    Hey Guys i'm currntly using a TikiNet .TK domain for my Blog
    My Nickname is munky everybody calls me that and since Monkey Business refers to "Questionable or mischievous practices or shenanigans" which is cool for creative photography ; so i decided to go with that MunkyBusiness but .com was taken so i took the .tk domain in the meantime; But i recently recieved and email from the owners of www.munkybusiness.com the told me that their domains sell for $15k+ so that one is out of the question; MunkyBizness is taken the only one left is www.MunkyBiznezz.com but i dont know if to buy that one or change the "concept" cuz the "X Photography.com" is a little Burned Out....what do you guys recommend....
    I mostly Shoot cars/auto/racing related but i do a little of everything portraits landscapes etc....

    I had in mind MunkyDigitalStudio...but it dosent drive me crazy....lol
    Please help a Brother out

    I'd leave that out of your business plan and off the website too if you want to actually attract customers.

    "munkybusiness.com" looks like one of those domain squatters: people who buy up domains and fill them up with pointless junk, waiting until they can extort someone like you who wants to buy the domain for legitimate reasons. If you want it badly enough, you might be able to take up a case with ICANN or something.

    What's wrong with munkybusiness.tk? I think it's kind of neat.

    if youre serious about photography, i think i would avoid munkybiznezz...it has a rather unprofessional connotation to it.

    what about something else that implies what you do?...

    munkyimaging.com
    munkyphoto.com
    etc...

    I like MunkyBiznezz.com though. I would like to see a connection to photography somewhere in the name though.

    Nah, "MunkyBiznezz.com" totally reads as "the better domain is already taken".
    Besides, if you give that address out verbally, you will have to explain the spelling everytime, and nobody will remember how many Z's went where.

    hahaha

    I agree. this might be a reasonable rout to take. But you might have to to be able to establish yourself as an existing business to get it from them. Aside from that, I agree that "munkeybusiness" sounds pretty unprofessional. "munkeyshots" might be just the edge your looking for though.
