Things to consider while choosing a domain name
Choosing a domain name is your first step towards building a kickass website and making it go viral! Before you get a web hosting plan, domain name registration is a must. You already own it or buy a new one on the spot.
Follow the tips to choose the right domain name for your website!
- No stop word: there is a range of stop words like in, for, of and etc that you should avoid using in you domain name. Stop words are generally ignored by Google so it’s preferable that your domain name has a keyword and that too, without a stop word.
- Appropriate domain name extension: if you are building a website for a school, it better end with an .edu because it’s appropriate. Nobody will sue you for not using it but it will be appropriate if you do. Similarly, if it’s an online store catering the needs of people in Australia only, then it will be better if it ends with .au.
- Must not match with already existing website: Research well so that you do not end with a failed plan of registering for a domain name that already exists!
- No use of characters: apart from alphabets and numbers, no other characters like hyphen are supposed to be used. Make your domain name attractive, short and easy to memorize.
Note that you can buy domain name and web hosting service from two different service providers. It’s not necessarily have to be the same provider for both the things.
