Selecting The Right Domain Name
« on: February 05, 2014, 04:34:00 PM »
I would like to register a domain name for a website that I am planning to have. I was keen on knowing what are the important aspects that one should take into consideration while selecting a domain name? It would be great if you provide me some information on this.

Selecting a domain name looks easy but it is quite a task! Here are some important aspects that you need to consider while selecting a domain name:

* Select a domain name that reflects what you do
* Think of a domain name that people will remember
* If possible, use your main keyword as the domain name
* Avoid using numbers in your domain name
* Use the right domain name extension
* Don't use too long domain names
* Research the current rules and trademarks on domain names and do not violate them[/li][/list]

Hope this information helps :)

I would like to suggest one point here - If possible, target your area! If you are running a local business, consider including your city name, state name or area name. This will make it easier for the local customers to find your website and remember it.

Make sure that you have a unique domain name. If your domain name is confused with any other domain name, then that might be the recipe of disaster. Avoid using the plural, hyphenated or misspelled versions of the domain names that are already in use.

.com is the first choice of every person registering a domain name. But not every person will get his perfect .com domain, as many are already registered for multiple years. I know domains registered for 10 years as well. There are many new tlds released this year. You should consider these new set of tlds as well.

There are many new domain name TLDs coming up and many people are opting for them. If you contact your hosting service provider, they will list the new TLDs for you.

Well, to give you my ideolofy to select a domain name, I will opt for a domain name that is funny and interesting. For example for an online shopping website, I will prefer a domain name like shopshop.com or shoptillyoudrop.com.... 8)

I would also like to give my suggestions for a domain name, I would go for shoponomics.com or shippyshoppy.com. Domain name also depends on the type of website you are planning to create.
