10 Rules For Choosing A Good Domain Name PDF Print E-mail

Domain names are absolutely critical for web success. Not only will they offer visitors their first impression of your site, but depending on your web hostings service, they can make all the difference between top-notch SEO and mediocre SERPs.

But what rules are there for picking a domain name? How can you be sure you're creating something with real staying power? Here are 10 tips for choosing a domain name that's right for you.

  1. Make It Unique: Don't try to ride the coattails of another popular business. For one, you're just asking customers to confuse their services for yours; if the similarities are close enough, you could also run afoul of copyright law.
  2. Stay With A Dot-Com: The majority of Internet users aren't even aware that dot-net and dot-orgs exist. You'll lose a lot of potential readers, customers and clients by putting yourself on the fringes of the web.
  3. Keep It Simple: Short, simple names are more likely to be remembered from online ads and conversations. Resist the temptation to name your website SeymoursWebDesignandPrintingServices.com.
  4. Play Around With Keywords: A lot of popular words and phrases have already been registered with big-name web hostings. To make something of your own, you'll need to formulate a list of rhymes, synonyms and related keywords to your business, then fiddle with them until you find a unique combination that hasn't already been claimed.
  5. Say No to Numbers: Think about the man on the street who hears about your website called 16 Candles. Is he going to whip out his smartphone and look for SixteenCandles or 16Candles? If he guesses incorrectly, will his traffic go to a competitor?
  6. Use Your Location: If you're establishing yourself as a local business, be sure to put your city or state in the domain name to help your site achieve maximum page rankings. PhoneRepair.com could be anyone, but MinneapolisPhoneRepair.com lets your customers know exactly where you are.
  7. Make It Self-Explanatory: What does your domain say about your website? You want it to have some kind of correlation to the work you do or the content you offer. You don't want people to hear your domain name and wonder, "How exactly is that related to their business?"
  8. Apply Alliteration: The human brain is hard-wired to remember things that sound catchy and lyrical. Which is more memorable to you, TheBestDeodorantsInTheWorld.com or DeodorantDungeon.com?
  9. Search for Existing Trademarks: To avoid patents and copyrights, do a quick search on your intended domain name. Make sure it hasn't been taken by another brand with a longer history and more lawyers than yours.
  10. Protect Your Name: Once you've registered your domain, think about scooping up any similar-sounding or misspelled variations of the same thing. You can keep them as empty pages that simply forward to your real website.

These are just 10 things to keep in mind when sifting through web hostings and choosing a domain name. Whether you're building a blog or starting your own commercial business, use these tips as a guide for creating a website that will put you on the virtual map.
