Choosing Best Domain Name
Have you ever skipped over a site because the site was using free sub-domain and had nothing to do with what you were looking for? I know a domain name can make or break you. By picking a great .com url for your site, you'll make it easy for people to get an idea of what your site is about and for them to remember your name. Well, Every newbie question "how to choose best domain name for website". Not only best but also the brandable domain name. So, here is full guide for choosing great domain name for your site.

Go With Only .com Extension.

There are about 110 million .com, 15 million .net and 10 million .org domains on the web. But, .com domain are only recommended as top-level domain (TLD). So, make sure you are not loosing traffic from those people who have a thought that .com is only a domain. If you are serious with your online business so you will probably want to make your site a brand. Then, choose domain ending with .com.

Choose Unique Domain

It's tough to get unique domain but not possible. Having your domain matching with a popular site in your niche is an invitation to disaster. I highly recommend you not choose the domain which is similarity version of other domain.

Make It Easy To Type And Remember

If a domain need attention while typing due to length, hard word or immemorable sound then you may lose your value and traffic too. Remember word of mouth is good for a brand. You don't want to have domain name that people can't tell their friends because they could not remember the word. So, keep words in domain that comes in daily use and are not so long.

Give Full Explanation With Domain Name

When someone heard your domain name for the first time, they should be able to guess what will they find on your site. Let's take an example, don't take it wrong, you want to open a stationary site (especially pen) and you think "pen is land" is best. So, your domain name will be "penisland". Attention here, people may read "penis land". Don't get confused in these words.

Avoid Hyphens And Numbers

Both hyphens and numbers makes your domain name charmless. Although Search Engines distinguish keywords with hyphens, but it should not be homepage. People easily forget simple name and your domain name is with hyphens (or numbers). When a user is typing a domain which he heard from his friends, he is definitely not going to include hyphens, Ah!. So, I highly recommend you not to use hyphens or numbers in domain name.

Copyright Issues

This mistake is not too big and happened to much but if happened it can kill the brand. Some big companies never want their brand name to be included in any other domain. Make sure you are not infringing anyone's copyright. Here are some companies those have their own copyrights:- Facebook, Adobe, Wordpress. Go and check first here, www.copyright.gov.

Final Words

Choosing domain name for your site is a creative process, which take great attention. And the important you are not going change it daily. So, take the suggestion in mind and you will definitely choose a great, memorable, brandable and successful domain name for your site. I am sure that I have left some suggestion so it will be great if you remind me.

  5. while there are only a few cases when I actually go for the name of the website.
    Whatever the name of the website be, as long as it is providing the content that I am seeking, I will keep visiting in that.
    But, one point I will agree on is that the sites should have a name that is easy to remember.
    Thanks for the informative article.

  6. Hi Abhishek,
    I agree with your all points. But in the domain name we can also include numbers if it makes any sense. There are so many popular websites who uses numbers in their domain.
