Tips To Pick The Perfect Domain Name
Choose Simple Name
Try to choose a simple domain name without confusing spelling because the simpler spell help to reach easily for your visitors.
Shorter Is Perfect
The shorter your domain name is, it is easier for your visitors to remember. Try to use the 6-10 characters.
Hyphens can really get confusing to remember the name of your website. So don’t use it
Use different Extensions
If you find the perfect domain name ending in .com then you have to use the extensions like .net, .org, .info, .us, etc.
If someone want to get own domain, and you see it is not in use, run a WHOIS to explore the owner & communicate your interest in getting the domain.
Make it Keyword Rich
Always try to choose the domain like a keyword, for example, if people are searching for “Texas motor events,” texasmotorevents.com could be a great domain to buy and by the keyword people can easily find your domain.
Avoid Numeral Substitutions
Don’t use the Numeral substitutions because this does not work. Tell someone your site is “advanc3.com” & you are guaranteed confusion.
Make it Brandable
Try to use the brandable domain because these days people are try to search domain by the name of the domain.
Use a Thesaurus
Look for alternative words if something you want already in use, this is great way to use the creative name. Always try to use the alternative word or creative word with proper spell.
If you are going to the selling products or providing services online then this is a great idea to use a domain which is related to your industry. It is a secondary “fall-back” if you cannot explore a domain to match your actual business name. In an instance like this industry-related domains are perfect for the online communities.
Avoid Copyright Issues
The last thing you want is authorized trouble over your domain name. Don’t use the domain name that is already in used.
