Many people who have come to my EMR and HIPAA blog have probably wondered why the address of the website is www.crashutah.com. Honestly, there is only one reason. I’m cheap!! I’ve had crashutah.com for a while and so it was free to host my blog on the same site. Today is my birthday and so I got myself a birthday present. I bought 2 different domain names that I could use for this site. I need your help to decide which one I should use. Here’s the 2 choices:
www.emrandhipaa.com
www.emrhipaa.com
So, they are pretty much the same, but I want to know which one is better. I think the first one is better since it is really the name of the site and so it matches nicely. I like the second one because it has fewer letters and would be easier to type. There is also the question of which one google would like better. In the end, they probably won’t care too much. If they cared too much about the domain name then I wouldn’t be getting all the google searches that I’m getting with crashutah as the domain name.

Let me know which you like better by just clicking the comment button below and telling me which one I should use as the main one. I also want to thank those of you out there that avoided purchasing these while I waited to purchase them. Today I went to buy a domain name I’d been looking at for a month and it was bought yesterday night. I couldn’t believe it. I was so mad. Mostly mad at myself for not buying it earlier.
