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
- Make it Easy to type out + dictate over the phone
- Keep it Short
If your domain name is nearly “a paragraph” people might mistype it or misspell it
- Use Keywords
What do you think people type into GOOGLE when they search for the services you provide?
- Target Your Own Area
Location! Location! Location!
- Avoid Numbers and Hyphens
If you need any help choosing the right domain name for your business just give me a call.
