Navigating the world of domain names can be a daunting task. With countless caveats and hosting companies out there, it’s easy to be overwhelmed or worse, make a mistake that could ultimately cripple your business. Here are some tips to help you through the domain name registration process:
Include a location or keywords in your domain name, if you can.
If your business focuses on a geographic region, try to put the location into the name of your domain. For example, if your business is located in Denver and provides electrical services. Try registering something along the lines of DenverElectricServices.com
Don’t use dashes, abbreviations or numbers in your domain name.
You have to keep in mind that often times your domain name will be verbally mentioned which could create situations where your domain name is hard to remember or mis-interpreted (if abbreviations, numbers or dashes are used). Keep your domain name symbol by registering a domain name that is short and easy to remember.
