Changing domain name and including a number?


I run an online animation school called, Rocket Sky 3D Animation School.

I recently changed my domain from to, thinking that a .com would be far more beneficial in an international market.

Did I make a mistake by including a number in my domain, even if it is 3D?

Thanks for your help!

People often change domain names.  The issues arise when the migration is blundered.

Did you do a wildcard redirect ?

Did you verify all backlinks get redirected to the new appropriate pages ?

Lots of questions...

If you did a proper migration to the new domain then you should recover your traffic in a few weeks.

The dot com does give some opportunities in the international market, especially if you decide to support additional languages.

Good advice?
