Currently I'm using usboard.org (just an example) for 10 years now.
DOT com isn't an option as it's for sale as premium domain for $65k.

With the information provided, I cannot reasonably answer your question. Instead, I'll put the following these three questions to you:
  1. Why do you wish to change domain name?
  2. Is your website an 'organization' of some kind, or is it more commercial in nature?
  3. If you are already considering a domain change, why not consider a completely new domain rather than just a change to the TLD?

To make it shorter and easy to remember.

Just my own.

I would like to retain my primary name/keyword.

I dunno. Still not really enough to go to hazard a meaningful opinion. What about the .NET? It can straddle a lot things. If available, how good a fit would that TLD for your website? I think, in general, .NET is stronger than a .US or .COM.US.

SEO is not high on my priority list so setting that to one side for a moment I'm not convinced that a change of domain for an established forum is likely to be of any real benefit.

I visit quite a number of forums on a daily basis but I doubt I could easily find them by keying in the URL. If I find a forum I want to revisit I'll bookmark it and it will forever be known to me by the bookmarked name, not the URL. I suspect that's the case for the majority of users.

The only good reasons that I can think of for a domain name change is a rebrand or if SEO really is a major factor.

Yesterday i bought a 5 letter domain tld = ltd. Also bought 5 letter with ltd at the end of 5 letter and we have .org, .com, .info, and .net. SEO is what you make of the site users should not suffer because of SEO. Now i need to develop the site.
