10 Tips for Choosing Your Domain Name
Try using keywords that describe your business and the services you offer. Include the keywords that people enter when searching for your products or services. It helps improve your rank on search engines (which increases traffic) and just makes more sense to your customers.
Target Your Area
If your business is local, consider including your city or state in your domain name to make it easy for local customers to find and remember.
Make it Easy to Type
Finding a domain name that’s easy to type is critical to online success. If you use slang (u instead of you) or words with multiple spellings (express vs. xpress), it may be harder for customers to find your site.
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.
Avoid Numbers and Hyphens
Numbers and hyphens are often misunderstood — people who hear your website address don’t know if you’re using a numeral (5) or it’s spelled out (five) or they misplace or forget the dash. If you need these in your domain, register the different variations to be safe.
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.
