Should I register a .com or a .ca??
I like to keep it Canadian, but would this deter over the border sales?
Or whatabout registering Both & having mirror sites? Having local pricing would probably be a benefit.
Thats what I was thinking too. I could also keep the .com site in USD & the .ca in canadian. Then I would have the lil flags up top & if you clicked one or the other it would take you to the country of your choice.
But would there be a search engine conflict? This is my biggest concern...
Register it so that somebody doesn't use it but I suggest you use the .com as the main site. Having two sites means promoting two sites and one is hard on its own.
Canadian internet usage (for shopping) is a fraction of US. Unless your brand is specifically Canadian aimed, when you're online the majority of your N.American customers are going to be from US. I understand you feel partial to your country but from a purely business perspective, .com should be the main.
Ill get them both. I realize the bulk of the business would come from south of the border, but I plan to aggressively guerilla market the city in which I live, so hopefully will get some results...
What about registering a .co.uk domain???
