When you go to obtain website hosting, you will need to choose a domain name for your website. This can be done through your host, which is likely to offer you a discount on the domain, such as a percentage off of the price, or even a free domain when you choose them for your website hosting needs. The most ideal domain would be your business name. However, for many reasons that might not be a possibility.
Your domain name is your website’s calling card. It is the first thing seen when a person visits your site, it can even be a deciding factor as to rather or not the person will even visit. That is right; a person will decide whether to visit your website or not, based on the website address (domain name).
When you are looking for website hosting, you often consider domain names last. Your website domain name is perhaps one of the most important aspects of your entire website. You could have the flashiest, most professional design on the entire internet, however, without the right domain name all of that will be pointless.
Here are a few tips, that might be of help choosing your domain:
*Choose Your Domain Extension Carefully
*Using Keywords in an Effective Manner
*Make sure your domain is simplistic to say and spell
*Keep Your Domain Name Short
*Pick a Domain Name That’s Flexible
*Choose a Brandable Name
*Use Domain Name Generators
When you do choose a few names, look at each one and determine whether you, yourself, would be able to remember it. Would that name stick in your mind? Would it tell you exactly what the business has to offer?
