The most important thing before representing your online activities is choosing a perfect domain name. A good domain is needed to target your audiences and also for search engines.
Top 7 tips before choosing a domain name
1. Find similar domain
This is the first step in business for performance online. So you have to a lot of research online and make an assignment about your competitors.
You can find a lot of resources online to find similar websites. Make a list of them and do your job.
2. Easy to remember domain name
Make sure your domain is easy to remember. Don’t keep odd spellings, hyphens, and numbers or other characters. Try to keep the domain name fresh and a meaningful word that is related to your business.
Using short-form is also bad for the audience’s attractions. Keeping domain as short as possible is always good.
Because a large domain looks nested but short form like “Hello Worlds” is looking so odd when it says “HW”
Your speech is a powerful marketing tool. So the domain represents your smartness.
3. Simple and Short
Keep the name as short and as simple as possible. A short name becomes easy to remember and also good for typing.
Don’t forget to keep your domain is meaningful and related to your brand and business.
4. A dot (.)Com is always prefer
I started a short story here. In 2012 when I started my first blog, it was beginning for me and my audiences also. As naturally, my traffic are also beginners.
In that time people use dot com although my domain is not using that extension.
For example, if your domain google.org than people are trying google.org.com or they use googleorg.com or something like that.
So .com is always preferred for me.
If your content is highly advanced like you make content about Python Programming, Artificial Intelligence, Hosting business etc there is no doubt that your audiences are also highly educated. So there will be no mistake like that.
But I also suggest you keep top-level domain .com .net and .org in your pocket.
5. Don’t Buy likely Domain
It’s looking very odd when you are buying a domain that is looking to an existing site.
For example google, facebook, twitter is top at this time. Now if you want to make a similar social networking site or forum and keep a name like faceboook, gooooogle- it’s not smart.
This type of variation will not be attracted to your audiences and it should avoid while choosing a domain.
6. Choosing Characters
7. Check name username on social media
Before registration any new domain, check popular social media username is available or not.
Social media is the first for marketing any digital product online. So it’s become easier if your username and a domain name are the same.
Like is your domain is DOMAIN.COM that try to keep your facebook fan page look like that FACEBOOK.COM/DOMAIN
At the end, make sure your brand and domain are seemingly at the same point. You can try an online business name finder which is to help you to get new and random ideas. You can get a lot of results within a short time.
Hiring ideas is not preferable but it helps you to generate new ideas.
