Having the best domain name for your business or a blog is very important in this article I am sharing some of the best
domain name buying tips for your website or a blog.
We never had a chance to choose our own name, but when it comes to selecting a domain name for your blog or a website you have ample of options and choices.
You need to select the best domain name because you will be using it to brand yourself or your business.
If you are a professional say insurance advisor, Designer, Doctor, Lawyer or a consultant and you promote your business in your own name it is OK to buy a domain name having your name in it, but I strongly advise you to create some brand, this will help you in marketing of it and also present you as a professional. For businesses you can buy domain name as your business name.
As per Wikipedia “A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS). Any name registered in the DNS is a domain name.” Source https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name
There are ideally three parts in a domain name (www.yourdomainname.com) www stands for World Wide Web followed by a period and then the name you select i.e. your domain name followed by a period and then com (in example here) this is known as extension. There are many different types of extensions available such as .net .biz .org etc also there are country specific domain name extensions such as .in .us .uk etc.
With .com being the most popular and search engine friendly most of the names you will think of might have already been taken up by someone else. You can try your luck and see if the name you are thinking of is available or not. You can use our domain name finder tool if you do not find the name in .com extension going for the other relevant extension is also good for example if you are a business you can go for a .biz or .net or even your country specific domain extension such as .in .us .uk etc
Having a right domain name is also useful from search engine optimisation (SEO) point of view. You can use your product or service name as a domain name too and this really helps in SEO.
Some important domain name buying tips for your website or blog and things to keep in mind while buying a domain name are
- It must be short
- Easy to remember
- Avoid misspelling’s
- Do not use – (hyphens)
- Do not use others brand name in your domain name
- Use the right extension (like say if you are a business avoid using .org its mainly for organistions)
- It must be easy to pronounce (Think about this because when you will tell someone on phone it must be sound proper)
- Use numbers in your domain name only if it makes sense (eg I have used 360IGS 360 here means 360 degree integrated digital solutions)
