Neither - they are not proper domains.

Thankyou all for your replys, you have convinced me to go out and get a proper
web address. As customsites.com is already taken what would be my next best option.

Rather then something overally obvious and common such as "customsites" Go for somthing a little more obscure or interesting or somthing. Even if it is somthing that isnt related to what you do at all but that is brandable. probably the only reason i can see for going for somthing common and obvious is the type in value.

Maybe an idea could be csstudios.com (i dont know if it is available) but it could stand for Custom Sites Studios. Just try thinking outside the box.

I would still keep the domain redirect even though you do get a domain name. Looking at the two I recommend IsOur.biz cause it's free and ad free and makes sense.

Normally I would agree, but customsites.qn.com doesn't "say" anything to me; customsites.isour.biz would be fine except that it is a dot-biz, which has pretty much become accepted as the domain if choice for spammers. It's probably not a connotation you want associated with your business.

I have never heard that .biz is directly associated with spam. I have been in the domain business for several years and this has NEVER came up. ".biz" domains are for businesses and is not necessarily associated with spam. There are probably more .com domains that spam then there are .biz.
