How to select the right domain name for your website


Are you tired of searching for a perfect domain for your business? Unable to choose the best domain? Read this article to know how to choose a domain that suits your business and attracts your customers.

Perfect Domain name
We do compromise in several aspects in our daily life and it may or may not show any great impact. But when it comes to choosing a domain name either for a business or a blog, it matters. So, how to choose a perfect domain name for your blog? What are the aspects that you should consider? Domain name reflects the purpose of your website i.e. what you are going to offer a customer or a visitor. If you consider some websites like about.com, ehow.com, problogger.net, the words used will themselves make you understand the content or service that you can get by visiting them. So, if you use irrelevant words to make a domain, it may prevent new visitors especially those who are new to internet from accessing your website. This thereby shows a great impact on your traffic, earnings and global rank. So, are you ready to lose yourself to someone?

How can I get a perfect Domain


You might have already searched for available domains for your website and messed up with these results 'already taken' or 'not available.' In fact you are not the only one who lacks a perfect domain name; there are some thousands of individuals paying hundreds of dollars on freelancing platforms for getting a perfect match. So, this made some developers introduce Domain suggestion tools like instant domainsearch.com, bustaname.com, domainsbot.com and many more. My intention is not to make you completely depend on those tools, but you may get a perfect one if you spend a few minutes on such tools.

Since more than 700 million domains have been registered out of them more than eight crores are .com and it's a critical time to get what you want. So, word combination plays a major role today and also including the word 'THE' before your option may help you getting it. Also, it is not a must to have the exact word that suits your business. For example, if your business is 'planning a trip or tour' like make my trip and trip adviser, these are the options I can give you.
www.tomytour.com, www.bookmytrips.com which can be remembered easily. But if you choose domains like www.weplanyourtrips.com and www.letsmakeyourtrips.com, they look lengthy and may not impress your customers. So, be creative while buying a domain name. Also, don't hesitate to search a domain that is already registered, because more than 70 per cent of the registered domains are for sale. So, you could get it if you spend extra i.e. $100 to $10k depending on the fame of it. So, length matters when you choose a domain, but don't use random letter that makes no sense. Also, many of us worry about extensions they are;

.com Though intended for commercial enterprises its open to anyone.
.org For non-profit organizations.
.net Originally for Internet service providers.
.info Informational sites
.mobi For websites that are meant to be viewed on mobile.

The above mentioned four extensions except .mobi can be used for your website (any kind) and nothing matters. Also, if you find a perfect match for your business, it is a good idea to register all the major extensions including the country code top level domains (TLDs). One interesting thing is, Domain reselling has become a major business and gaining more importance today. In 5 to 10 years, this reselling business will reach peaks when new registrants find it difficult to get a domain they wish. I hope this article helped you a lot for selecting a best domain. Feel free to raise your doubts.
