                I would avoid using a dash or underscore in your web address if you can. They are a pain to type, harder to remember and people are more likely to mistype the URL's if they need to use one of these symbols.

                Don't mean to be negative, just my opinion.

                  handmade is fine, but any websites that have handmadewithlove in their title I wouldnt go with 10 miles of. I think it sounds very unprofessional. Just my two bits worth, but if yuou like it you do it.

                    Does anyone else think the same - be honest I can take it. I wont be offended. I want to get it right

                      personally I don't think it sounds very professional.

                        I'd drop the 'with love' bit as well - if it gets too long no-one'll be able to remember it!

                              I agree completely about the hypens, noone remembers them when they are typing in your domain!

                              That said they do have only one redeeming feature in that search engines sometimes prefer them to separate keywords. Not that it would work in this case - only if you separated particular keywords like 'handmade' and 'cards' e.g. handmade-cards.

                              It is probably unwise to put hypens in your domain unless you are
                              a) going mainly for search engine results rather than people typing in your address
                              and
                              b) using hypens to separate important keywords

                              I would try to pick the shortest domain name you can for ease of use by everyone (I know this is tricky as they are virtually all taken now...)

                              try to pick something instantly memorable (think google,yahoo,amazon,facebook and other internet successes!)
