Creating a domain name without knowledge can cost you money. Do not believe me? Listen to this. If I can not find your domain name or even remember it after you told me about it, I can not do business through your site. There are so many websites on the Internet that you will be lost in cyberspace even before you can get off the ground! Registering a catchy, well-researched, and keyword-enhanced domain name is as good as money in the bank.
The ignorant chooses a domain because it sounds good, or they just like it. The wise will have no such computations and will in fact research the name exhaustively just to get the right fit. If you are choosing a domain name on the World Wide Web for any reason other than charity, then you will want to make the most profitable choice you can find.
Here are some of the best reasons to think carefully when creating a domain name. Get this right and your profit could be assured, just from the domain name alone.
Get A Domain Name That Will Increase In Value Each Year.
How will you know that your domain name will be more valuable with time? You can start by looking at trends in the industry or niche that you want to operate in. The days of the analog telephone is dead so you may not want to register a domain that includes the words analog telephone if you are in that industry. Instead look at where the industry is going. Internet, cellular, satellite, or mobile phones are in and will be here for a while so if you are operating in the telephone industry, it would be safer to go with words that have a future.
Create A Domain Name That Will Get Some Traffic
Do some quick research to get some ideas using the Google ad words tool located at this address: adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal. You will get a graphic of how many searches are made for that term and how many people are trying to market on the web, using that term. You can also type in your term at Google.com to see how many websites are on the Internet with those terms. Enclose the word or phrase in quotes like these ("") to get more accurate results. For example "holiday camping gear".
Combine Keywords When Creating a Domain Name to Get the Best Fit
If you think about it, it makes sense. If you are selling bull horns, automatic air horns, or goat horns you may want to include those words into your domain name. Remember that the days of single word domain names are long gone. These days you need to find short and preferably memorable phrases that will help you out. Combining words that tell your story will immediately tell your customers what you are selling.
Find a Good Registrar to register your domain names
There are many of these registrars competing for your business. Prices range from $ 1.99 to over $ 30.00 for the rights to use a domain name for a year. ICANN currently has an accredited list of registrars. Go here: icann.org/registrars/accredited-list.html and browse their list. You will also find a good list of TLD's (top level domains) here as well. Do not get hung up research however. Remember that a .com is still the most popular form of the domain name. If you type the domain name with www but without a TLD, your browser will default to the .com form of the name.
