6 Things You Should Consider Before Purchase A Domain Name

It is a huge knowledge on how to select a domain name for a website. I have some tips here can guide you how to select an effective domain name for your website.

If you have been read through my 75 SEO FAQs, I’m sure this question is not an odd to you.

• #40 There is no apparent search engine rankings benefit to having a keyword-matched domain name (eg www.example.com for keyword “example”).
Your Answer: FALSE
Correct Answer: FALSE
This is “FALSE,” as many examples of keyword-targeted domains have been shown to have a phenomenal amount of ranking success in the engines, despite other factors not being nearly as strong as the competition.

Domain name is one of the key to design a high traffic website. If you are on the way thinking of a domain name for your niche or web business, read the following tips to have a better idea.

Tip 1 – Keyword-Rich Domain

KEYWORD-RICH domain name is an important factor of SEO. Choosing the right domain could BOOST your search engine rankings. Keyword(s) in URLs help a lot and it has been proven in many cases especially for Yahoo! and MSN.

Tip 2 – Use a .com

.com is a trend. It is also the preferred extension for web business. Some browser even will auto complete .com if you forget to type the extension.
if you can’t find an available .com that you like, .net is a good second choice. ProBlogger, Darren Rowse, is using a .net domain.

Tip 3 – A easy- to-remember domain name

Easy-to-remember means it should be short and, easy to pronounce and spell, and better without using dashes. I made a mistake when chose my domain name. I think unless it becomes famous, or else I have to remind people that K [DASH] Director.com forever. :( ?

Tip 4 – Use a special or funny name

Your domain name should be memorable and impressive. “GoDaddy” is more memorable than something like “Web Hosting Company”. If you are not that creative, try to combine words into a made-up name like Flickr, MySpace, DealDotCom. Normally people start with a word that related to your niche, then try adding on endings and see what comes up.

Tip 5 – Avoid well-knows trademarks

Try do not use a name that includes well-known trademarks. For example, if you register a domain name with “Amazon” somewhere in the name, you’ll soon be receiving an email from Amazon.com’s legal department asking you to surrender the name.

Tip 6 – Should you buy an existing name?

If you have set up your mind on a particular name that been used, you can try buying it from the current owner. You can also view the whois results for an existing domain. Look for the owner’s email address, and try contacting them directly.
If fail, you can check out the domain name’s expiry date. Get ready to purchase the domain if the owner forgets to extend it.

    That is a good list… there are still many good domains left, you just have to be creative sometimes.  One item I would add to the list is to try and get as short a url as possible.  I love seeing the ones like thisismygreatdomainnameformybusiness.com and think everyone is just going to remember that whole thing.

    There are still some good 6 to 8 letter domains available, you just have to look for them.
