I didn't asked my last question the right way. Here's what the situation is: I have a product named "Melissa". The product is a voice-controlled home automation system. In order to control the system, you should refer to Melissa as in example: "Melissa, make me some coffee". I want to buy a domain but melissa.com is already taken and the owner is not willing to sell it. Do you have any suggestions what the domain should be? Old domain: http://modernsteward.com Keywords: Melissa(!), home automation, smart home
Best solution would be to come up with a new brand (in your case also brand persona) name that you can truly own. Sounds like a few steps back, but everything else is just patching up the problem, which will increase as your company grows and it would save you lots of headaches and money in the future while enabling your customers to find you...and yourself to own a unique brand.
