How to Choose a Domain Name?
How to find the right domain name for your Online business? These are probably the first questions that pop up into the mind of people planning to start their own websites.
If you are also struck with the dilemma of choosing the correct domain name for your online business/website, your search probably ends here. In this blog post of Clicks Bazaar, we are going to tell you exactly the same.
Choosing the best domain names for blogs and a personal website is one of the most crucial decisions for a website. Why? Well, just think about it. A domain name is the online identity of your website/brand.
So all this makes the selection of domain names a pretty important decision. Once chosen and the website is doing well, it can be a very difficult decision to change the domain name.
Here are the best practices for choosing a domain name for a blogging website/online business:-
#1 Keep it short and simple
Your domain name should be short and easy to remember. This increases the chances of recurring visitors to your website. And don’t forget, easier things to memorize and easier to share with others.
#2 Avoid the use of hyphens
There are proven case studies that people often don’t remember the hyphens between two words, so a hyphen should always be avoided.
#3 Avoid the use of numbers
People often use numbers in domain names. It is a bad practice as people often get confused when spoken the same way. It’s not clear from the domain name whether it’s a number or a phrase.
#4 Domain should represent your work/niche
Your domain name should speak for you. It should clearly represent what the website is all about. Clarity of thought should be the first thing a domain name should do.
#5 Go for a TLD
TLD refers to the Top Level Domain. This means that I always prefer a .com domain over a .in domain. People have a general habit of pressing ctrl+enter for a website.
Also, people, by default, consider that a domain is .com when you share the domain name. Say you tell someone. My website is “Clicks Bazaar.”
They will naturally consider it as ClicksBazaar.com when no other domain extension is specified. Also, if you are planning to have a big startup, getting all the related domain extensions is a must.
