I think your logo has promise, it probably just needs some 
simplification. If you like, send me your source file (Inkscape SVG?) 
and I'll show you what I mean.

Don't worry about it, those expensive branding teams don't always get it 
right. A few years ago there was an organisation in the UK renamed 
'Consignia' - it was, er, the Post Office...

Quite right, the existing 'domain name' image doesn't work if you can't 
read English, while a true logo is universal. It does let you know what 
to type into your browser though :-)
