So you aren’t sure about how to choose your domain name? It’s okay, there are a lot of people who go through that same struggle. We at Yesmam.net Hosting and Maintenance want to help select the best domain for your new website. Here are 5 tips to help navigate those difficult waters.
1.Make it easy to type and remember
Many people make the mistake of creating a domain name too complex. Deciding to include alternate slang spellings in your domain name is risky. Stick to the general spellings of the words you are using. Also, make sure it’s memorable. Be creative and come up with something that will stick in someone’s mind. Examples – Wesalecars.com <- Correct | Wesalealotofcarz.com <- Wrong
2.Keep it short and sweet
The more letters needed to type out the name the harder it is for someone to remember it. Try to keep your domain name under 10 letters. We know that this may not be possible in some cases, but if you can keep it short.
What is it that you do? Are you a baker? Great! We like pastries. We also suggest your name include what you do. Use the word “bake” or “cake” or “pies” in your domain name.
Example – Webake.com <- Correct | WeRbakers.com <-Wrong
4.Include Your Area
If you live in Atlanta, GA then it is a good idea to include in in the domain name. It helps tremendously with your SEO. It’s also easily “trusted” by potential clients doing targeted searches for someone who provides your same service.
Example – Atlantspainters.com <-Correct | Jeffersonpaintersgroup.com <- Wrong
5.No Number No hyphens
Please, please, please stay away from numbers or hyphens in your domain name. It’s hard to tell people your domain name and have to mention “dash” or have to say “the number 4”. People tend to go this route after they have found their desired domain has been taken. Don’t alter your desired domain because once you do, you start to loose domain integrity.
Example – Nonumbers.com <-Correct | No-numbers4u.com <-Wrong
