In this article, we’ll share all tips you need to get domain name ideas, pick the best
domain name, and register your new domain.
Key Points to Pick Domain
There are plenty of new domain name extensions available today, from the original .com, .net and .org to niche extensions like pizza, .photography, and even .blog.
We always recommend choosing a .com domain name.
While it can be attractive to come up with clever blog names using new extensions, .com is still the most established and credible domain name extension.
Keywords play a significant role in a domain. By using keywords in your domain name, you tell the search engines what your website is about. Together with quality content and good user experience, keywords in your domain can help you rank higher in Google.
It is very hard to find a good domain with your target keywords, that’s not already taken.
You will need to be creative and combine your keywords with other words to make your domain show up.
While keywords are significant, don’t go overboard with domain length. It’s healthier to have a domain name that’s short and striking.
We endorse keeping your domain name under 15 characters. Lengthier domains are
harder for your users to remember.
Not to mention, users will also be more inclined to entering typos with lengthier domain names which can cause loss traffic.
That’s why it’s a good idea to have your domain length short.
You should be capable of easily share your domain name when speaking as well as
writing. You never know when you’ll be asked to share your domain name in person.
Your website domain name must be unique, so you can stand out in your readers’ minds. It’s smart to research other website in your position and find out what domain names they’re using.
