Choosing a suitable domain name for your online business is another important aspect to consider when first building your online presence.
While every word in the dictionary is now registered, picking the right combination can be the difference between a successful domain name and a weak one.
Before searching for, choosing and purchasing your domain name below, you may find the following information very helpful in making your decision!
- If possible, secure a domain name with your business name included “www.mybusiness.com”. If .com is gone, consider. net or .org. While these are not optimal, they can offer you a branded presence. Also consider adding a hyphen between words such as “www.my-business.com” Obviously .com is best but If this is not possible, try and find a name suggesting what you do. for example. “www.mybusinessdoes.com”.
- If you are able to secure your domain name in a .com TLD. We highly recommend you secure several others such as .org, .net and if possible national TLD’s such as .ca (Canada) .co.uk (United Kingdom) and .de (Germany). While some countries are restricted to companies with addresses in their own country, many are not and we recommend you take advantage of those that don’t.
- Try and keep your domain name short (2-4 words) and memorable. Try and use keyword rich URL’s.Google, Yahoo and MSN all index differently but when keywords are used in your URL, your chances of coming higher in the searches increases. Do not use unique spelling, difficult words or hard to remember catch phrases. Simple, catchy and concise is best.”www.whywearethebest.com”.
- Be aware of copyright infringement when choosing your domain name. If your name is gone as .com you can use .net but if you are in the same business as the .com business, you will lose visitors and possibly be infringing on their copyright. If a word is trademarked, you cannot register it either. 99.9% of businesses will have registered their trademark but if you are unsure, it is wise to do a little investigating.
