great

Hiya, the advice on checking what web names are available first is good advice. Here are a couple of really simple ones that are available and might work for you (and they ain't premiums, just regular old $10 names):


I hope this helps.

Good luck,

Default I Would Go For It

Don't spend too much on the domain. Your website needs 6 months to be traffic profitable even with a good idea.

What comes to my mind quickly is something to do with the sun and organic which could really be many things organic.

10 minutes could save your business thousands of dollars.

In addition to name, I think you have to spend a lot of time doing keyword research and also the backlinks of your competition and traffic numbers to be sure you can compete effectively.

it has a ring to it. Though I agree with the poster above who says it wouldn't shouted out really what you did.

BUT, if you are looking for the name to be more than just for a domain name then it is really going to be down to you to 'make it' mean something. Build the brand.

I'll look forward to the day when I go searching for 'Solar Organics'

Default solar organics

There are a new range of solar technologies coming to market based on thin films and organic molecules.

So-called polymer solar panels.

I'm afraid that's what your name made me think of. I suppose that a well-designed logo could make a difference!
