Before you rush out and choose your domain name, there are onsiderations you should be aware of when registering your domain.
- Make it DOT COM. The ‘.com’ extension is the one people think of first when they think of web addresses, so go with it.
- Make it Relevant. Include at least one, preferably two, of
your important ‘keywords’ in your name.
- Make it Memorable. Short domains are easy to remember, easier to type and far less susceptible to mistakes which is good than longer domains.
- Avoid Hyphens. It’s easy to forget the hyphens when typing a name. When people recommend your site to their friends verbally, having hyphens in your domain name leads to more potential errors than when the name does not contain hyphens.
- Avoid a name that you need to spell out. It is better to have a domain name without a confusing spelling to make it easy for your website visitors to remember.
- Take care not to infringe on a trademark. before buying that name, do some research to make sure you won’t run into trouble later. But don’t worry trademark research and information can be obtained at:
