    Disadvantages of hyphenated domain names

    1.Adds an extra character to the domain name
    2.May pose some recall issues as people are generally used to domains without hyphens
    3.Harder to advertise on radio or through word of mouth.
    4.Generally won't have as good a resale value as the non-hyphenated equivalent

    Hi,


    It is a very debatable topic. Read about all the advantages and disadvantages of using hyphen in domain names and do your own analysis to find out which one has an edge over the other.

    1. Visitors tend to forget typing the hyphen
    2. Difficult to read and communicate to others
    3. People usually get the wrong URL if there are hyphens in domain names
