Find Brandable Domain Names:
Before selecting a domain name, you should keep in mind these features. First, a brandable domain name is unique and it doesn’t have a specific meaning. The best example of this kind of domain is Google.com. Secondly, your domain name should be easily rememberable for the audience. Thirdly, the pronunciation of your domain name should also be simple. At last, your domain name should also differentiate your website from the competitors. No doubt, to select such kind of domain name, you will have to use random suffixes and relevant keywords. Therefore, you should not forget the qualities of a brandable domain name. After thinking about a brandable domain name in your mind, you should check its availability before sharing this idea with anyone else. If it is available, you should be hurry to buy it. If it is not available, you should think about another brandable domain name.
Keep Your Domain Name Short:
Your domain name should be short. Its reason is that the pronunciation and remembrance of a short domain name are easy for the audience members. For this reason, you can also get an idea about the most successful companies in the online world. Facebook, Twitter, Google and Amazon etc. are the most successful companies in the online world and all of these companies have short domain names. Therefore, I recommend that your domain name should not exceed from 6-14 words. It is possible only if you are thinking about the unique domain name. On the other hand, if you are thinking about the existing domain name, you will have to add some extra characters in this domain name. If you are adding some extra characters in the existing domain name, it means that you are crossing the ideal length of a domain name. If you are not finding an ideal domain name for your website, you can use domain name generators. Its reason is that most of the good domain names are already registered and it is difficult for you to find a short domain name for your website. Anyhow, if you use a domain name generator, you will get lots of domain name ideas for your website.
Don’t Use Hyphens And Numbers In Your Domain Name?
You can use hyphens and numbers in your domain name. Anyhow, if want to choose an SEO-friendly website, you should not use hyphens and numbers in your domain name. Its reason is that if you are using hyphens and numbers in your domain name, you are making it hard the pronunciation of your website. We try to understand this fact with the help of an example. For example, Google.com is a domain name and it is short and it is also easy to pronounce. Instead of Google.com, if we keep its domain name as 123Goo-gle.com, it is hard for the users to remember, type and pronounce. No doubt, most of the people are creating profitable websites and they want to target more and more visitors. To get the attention of lots of visitors, we should try to make it simple and easy for the users.
Don’t Repeat Letters:
While purchasing a domain name, you should be calm and you should double-check the letters of your domain name. Its reason is that if you have repeated letters in your domain name, people will find it difficult to remember your domain name. For example, if you want to purchase a domain name for your business of academic help, ‘Dissertation Writers UK’ is easy to remember for the people but while purchasing this domain name, you add some extra letters in it like ‘Dissertation-Writers-uk.co.uk’, this domain name will be odd for the readers. Therefore, they find lots of difficulties to remember and pronounce your website. Moreover, both the domains look similar but the visitors of second domain can’t remember it easily. Therefore, while typing your domain name, they miss one or two letters and search engines will direct them to another website. As a result, you can’t drive targeted traffic to your website. Along with these tips, you can also make your domain name SEO-friendly by adding the targeted keyword in your domain name and by staying away from the dashes in your domain name.
