Choosing the best domain name for your business

Ever wondered why some website domain names work very well, while some others really just don’t ?

A lot of our clients come to us pre-registered domain names (FastHosts, 123Reg etc) with existing websites attached. Other clients haven’t purchased a domain name yet (normally because their business is still in Start-up mode) and they often ask me advice about the best domain name to choose.

To whit, here’s a handy infographic (created by U.S. company WHO IS HOSTING THIS?) explaining best practices when choosing a new domain name…


Other things to consider when choosing a new domain name for your business

  1. Make it Easy to type out + dictate over the phone
  2. Keep it Short
    If your domain name is nearly “a paragraph” people might mistype it or misspell it
  3. Use Keywords
    What do you think people type into GOOGLE when they search for the services you provide?
  4. Target Your Own Area
    Location! Location! Location!
  5. Avoid Numbers and Hyphens
