If you are just starting your own website, then no matter what kind of website it is, whether it is a blog, ecommerce or a website showcasing your business, it is really important that you come up with the right name that will represent both you and your business in the right light and help you get more viewers, and potentially customers. So here are a few tips you should consider following when registering your domain name.
This is very important because it is important that you distinguish yourself and your brand from others. Since there are millions of domain names out there, and some of them might be for business that have a name similar to yours, it is key to have a name that is unique, catchy and memorable. It is also a good idea to test out your domain name idea with friends, family and even loyal customers to see if they also can associate it with your brand or business.
Make the name short and easy
When choosing a domain name for you to register, focus on making it both short and easy. This means avoiding a name that is difficult to spell, as well as one that can be easily misspelled, avoiding using slang words because they also might cause confusion when it comes to the spelling, and you might also want to consider avoiding number and hyphens. Avoid numbers since people might not know if they are meant to be written numerically or spelled out, and a hyphen might cause confusion as to where it is supposed to go in the domain name.
Make sure it is safe to use
By the domain name you register being safe to use, we mean for you. Before you actually register it, you should check that the name you have chosen is not copyrighted or trademarked, because that has more potential of losing you money than making you any since you might have to deal with lawsuits. If it is an expired domain that you are thinking of getting, then you should check that you can advertise on it, that it has a good search engine ranking, as well as that it was not previously used to spam people, because that also might put customers off visiting the site.
Now all that is left for you to do is follow these few simple rules and decide on a domain name to register. Always go for something that represents you, and even more importantly, something that will represent your business or brand in the best way possible.
