STEPS ON CHOOSING A GOOD DOMAIN NAME
1. Make it Short
Keeping a domain very short and easy to remember is what you should always have in mind when choosing a domain name. I recommend Maximum of 8 characters long
2. Make it clear
This is one part where most people make mistakes. You need to make your domain name clear.
Take a look at this (xtra vs extra). People will easily type in extra instead of xtra
3. Try to avoid Numbers and Hyphens
When choosing a domain name try to avoid numbers. e.g 5 can be confused for five.
4. Choose the right domain extension
A domain extension also have a role to play. Your domain Extension could vary from (“.edu”, “.com”, “.org”, “.net”, e.t.c). I Suggest you pick a domain extension that suits your business.
5. Get it Right Away
Once you have gotten a domain name of your choice that suits the recommendation above, It is advisable that you get it right away.
Every day domain names are being paid for. Tomorrow, your domain might just be one of the domain paid for.
