November 24, 2011 by  Filed under: Domain 

You are like an excited puppy! You are thrilled that you have discovered the business of your dreams, a targetable niche and product you are convinced will fly off the shelves!

Now what? What do you call it? How do you select and find a desirable domain name for it?

Here are some tips:

  • Pick a product/domain name that uses key words from your niche. You may need to experiment a bit since a lot of people are buying up and holding on to desirable domain names.
  • Pick a very unique name you can use as a brand that will become recognizable over time. See the caveat below regarding search engines.
  • Pick a unique name that is easy to remember.
  • Pick a name that is currently available as a ” ___.com” first, if possible.
  • Pick a name that makes sense or is easy to say and pronounce.
  • Pick out and buy several related domain names until you can settle on the one that works for you.
  • Use an inexpensive domain name registrar like GoDaddy.com.

Take some time to brainstorm words and potential domain/product names and then do your checking with the domain registrar of your choice.

Using these tips will result in a domain name you can use to market your product or service effectively and can even use as your core business name.

These tips will also help you with better search engine placement since a domain name that contains key words related to your product or service will ultimately place better than one that doesn’t.

To your success!
