You can go on my website techmoolz.com and see the post, “What is a domain name and web hosting” In that post I have given proper information about the domain name. Choosing a right domain is really important because it is your brand and business identity. A domain name is not only your brand and business identity, but it is also your identity. Therefore, you should have your own domain name. Choosing a domain name is like choosing your company’s name. So, therefor at the time of choose a domain name we should pay attention of somethings.In this post we are now going to talk about choosing a right domain. Today I am going to tell you some great tips for choosing a right domain. So let’s start.
How difficult is it to choose the best domain name?
It is not easy to name anything. There is a lot of foreshadowing. Have to think many times. Which name is right? Which name is not right? Similarly, choosing Top Level Domain is also not an easy task. When naming a child, think about what we do. Because only the name is recognized.
The name of any child can be the same, but the domain name is not the same. You have to find a name that was never there before. The name itself later becomes a brand. Therefore, while choosing the name of the website or blog, one should think properly and register the domain name.
Suppose you have chosen an incorrect domain name. So changing it later will be a very difficult task. Even if it changes and does not change correctly. So this will also affect your search engine optimization and traffic. Therefore, in the beginning, you should choose the name of a good and different top level domain. So that there is no need to change it later. Because changing it later will be a very complicated and complicated task.

Website and Top Domain Extensions
If the quality and content of a website or blog is very good. So no matter what the domain is by any name. People like that site. Any internet user is public about your domain through search engine, ad or social networking etc. And if the domain is short and worth remembering. So he remembers that too. So it is not necessary that your domain will not be successful because the name is not correct. That’s why “Content is the King”.
How useful is a .Com extension? The domain’s extension lasts. Such as .com, .net, .org, .in etc. It should be chosen according to the topic of your business and website or blog. The .com extension is the most used and most popular domain extension. So you should give more importance to .com extension when buying domain.
Any person without knowledge of technology while surfing the internet, writes the .com extension and surfs only. Because he thinks that any website is a .Com. Or someone else has heard about .com. Therefore .com extension should be your first choice. If your business or work is multi national. So first of all .com and then buy the domain created for that country. E.g., .in (for India)
If the .com extension is not found, the .com extension is not found. Then you can choose an extension created for .org, .net or country. Such as .in (for India), .sg (for Singapore), .ca (for Canada), .us (for United States), .uk (for United Kingdom) etc.
You can register the new Best Domain Names extension according to the usage of your site. Such as .info, .guru, .photography, .club, .online etc. In the first place “.com” comes in second place “.net”, in third place “.org” and in fourth place “.info” extension.
About 80% of extensions are of “.com” alone. And by about 10% are extensions to “.net” and “.org”. From this you can understand how popular the “.com” domain extension is. If you believe me, you should only buy the “.com” extension. If it is not found. Then you should think about buying extensions like “.net” and “.org”.
If none of these three extensions is found. So think about changing your domain name again. Some extensions are described below.
- .com – Professional.
- .co – This is short for dot com. Business and community.
- .net – Technical and Internet Infrastructure Site.
- .org – Non-business and non-profit organizations.
- .biz – Business and Business.
- . me – personal and blog site.
2. ease of typing
Choose a top level domain that is very easy to type. Like, google, yahoo, amazon, snapdeal etc. All of them are easy to remember and type. Because such domains confuse people.
There may be a mistake while writing the website . Also, if you use more than one accented words, like “express” and “xpress”. So writing such names can also be a mistake. Instead of “xpress”, “express” can be written.
3. Keep the name short
If your Top Level Domain will be more big and complicated. So customers can make a mistake while typing its spelling. So make the domain as small and intuitive as possible. The domain of any popular website is at most 6 to 10 characters. Such as Google, Yahoo, LinkedIn, Facebook, Amazon, Bing, Flipkart etc.
But it is very difficult to get short names. Because short names have already been purchased. So you try about a unique name. And keep it between 12 characters at most, it will be much better.
4. Easy to remember
If there is no problem in remembering a name, then it will be very easy to share it among people.Therefore, you have to choose a name that is very different and can be remembered very hard.
If you choose names like wetregsj, qermwaerty, bvcgfrte, opiyutre, tyegeh, you might think that one is not worth remembering. Secondly, they do not make any sense. And there is a mistake in typing such words. Therefore, your domain name should be very simple and meaningful. Like, Flipkart, Snapdeal, Naika etc.
