Domain name tips - choosing the right domain name

Your domain name (web address) is the essence and key for establishing your online identity. It is this address, which the visitors make use of to learn more about your products, offerings, and services.

Your Domain Name Should Be Your Website Name

Naming your site after your domain may seem obvious to some of you, but you'll be surprised to learn that not every website is named after the domain name even when the webmaster owns that domain name.

Naming a site after its domain name is important, for the simple reason that when people think of your website, they'll think of it by name. If your name is also your URL, they'll automatically know where to go.

Long or short domain names?

It is helpful to attain the best possible search engine placement. Actually, simple and shorter domain names are sure to stay in the minds of visitors and bring them back to your site.

Certain character limitations/restrictions are applicable to domain names. The permitted length of a particular domain name is restricted to 63 characters and the minimum length allowed is two. In some countries, domain names up to 67 characters are permitted.

Hyphenated names?

Most countries allow using hyphens, numerals, and special characters in their domain names, but it is not recommended to begin or end the domain name with a hyphen symbol.
