Choosing the BEST Domain Name

Picking the right domain name for your business is important for success. Don’t rush and choose the wrong domain name. Reach out to others and get their thoughts on the domain name.

Choose .com domains first

.com is the most well-known domain name extension.

While it can be tempting to choose one of the newer extensions like .photography, .blog, .club, and many more, it is recommended to choose a .com domain name.

The biggest reason is that your users are conditioned to type .com at the end of every website and could end up on the wrong website or on a competitor’s website.

Keywords in your domain

Keywords play a huge role in search engine rankings. If you want your website to rank higher in Google, then having a keyword in the domain name can be very helpful.

Easy to pronounce and spell

When choosing a domain name, it’s very important that your domain name is easy to remember, spell, and pronounce.

Keep it short

It’s a good idea to keep your domain name short. Longer domain names can be harder to remember and easier to be mistyped.

Avoid Hyphens & Double Letters

Hyphenated and double letter domains are also prone to typos and the double letter or hyphen can be forgotten leading your users to an incorrect website.
