Six tips for choosing the best domain name
Choosing a domain name is like choosing a company’s name, it takes lots of consideration and thought. You should make sure that your domain name is super easy to find and remember
I put these tips together to guide you to pick the best domain name for you.
- Keep it short. If your domain name is too long, your customers might misspell it, and it might take them to another site. Keep your domain name short and simple to recall.
- Easy to type. When your domain name is too cumbersome and hard to type, you get the tendency of losing customers. Visitors should be able to spell and type your domain name without cracking their brains. So if the domain name you are thinking of is too lengthy and cumbersome, you have to simplify it.
- Use keywords. Although it is optional, you can use keywords in your domain name; it would help improve your ranking. If you decide to use keywords in your domain name, put the keywords at the beginning of the name, that is where the keyword will be most powerful for your ranking.
- Research it and avoid trouble. Do your investigations well before you choose your domain name. Make sure the name you have chosen is not copyrighted, trademarked or being used by some other company. If you don’t do your research well, you could end up in a legal mess that could cost you lots of money and even your domain. So make sure you do your research work well before choosing your name.
- Protect and build your brand. Apart from purchasing your domain name, you should also purchase other misspelled versions of your domain name. You should never forget to buy various domain extensions. This would prevent other companies from purchasing other misspelled versions of your domain name and other domain extensions. This would ensure that your customers are directed to your website even if they mistype your domain name or they use another domain extension with your domain name.
- Avoid using numbers and hyphens in your domain. Your domain should be super easy to pronounce and spell. So why trying to add numbers and hyphens.
