Domain Names Selection Guide

In simple terms, domain names are the names of the websites we enter in the address bar of our web browsers, and are undoubtedly the first thing that grabs the attention of the target audience. Hence, if you are planning to buy a domain name, you need to ensure that the one you go for is in coherence with various critical factors.

Opt for a Simple Name

To begin with, you must ensure that the domain name you select is simple and hence, easy to remember. This means that if your business name is a rather long one, and you wish for the website to brand your business directly, you may consider abbreviated forms of the name.

Avoid Using Hyphens and Periods

For the same reason as above, it is recommended that you refrain from using hyphens and periods in the domain name. If you have no option but to go for such a name, make sure that your website is branded the same way, with a notable emphasis on the special character(s).

Choose a Relevant Extension

When you buy a domain name, you have the option of different domain extensions (representing Top Level Domains), such as ‘.com’, ‘.org’, and many more. While the most common choice is the ‘.com’ domain, you must choose the extension as per the nature of the website.

Find a Proficient Provider

This is perhaps the most important part of the entire process. As the number of domain services companies is increasing by the day, you may find it challenging to make the right pick. Hence, in order to ensure that select the best one, always examine the client reviews of the contenders.

Last but not the least; if you are looking for a cost-effective way to buy domain names, it is recommended that you go for an India-based provider.
