When we plan to start WordPress niche website we have to select a perfect name in order to make our website a brand. However, it’s a difficult process to choose a keyword based name that can convert into a brand.
In the same way when we was planning to start WPstand.com it was difficult to choose a name, we have to search a lot about the issue. We think several names with keyword “WP” and “WordPress” however, thanks God! We didn’t select a name with “WordPress” keyword when we searched about this we found WordPress.org is not allowing to use their brand name in top-level domain name.
For various reasons related to our WordPress trademark, we ask if you’re going to start a site about WordPress or related to it that you not use “WordPress” in the domain name. Try using “wp” instead, or another variation. We’re not lawyers, but very good ones tell us we have to do this to preserve our trademark. Also many users have told us they find it confusing.
However, if you have a domain name with “WordPress” simply get a new domain name with “WP” keyword and redirect the old domain with the new one.
If you are not going to redirect your “WordPress” domain name with “WP” you would have to face any problem on initial states but with the passage of time be ready for the Automattic Company plenty about the issue.