5. Do not use numbers and dashes
Numbers (12345) and dashes (-) should not be used. Because numbers and dashes are not easy to remember. Along with this, they also confuse people. For example, look at Facebook, “face-book”. The dash should have been used in the middle. But Facebook has not done this.
See the name of any Top Level Domain. The number or dash is not used there. If a number is used at the beginning, middle or end of a name, it is not true. This can be a mistake in both memorizing and typing.
While writing the name, we would start thinking about what the number was. People will also be confused using dashes. domains like google2343, flip5436kart, face5466book, Ama-zon, snap-deal etc. are not correct. So numbers and dashes should not be used. Because using them there is difficulty in remembering, confusion, and also typing.
6.Keep domain name expandable
Do you want to identify your blog by your domain name name, if yes, then you have to keep the domain name so that people can know what is in your blog as soon as they see the domain, and what information will that user get That is why keep your domain name according to your information.
7. Using Top Level Domain as Exact and Half Keywords
Whenever we search through some keywords in the search engine, and the content matches that keyword. The complete list comes with a link to all of them. We click any one of them as per requirement. So when you select the exact and half keywords as the domain name. So the ranking of website or blog increases in search result.
A. Exact as Keyword
A domain named Exact means that anyone searches in a search engine when a word is similar to your domain name. So its link goes to the search result page. Like when searching in search engine by typing “weather”, a link to the site www.weather.com comes. Similarly, searching by writing “gaana” brings up the site of gaana.com. By searching for “history”, the site of history.com appears. All these domains are working as exact keywords. For example, the full keyword “weather”. “Gaana” and “history” are also full keywords.
B. Half as keyword
Half is the keyword name, half of the domain name is the keyword. For example, “Pay” is half the keyword in “Paytm”. In any search engine when searching through keywords. And half of the domain name matches that keyword. So your website or blog appears on the search results page. For example, after searching by typing “pay”, the site of paytm.com comes. After searching by typing “time”, a link to the site “www.time4education.com”, “www.timeanddate.com/” comes up. The search engine takes half of the domain name as a keyword. And brings a page similar to that in the search result.
This way if you choose a Top Level Domain. In which half or full name is a keyword similar to your business. So it appears more frequently on the website search result page. The traffic rate of that site is high.
8. Protect domains and brands
Your purchased Top Level Domain can also become a very big brand in future. Therefore it is very important to protect it. To protect it, it is necessary to purchase different extensions of your domain name as well. For example, the site name is example.com. So buy exapmle.org, example.net, example.co.in etc. In addition, buy the extension of the country in which you live. (Eg .in for India, .sg for Singapore etc.)
It is necessary to purchase all such top level domain’s main extensions. Then your opponent will not be able to buy any other extension of your domain.
Also buy the domain with the wrong name of your website. This will mean that even if someone mistypes your domain, it will come to your site only if you forward the wrong domain to your main domain.
Yahoo later had to buy flicker.com by paying crores of rupees. Because by mistyping people used to move to flicker instead of flickr. Also, forward or redirect other domain extensions purchased to your main site. If techmoolz.in is the main domain, then forward techmoolz.com, techmoolz.net, techmoolz.org etc. to techmoolz.in.
9. Using Keywords
As I stated above. Keywords related to your business and services should be used in the Top Level Domain. Like you have a mobile repair shop. So you can choose mobilerepair.com. The use of keywords increases your site’s ranking in search engines. Traffic improves with more frequent search results. By using keywords, any customer searches for anything related to that keyword. So the link to our website or blog appears more often on the search results page.
10. Research properly
Do research properly before purchasing Top Level Domain. The name you have chosen. That name is not a copyright or trademark of any other company. The domain name you have chosen is not being used by any other company. If this happens, then you can get caught in a legal dispute. Handwashing can also be done from domains you have purchased. So, after doing the research properly, think about buying a domain.
11. Do not delay in registering or buying
Top Level Domains are registering very fast. So there should be no delay in choosing or registering the name. Because it may not happen, the name you have thought, buy someone else. It does not take much money to buy or register a domain. You can easily buy or register any preferred name.
We can buy and register our favorite Top Level Domain only by taking a quick decision. There are many such people or companies. Those who already register or purchase domains. And later sell them at good prices.
12. Add your local business to the domain
If your business is native and local. So the domain name can also refer to that field. This helps local customers find your services, such as Kolkatamobilerepair.com, your local address can also be used as a domain name.
