- Name your website using your association name. Example: Sony.com, Tesla.com, and Amazon.com.
- Generic names are cool but most of them are reserved by domain registrant. So unless you have a fat wallet and willing to spend thousands for just a domain name, you can forget about registering single word (or phrases) as your domain name.
- Shop at Flippa to see if a desired domain is for sale.
- Avoid hyphenated domain names.
- Consider varies TLDs when the “.com” and “.net” if your desired domain names are taken. Example: WebHostingSecretRevealed.com is taken; try WebHostingSecretRevealed.biz 😉
- Both short and long domain names have their pros and cons. Short domains are easier to remember and easier to be ‘branded’; long domain names on the other hand may consist of more descriptive keywords (which allow your users to understand your business instantly).
- Domain name tools are helpful, sometimes. Try MakeWords, Dot-o-mator, and NameBoy.
- Think ‘FUN’ and think outside the box. Sometimes, your sense of humor is your best friend when if comes to picking up the right domain name – remember D-E-F-I-N-I-T-E-L-Y.com?
Well, choosing a domain may not be as simple as perceived but it doesn’t have to be such a grueling challenge either. I hope things are easier when you apply tips above.
