    I seek your advice on domain name

    dear colleagues,
    I am about to get a domain for to be founded institute:
    Silicon Valley Institute of Engineering and Management
    This is rather a long name and I was playing to figure out a good, readable, intuitive, an diet short domain name for it (SV-IEM, SVIEM, SiliconValleyIEM...)
    Please, do advise me a catchy and short domain.

    It depends on whether you expect people to remember your URL and enter it directly, or whether your are choose the domain mostly for SEO value.

    I like to do both.

    I choose a long URL with my important keywords, and then a short memorable URL that redirects to the long domain.

    sviem.edu would be the perfect choice, I guess.

    .edu's are not available to the public so to speak. For a .edu you have to be accredited for one. That would be the most effective domain for the OP but its probably not an option at this time.

    Pick the most common word people start with. If silicon valley is regularly used then keep it. Would say its the siliconvalleyiem as its the best way to describe the "iem"
