Suppose you want to create a website for your business, and you take every right step but you end up naming it “umbwembwe_tumwemumbwe_kuemuvenve_osas.com”.
This sin will never be washed off your hands, and you have to live with it for the time it’s there.
Keep reading our guide, so that you don’t end up cursing yourself for this huge mistake.
1) Reputed domain name providers:
Always make sure that you register the domain name under legitimate registrars having an authentic website with a 24/7 customer support.
Websites like Namecheap.com, GoDaddy.com, Register.com are some of the renowned domain name providers.
2) Choose it according to your business:
Choose the name of the website according to the business it is based on. For example, if you are trying to sell different products through your website, name it a little closer to “shop”. Like shopaholics.com, shopmojo.com or anything like that.
This step is good for choosing a domain name for SEO purpose.
3) Make it short:
The domain name should not be confusing or too long so that people have a hard time remembering it.
Most of the successful websites have short and catchy names like Google, facebook, twitter, Amazon etc.
4) Avoid symbols:
Never use symbols, numbers or any other uncommon character, this will only lose you potential customers, as they will not be able to memorize the name due to the uncommon character.
5) Pick up a niche-centric domain name:
Your domain name should reflect the content that the visitor is looking for, this is also a great leap to get some high traffic on your website.
Mostly this way people pick domain names for microblogs. This helps in both SEO and naming.
6) Make a list:
Always have some alternatives in mind while registering a domain name, as the name you want might be unavailable or a premium one.
So do make a proper list of names you want for your website and try to get the best name available for you.
7) Choose appropriate extension:
Domain extensions like .com, .net, .org, .biz etc are also provided to you by the company, but .com was the first and is still the best extension for a commercial website. So always go for “.com”.
8) Be quick:
“It’s better late than never” doesn’t fit here, domain names are cheap and easy to get, and every moment a name is getting registered on the internet.
Now do not wait anymore so that the name you want is taken by some other company. Grab a page, start thinking and take actions as soon as possible. Also, share this with your startup partner whom you would like to work with.
