Do you care if a site has a sub domain for example my site bitcoincasino.webs.com
 would you trust something like bitcoincasino.com more??

I am fine with the former.
The latter makes it easier to remember though

If you also own the main domain, it makes no difference to me. If you are sharing hosting with someone else, it increases the number of people I have to trust. In general though, it cost so little to get a separate domain that I'd go for it.

What we did is start on a subdomain then snap up the domain when we had a sale or two. We were lucky we didn't get domain parked or something though.

I would not want to visit it.

Either you are too cheap to get your own domain/hosting, in which case I don't want you holding or responsible for any of my funds.  Or you are too incompetent to set up your own domain/hosting, in which case I don't trust that you can responsibly secure your site against the most novice of hackers.

Set up your own domain.

The only thing I care about in an URL is the https:// part. Using plaintext http looks to me as though the admin is still sleeping in the 90's before security was important.

Apart from that make sure that the site itself looks professional and trustworthy. The current BTC sites look pretty amateurish on average Smiley
