    Number in domain name

    How number is treated in domain name?
    For example
    "room4rent"
    "car4hire"
    "care4hire"
    "someonespecial4u"
    What is your opinion to include no in domain is easy to remember for general people, it is a trick get noticed, or you think it as bullshit. Please give your opinion. Thank you.

    this type of domain is very popular here (malaysia) but i don't fancy it.
    1. Difficult to do personal intro/promo.
    2. User get confuse with number and word.
    3. Bot don't use it as keyword.

    I don't like it, because you always have to make sure you tell them to use a number when you mention your website address.
    For blood type dating go here. If your blood type is rhesus negative, go there. If you are bored and feel like liking a Facebook page, hit this one.

    I don't like it either. I think that a number in the domain lowers the reseale value.

    I guess numbers are o.k. for personal sites and would work well for a site name that featured a property address etc.

    there is no doubt about that number can short your domain name and I do not think so that digit in domain can harm in reputation because many famous sites use this.

    on the other hand, if you manage to brand a certain number as part of a domain name and make sense of it, it can be done

    Numbers in domain names always strike me as immature. I can't support that "feeling" with a rational argument, but that's just how it seems to me. It reminds me of those idiots who type using SMS shortcuts.

    Ask yourself: How many of the most reputable sites have a number in their domain?
