Mary, unfortunately, there are no common TLD's available for the "KAA" domain. I have tried many registrars. I had bought some obscure ones that were "KAA.something" but the extensions were no better than the current domain and with no confusion.

Currently I do own at least a dozen domains that point back to this site though. Perhaps the easiest one is www.singkaa.com/ though. Up until a few years ago I had two distinct sites, one for desktop use that you see here and the other strictly for mobile use that was ONLY the directory. That domain was originally purchased for that now defunct site so I kept it as a redirect. That may make it easier for folks. I had announced that a long time ago, but most people these days I think just type it once and save the shortcut. That's what I do on my own phone even.....;)

Not sure if it is time for a change or not, but if so, I do understand the typing the long name, but when your looking for KAA, pretty much all you have to type now is KAA, so I think it is shortened actually, I really like the idea if you do change ti to Karaoke USA, kind of says it all, but then I believe if you type on a look up KAA it may not find it the same way

I included both a .us and a .info. I know you're not just .us anymore, but it's still good if that's your major area. .info is one that I think isn't used enough, but worth looking into.

As for the current domain, KAA is long name. It's great, and very descriptive, but it's not as good for search engines or mobile. If you get a new domain, definitely redirect KAA to it so you don't loose any visitors or links.

Thanks Alex! I replied to your email as well!

Folks, I have been pondering changing the name of my site. Mostly because "karaokeacrossamerica.com" is long to type on a mobile device....or even a PC for that matter. I don't want to lose the brand, but another reason is that I am considering something that also reflects the changing scope of what I do. In the beginning all I did was list karaoke shows. The site is way past that now. Aside from the forum, community, blog, links etc, I now have shows listed in Canada and Mexico as well!

What will be next?

I actually created an entirely new site for this purpose, singersvillage.com. It exists....I even had someone design me a logo for it! However, that was close to 2 years ago and it has since been relegated to a development site only. It is one of the options above, but I am not hellbent on using it for the next iteration of this site. I'm creating this poll because I want input from you folks......my community! I want YOUR input on what to do next!

Should the name change?

I decided that this question would be a good reason for a poll. So we have a few factors:
- Length of name
- Brand identity
- Would it require an additional name purchase
- Other…

If you choose "other" in the poll, please post what you think is a good name.

If you can think of "other" factors to consider in this venture please explain that as well!

Thanks for helping!
