The 3 Guidelines I Wish I Had When I Registered my Domain Name

Registered my Domain Name

Your domain name the first thing that your customers will notice about your brand and also the thing they will need to remember in order for them to come back to your website, which is why it’s very important for you to come up with the most creative and unique domain name possible when registering it. If you feel like you’re stuck and you don’t really know where to start, here are a few guidelines to help you out when you are registering your domain name.

Include your business name or product name in your domain name

Presumably, when you decide to take your business online, you are doing it in order to increase your business and make money and in that case, having your business or product name in your domain name is a must when you are registering it. This pretty much acts as a keyword in the sense that search engines such as Google will show your website the second that customers type in that word. Let’s say you are in the business of selling keyboards, if you have the word keyword in the domain name when you are registering it, every time someone types the word into a search engine, your website will come up.

Always go for a .com extension

If you decide to go for a .net, .org or a .info for a certain reason, then definitely go for it. But if you don’t have a particular reason for doing this, then we would definitely recommend you forget about any of those extensions and always opt for the .com one when registering your domain name. Another tip when it comes to this would be that if you see that everything is ok with the domain name you have settled for and you see that the .com extension is available for you to buy, do not hesitate and get is straight away, since a lot of people have made the mistake of waiting and have then found themselves losing the domain name to someone who didn’t hesitate.

Keep in meaningful and skip the jokes

Even though registering a domain name that is short and snappy may sound interesting to you and some of your friends, for the rest of the world that might not the case. This is in correlation with the first point where we talked about search engines such as Google. Although your friends might get the fun factor behind the domain name, engines like Google most likely won’t understand it and that means that it won’t come up in the results when people do an engine search.

If you take care to really follow these guidelines, then you will probably find the whole ordeal of registering the perfect domain name very easy. And even though we said that the domain name should be creative and unique, it should also be something that is meaningful and represents your business in the best way possible.
