CHOOSING A DOMAIN NAME – TOP TIPS AND THINGS TO CONSIDER!
1. Easy to Type, Easy to Remember
Less is more, short and simple. Avoid customers mistyping, misspelling, or easily forgetting your long and complex domain name.
2. Be Descriptive
Ideally, let users know who you are and what you do just by seeing your domain name.
Good: CareerBuilder.com, AutoTrader.com and WebMD.com
Not as good: Monster.com, Amazon.com, Zillow.com
Even though these are universal brands, these companies acknowledge more brand investment because of their unintuitive names.
3. If you’re a Local Business, Target your area
Consider including your city or state in your domain name – easy for local customers to find and remember.
4. Avoid numbers and hyphens
Numbers and hyphens are often misunderstood and misspelled.
Bad: 5and10.com, My-Three-Sons.com
If you have to explain how to type in your site, that’s a fail.
5. Use an appropriate domain name extension
Extensions such as .com, .org, or .edu have specific uses. Choose one appropriate for your business.
6. New Top Level Domains
The .com domain has been around for so long, so it can be pretty tricky to find a suitable available domain name. New top-level domains offer a great opportunity to register short and relevant names.
.co : an abbreviation for company, commerce, and community.
.info : informational sites.
.photography – art-based
.nyc – local to the big apple
.guru – for the wizards among us
.biz : business, commercial, or e-commerce sites.
.me : blogs, resumes or personal sites.
7. Use Common Sense.
The business owners at “Experts Exchange” or “Speed Of Art” should exercise due diligence. Think about it.
