The Importance of Choosing a Domain Name

As this business was percolating in my brain I decided that HomeGrown was the perfect name for a shop designed to celebrate local artists. However, when I searched the domain name I discovered that another business owner also thought it would make an ideal name for their particular industry – which just so happens to be adult porn. Argghhh!  I was reminded of that today. So that is why the "artsandcrafts" is tacked on to the domain name – making it an incredibly long and tedious url to type. I apologize if their were any surprises along the way for anyone trying to discover our site... I do shudder at the thought as I noticed the recent article in the Duxbury Reporter did not list the website address.
