If you want to have your very own awesome website, you need to have a good domain name to go with it. This can be whatever you want it to be, but it should have something to do with your brand. You need to spend some time figuring out what the best domain name would be.
Here are some ideas on how to do so…
Figure out what you want your business name to be. This would be your first step as your business name will depend on the domain name. Once you have brainstormed that, you can start playing around with domains.
When it comes to a domain name, you have to make sure no one else has taken it. You want to be able to get the .com version of it before you add any other ones. You can search with the company you want to buy a domain name from, and it will tell you if the name is already taken or not. And don’t forget to look for domain coupons to get the best deal. No reason to waste money!
If it is, keep changing the domain name so that you have something that works for your brand.
You don’t want too long of a domain name, and you want something people will remember. You also want the name to flow and look okay as a web address. You might have a normal brand name, but when you put it all together as a web address, it might look weird. Make sure you check for that before you make your decision.
You can also try out the name with your friends or team members. Ask them what they think of the name and if they think it would be a good fit for your brand. Friends can be very willing to help you out when it comes to this. They can also help you to stay away from domain names that would not work well.
After you have figured that out, found out no one else has the name, you will need to purchase it. If you are set on the address and know you will keep it a while, make sure you pay for more than one year. That way you can establish yourself on the internet long term.
Make sure you go with a company that you trust that you would want to give your money to. Look for discounts as a lot of companies do give them out when you buy a new domain. Spend some time reading reviews about the different companies to be able to find the right one to use.
Once you buy the domain, you will need to set things up with your web host. Some are more helpful than others. If you have an idea of what you want to do, you can start with that, and if not you will need to sit down and figure out what you want. You can hire people to help you so that you can truly get what you want even if you don’t have the skills to do it yourself.
