    I am starting a T Shirt Dropshipping Brand. I am searching a perfect domain. Any suggestions for T shirt Brand

    If out of the USA, and you’re a local business, country-specific TLDs work very well too. Ex – I’m in Canada, and good .CA domains are much easier to get. Everyone here understands a .CA just as much as a .COM. Wouldn’t use it outside the country though.

    The best video – ever! It was very helpful. I recently purchased my first domain name and had a few more questions. Is it ok to ask here or through email? Thanks Wes!

    Oh my god that law firm name haha!

    Also, I have to say I love .io – to me this is a pretty good extension for tech companies.

    Should the domain name be the same like the brand name ? I wanted to do that , but unfortunately my brand’s name domain is already taken . And one more question . For businesses out of USA isn’t it better the ending to be related to the country for example .de for Germany or .fr for France rather than .com ?

    Hi Wes, I’ve been a subscriber for a while now. Really like your videos.
    Quick question and I hope you have a quick answer and strong feeling about this. I’m running an ecomm store (which I know is not your specialty) BUT sidebar IN or OUT???
    The reason I ask is because I think they give terrible UX on mobile and unfortunately WooCommerce and WordPress do not provide great filtering options for customers if the functions are not a widget in the sidebar. Any thoughts you could share with me? Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
