There is nothing wrong, it could be a solution, but let's see it from another point of view, those of the search engines: when we are looking for something in google, the first match of the entered keywords is related to the name of the domein, so if the company “tizioecaio” sells prosciutto, it will be difficult to found it on the first page of the search "selling prosciutto," while with certainty among the first results would come out the site (hypothetically.. any reference is a coincidence)

Indeed, if on the business card of tiziocaio is written the Web site, this will confuse their potential clients and partners.
