Choosing the right domain name can almost feel as difficult as choosing a name for your child. Possibly, even harder. It’s not a case of loving a name you read in a book or the name of an old school friend. You can’t copy someone else’s name. A domain name can’t be the same as another. It has to be something that only exist the one time.
There are so many things to think about when it comes to your domain name. It needs to be something that people will remember and something that is easy for people to spell when they are searching for it. You want it to look good as a logo and on business cards and even your product packaging.
When choosing your domain name, it’s always a good idea to make a list of names that you like and have a look to see what already exists. If one is available, that’s wonderful. If not, have a play around using the words you like in different combinations to see if you can come up with one that is available for you to buy.
A domain that is short, punchy, and to the point is generally considered the way to go. Using a keyword in there will also help with you in search rankings. For example, if you are a florist, you could go with something like Floristry By (your own name) or if you make candles it could be Moonlight Candle Co.
Some people decide to use their own name as their domain name for simple blog style websites and even large companies such as Monica Vinader, Armaini and Calvin Klein to name a few. I hope this has given you a little insight into choosing the right domain name. You can use our domain search to see if something you like is available to use here.
