Is there any advantage or disadvantage to having a hyphen in your
domain name? Will the search engines index your hyphenated URL any
diffrently because of it?

Thanks,

I find search engines ignore hyphen's and other punctuation so it shouldn't
be a problem. It might stop a wild guess at your domain name working
though, so if you can get the required name hyphen free it is probably
better for you.
