    I'm finally trying to set up my website and I can't come up with a name. I was trying to keep my email and website the same, but it's saying that it's not available. My name is topchef.heather...can't use., I tried topchefheather - not available, topchefheathermeyer - not available. topchef - not available. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance! :chef:

    then change your email. I highly suggest using a free web-based mail service for PC so you don't have to change your address every time you change providers.

    I do use gmail, so I guess it would be easier to change that.

    I was under the impression that you can't use "Chef" in your website address because it's a part of the tagline...

    Found it:

    for ease of use, your first & last name works great. I was trying to be creative when I made mine.... /crystalscookingnow and it's really hard to fit it all on a business card, etc.

    Oh, I thought I read that too, but then I also thought that I saw a few websites out there that didn't follow the rules...so I wasn't really sure where I read that at. Maybe that's why it won't take my name, maybe it blocks it automatically.

    That also makes it easy for people to remember what your site is.

    The rule was put in place a couple of years ago, so there are web addresses out there that were grandfathered in.

    I've seen people use things like heatherskitchen. I just use a nickname that I've always used

    Mine is lockhartkitchen for both email and web page. (I do have issues when using the website on business cards, because it's about 2 characters too long. I have to reduce the font size). Your last name is shorter and would work nice.

    Try to keep it short, easier to remember.

    If you do change your e-mail go with a chefsuccess.com e-mail. Mine in yourpclady@cheffsuccess.com and I love it. My website is fiveinthehive and I love that too!
