how to choose a good domain name
Below, I have listed 10 useful tips on how to choose a good domain name for your website or blog.
1. Use Keywords
Keyword research is very important, find best keywords that describe your business perfectly. Start playing with those keywords by making pairs and try to use the keywords in the beginning or end of the domain.
2. Easy to Remember
Select the domain which can say easily by you or other users. It should also be spelled easily, so the user can remember it how to spell it.
3. Easy to Type
Your domain should also be easy to type, avoid the names which includes those letters which we don’t type often like “Q”, “X”,”Z”.
4. Choose .com TLD
Having a .com domain name is ideal, the majority of internet users try to find your website name using .com extension. Other domains like .net, .org, .info etc. are also good to establish a website but .com is more preferable.
5. Keep it Short
When choosing a domain name, people usually don’t use the short words, they select a long name which is hard to remember. Short names also allow to create a better branding for your website.
6. No Hyphens and Numbers
Both Hyphens and numbers also make it hard to remember the domain name. Typing hyphens is bit odd and people ignore that kind of stuff.
7. Make Your Domain Expandable
Avoid the names that don’t allow to add more products in your website. For example, buybabysocks.com is a good name but what happens if you expand your business and start selling cloths and other stuff. So, choose a good domain name which is expandable and help you in future to expand your business too.
8. Domain Name Should
Belong to Your Business
The domain name should also belong to your business, for example, if the business is related to health then the name of website could be healthcare.com, kidshealth.com or familyhealth.com etc. Registering a domain which is not related to your business will not get favor from search engine and the target audience.
9. Check Competitors Names
Do proper research on your competitor websites and their domain names, how strong the names are and which keywords they used. Try to select more stronger but catchy name than your competitors.
10. Hire an Expert
If you are not able to find a suitable domain name for your business then hire an expert for domain registration. Do not take it lightly when choosing a domain for your business, it will be the identity of your business on the internet.
