My company name is long, and at first I thought it would be fine, but I'm running into space issues and its quite frankly annoying having to write it out (it also makes my stationary look crummy) right now its firstname.lastname@example.org I would like to change it to email@example.com. How do I do that? and then still get the mail forward from the original address?
While that is certainly possible, you would need to also control the cdds.com domain. I see that the domain is already owned by someone else currently. This is also true of cdds.net, .org, .biz, .us. Four-digit domains are very difficult to find available.
You could still go with shorter domain names, such as cottonduck.org, .biz, or .us (.com, .net, and .info are already taken).
