I will try to explain it as much as I can, so please bear with me. I am looking for a word which means/implies "I am here" but not for humans, please consider the sentence below:

Using "SomeCompany.com" instead of "somecompany.com" looks much better as capitals letters make your company name say "I am here" within the given domain.

What I am thinking is "stand out" as a possible word. But getting more ideas from experts is always the best.

I'm afraid I don't have a clue what you mean. Can you rephrase? – Billy Sep 17 '11 at 2:32
Rather than trying to find another word meaning "I am here", you can reword your phrase to say "....as capital letters emphasize on your company's presence within the given domain." – Bill Sep 17 '11 at 2:55
@Billy: Please consider the Bill's sentence. It seems he understand s what I meant. – Tarik Sep 17 '11 at 3:02
@Braveyard: Okay, I now understand that you are trying to replace the phrase 'say "I am here"' in your quotation. But I can't really guess at what sort of thing you're trying to replace it by. I don't know what it means for a company name to say "I am here". That doesn't mean anything in my mind, I'm afraid. – Billy Sep 17 '11 at 3:08
@Billy: What do you think about "stand out"? Could it be a appropriate choice in this case? – Tarik Sep 17 '11 at 3:10

You could say that:

"capital letters give your company name extra visibility", or

"capital letters draw attention to your company name", or

"capital letters make your company name more eye-catching", or

"capital letters make your company name catch the eye".

I think that answer it pretty enough for me. Thanks Hellion, as always. – Tarik Sep 17 '11 at 3:43
