I am just wondering since I got a .net version of my domain is it a good idea to secure .co.uk as well, people sometimes steal your brand name and use it for other purposes or for ** which the can result in your website being blocked especially for people in schools and stuff, and search engines will probably give a low ranking.

What do you guys think? I mean the main problem is that it will cost a lot unless I can just reserve a domain or something.

yes it is a good idea to get a domain name in every TLD that you can... as possible... because some users might typo your domain instead of .net
they might type .com or .co.uk and that's a lost in visitor and some other people can steal your brand..

I registered a co.uk for 10 years, .com and .net are quite expensive yet..

Of course it's good. Set them up to all redirect to your main domain and you're set.

No one can steal your name and you have extra links directing to your site.

Privacy on business domains is just dumb. If your company is legally registered, and you are the owner, then anyone can look up who owns the company and find out your name.

Securing many domains for your site can help you in the long-run. It is well worth it.

Well, you mentioned stealing brand-names. Brands only really apply to companies. Anything else is just a name.

I am only worried if someone starts using that name for pornographic content or fraud, but in that case I guess you could sue them and get the domain. My website is educational..
