Domain Wanted Taken - What's the Next Best Choice?


The domain name I wanted, after hours of research, is taken. Which of these would be the next best option:

Add a 1:
Use a dash:
Use net:

I tend to go with the first one because I've heard that domains with dashes, or ending with net are not as credible.

Any suggestions?

I would say NO dash and NO .net (as the initial domain). What about adding 101 to the end? Try using an adjective or short descriptor to replace "my" as well. Just my opinion ;^)

Depending on the domain name you have chosen, you could also add "best" before it, so it comes out as something like
