We had been thinking to re-brand 8 years old website chessstream.com to chess.stream. We claimed the domain last week. We are still redirecting the new name to old domain, but we will re-do the website to new design anyway. We will see if changing the name does not drop the Google rank. Hopefully not dropping, and can be better with short name. If Google indexes the gtlds as a keyword, it is better with short name. We will see.
I know some of dot com fanatics won't like gtlds, but for me chess.stream is cooler
