hints on registering a good domain name

Searching and registering your website’s domain name requires all the due diligence you can give to it. The task of deciding on a domain is an important one and must be giving serious attention it deserves. It is not always a palatable thing to change a domain name for a website midway into a it’s online journey.

Make it easy to remember. This is why many entrepreneurs choose domains with their business name in it. Some will even not name their businesses until they’ve secure a suitable domain name that reflects in both.

Be careful you don’t use someone else trademark/copyright/brand in your domain name or you may be forced to give it up if the copyright owner file for infringement against you or your business.

The shorter the better.  Do have that in mind as you go about your domain registration exercise, that the the shorter the domain names are, the easier for people to remember. In a research by DataGenetics.com, a blog by Nick Berry, the most common domain name length was approximately 12 characters. This is corroborating the fact that longer domains are not fashionable. We recommend you stay within a 15 characters band.

If your business is a local one, consider including your locale, city or country in your domain so local customers can quickly see where you are. Check the list of local geographic domain extensions — .london, .nyc, .berlin — to see if there’s one for your area.

Try as much as possible to avoid numbers or hyphens in your domain registration. Anyone who hears your web address won’t know if you’re using a numeral 7 or “seven”. If your business name has a number in it, register both versions i.e with the number and with the number in words. Hyphens (dashes) are just asking for trouble and generally look unprofessional. Avoid it.

Register similar or misspelled domains ahead, so that copycats don’t have the chance to register them later in other to distract or draw traffic away from your successful business.
