A Quick Guide To Domain Registration

Domain registration is the first step towards your website and having a domain name helps you identify your site, which would otherwise be in the form of a sequence of numbers that can’t be read easily by users. Here are few things you must know before registering a domain name:




While you are free to choose your domain name, but it must not be similar to any other website. A domain search can readily tell you whether your domain name is unique or it matches some other domain name.



You need to bear this fact in mind that you don’t ever own a domain name. You lease it. You can do it for any number of years as offered by your registrar. Only you own your domain name so no one else can take it, but if you want you can sell it to someone else. If you lose your domain name, it may be that your domain name got de-registered due to non-payments and someone else bought it.


Domain Name Length

You are free to choose any excellent domain combination, but it must be unique. Now the minimum number of characters before the dot is three (3). Earlier you could also take one-character or two-character domain names, but they are no longer available.


Choosing The Domain Name

If your domain name is related to the business, it is helpful. It also helps in the search engine optimization. With the Penguin algorithm update, it is even more useful to match your website name with the domain name.  Here are some tips for choosing the domain name:

The Shorter, The Better

Shorter domain names are better than the longer ones, as they are easy to type and easier to remember.

Make It Catchy

Catchy domain names attract more visitors more as compared to the regular ones. You can use dashes if necessary.

Google Trends

You can make us of Google Trends to find topics and get hints for keywords and great domain names.


How To Find A Domain Name?

You can try a few domain names that you like and see if they are available for you. There are domain name spinners that can help you get the best domain names. Just see their availability and register the one you like the most.


Wrapping up

Your domain name is a reflection of your business identity; you need to run a domain search to see the availability and make the use of the tips to find the most suitable name for the domain.
