how to Choose a Good domain name

Choose a Good domain name


1.Make the Domain Unique

Having your website confused with a popular site already owned by someone else is a recipe for disaster. Thus, I never choose domains that are simply the plural, hyphenated or misspelled version of an already established domain. Even after years of branding,

2.Only Choose .Com Available Domains

If you're not concerned with type-in traffic, branding or name recognition, you don't need to worry about this one. However, if you're at all serious about building a successful website over the long-term, you should be worried about all of these elements, and while directing traffic to a different domain is fine.

3.Make it Easy to Type

Remember that word-of-mouth and SERPs dominance marketing (where your domain consistently comes up for industry-related searches) both rely on the ease with which the domain can be called to mind.

4. Keep it short

If your domain name is long and complex, you risk customers mistyping or misspelling it. Short and simple is the way to go.

5.Avoid numbers and symbol

Numbers and hyphens are often misunderstood — people who hear your website address don’t know if you’re using a numeral (1) or it’s spelled out (one) or they misplace or forget the dash. If you need these in your domain, register the different variations to be safe.

6.Be memorable 
There are millions of registered domain names, so having a domain that’s catchy and memorable is essential. Once you’ve come up with a name, share it with close friends to make sure it sounds appealing and makes sense to others.

7.Research it

Make sure the name you've selected isn't trademarked, copyrighted or being used by another company. It could result in a huge legal mess that could cost you a fortune, as well as your domain!
