How to Choose Your Domain Name
Once you have chosen the niche that you wish to create a website in, your next step is to choose a domain name for your website. What is a Domain Name? – You domain name is what people type into their internet browser to access your website. This article will show you how to choose a great domain name.
Choosing your domain name is an INCREDIBLE IMPORTANT step in making money from your website. A lot of people fail to spend sufficient time choosing a domain name and thus their entire website suffers.
You domain name is your websites brand and your websites identity, it will either make your website stand out from the crowd and become extremely successful or it will make it blend in with the crowd and not be noticed. When it comes to building a website you want to be the website that stands out in people’s minds.
In order to get a great domain name (and a domain name that will increase the value of your website) you need to follow a few specific rules.
You domain name should be 2-3 words long. If you go longer than 2-3 words it becomes too long for readers to remember and therefore is less valuable. Obviously one word is best, but almost all one word domain names are gone, so it is best to aim for a good 2-3 word domain name.
You domain name should be brandable and something that is easy to remember. Don’t create a domain name that you do not feel is brandable and easy to remember.
A domain name is not going to be brandable if the words do not relate to each other (eg moneywinedogs.com). The words need to relate and go together well to make it brandable. Though this is not always the case. For example there is the blog shoemoney.com, which is an extremely popular blog and is extremely brandable. But yet what do shoes and money have in common? Nothing! You need to find the balance.
