Create Your Website or Blog: 4 Tips For Choosing Your Best Domain Name

In my post yesterday I shared with you the step of registering your domain name . Now I want to give you 4 tips to help choosing your best domain name.

  1. Choose a domain name that describes your company, brand, your profession or a certain topic or niche. In your domain name people should already recognize what your websit or blog is all about.
  2. Choose a domain name that is easy to memorize. Don't make your domain name too complicated or too long like "". People can't memorize that.
  3. Choose the right extension. Nowadays, there are hundreds of extensions apart from the .com extension but I still recommend you use .com because it is still the most popular extension.
  4. Make sure you don't register domain names which are copyrighted. You can't use brand names, company names or trademarked names like Google, for example.

So you took gidget as your domain name? I think it would have been better to think about a niche and then to create a domain name that describes the niche.
