...or if I have to type it, since it's shorter.

To enter bills, I use www.eurobilltracker.com, because it's automatically coming when I type "eurob".

But with advertising, I prefer www.eurobt.eu (that's what I voted), because I think you get more members if it's not looking commercial (like www.eurobilltracker.com does).

I do too.

And I think it should be at least an .eu-Domain, because what on god's green earth is more "European" then EBT? That's what .eu is for.

.com and .eu look both english speaking for most new users/visitors.
many people dont understand english, so they will not visit eurobilltracker.

it is possible to build some extra pages ( www.eurobilltracker.eu/de or www.eurobilltracker.eu/nl ) that redirect to the national startpage?

Better yet, de.eurobilltracker.eu or something similar for all supported languages.

I think the EBT homepage already honors the user's browser language settings.
If this holds true, there's IMHO no need for language specific entry points.

But we are talking about people who are not registered yet.
They dont know that their browser or ebt chooses the correct language.
And if they see a .com address they will not visit a page when they think its not in a language they understand.

And subdomains are not so often in use, so /de after the .com is the better way. maybe both is possible. but not in this way: http://de.eurobilltracker.eu/nl :D

Maybe it's just me, but I would not assume that a .com address is necessarily in some "foreign" language. Even more so the .eu addresses. As for my own "usage pattern", when I need to type the URL, I use eurobt.eu ... Short and easy. :)

I prefer http://www.eurobilltracker.com
Because that's the name of the site, and the name which everybody knows.

But when I write the url on a very used banknote I always use http://www.eurobt.eu, because it's a lot shorter.

I never type or write the URL, but if I have to I will use http://www.eurobilltracker.com

I would prefer www.ebt.eu or : www.ebt.fi www.ebt.de www.ebt.nl etc.

www.ebt.nl already exsist :wink:
