BlueFur Name Review

Adding onto my previous post on BlueFur.Com, I’m going to review the name BlueFur (partly because they’re offering a free domain to the first 50 people to review the name BlueFur 😛 ).

I think that MonsterHosting.Ca changing it’s name to BlueFur.Com was a good move, although too bad it wasn’t changed for more positive reasons. Them changing their name to BlueFur does open up their “service window” to include much more then just hosting based, as they’re no longer restrained by the “hosting” part in the name.

Also, their new name is quite ingenious, it has a good tie in with their “mascot” too, since the mascot does have blue fur. 😛

I think that MonsterHosting was a good name, but I think that BlueFur is an even better name. Although, I have noticed that they’re advertising BlueFur as BlueFur.Com and not .Ca as they had with the MonsterHosting name. But, that might open their market more because people from other countries besides Canada will probably choose BlueFur as a host because it doesn’t have a .Ca domain (well, maybe, it’s hard to tell). Although, I believe you can access BlueFur through .Ca and that you could have accessed MonsterHosting through .Com.

Although, to be truthful, the name BlueFur doesn’t make it at all obvious what sort of general services they offer, at first look of the name. But, their website does make it quite obvious, so if people are curious enough to go to BlueFur without knowing what services they offer, they will quickly find out.

Since BlueFur does offer the best hosting for the best price. It really doesn’t matter what their name is, it’s still the same great service, as always. They have actual 24/7 support, their servers are fast, they don’t load their servers up with thousands of accounts like some hosting companies like to do, they’re Canadian, they have servers in Canada, and I could go on for quite awhile.But, I won’t, because you can just go check them out.

Overall, I think the new name BlueFur will open up even more business for them and that it is a sweet name that also allowed them to check their awesome mascot. The name BlueFur is unique (you would’ve gotten barely any results for BlueFur on Google a few weeks ago), cool, different, and sounds smooth.
