How to choose a domain name?


Update on December 15, 2020



Today we will see a series of tips that will help you choose the correct domain name, first of all, I invite you to read the article 7 steps to start your e-commerce business that will be of great help.

Having everything ready, follow the part of choosing the domain name, it should be short and easy to memorize, I have to say I do not like sites with strange names, much less remembering them and something that does not help is the stress of day to day, so I recommend that it be something simple, easy to write and pronounce, it can be a set of words together, it must not have numbers or special characters such as periods, commas, exclamation marks, blank spaces.

An example could be about an online hardware store, the domain could be the name of the hardware store, due to the high volume of registered domains, it is possible that the name that interests you is not available, so in this part you have to be creative; twerkax or fixtool are clear examples of mastery, they are short and easy to memorize and they are also striking.

Here you can choose a domain and see if it is available.

We continue with the example of the ironworks and with this another point that you have to take into account is that the domain is also used for electronic mail and by this I mean the email addresses, for example: contact@twerkax.com, sales@fixtool.com etc; it is easy and simple, let's see it as a personalized email address and tell me who does not want one! This is useful for companies as it reflects professionalism since when being in contact with customers, they will quickly identify the company when they see the email address.

Now comes the time for domain extensions, if you do not know what they are, go to the article Domain extensions this depends a lot on the purpose of your site, for example if it is a company it can be it .com, if it is a gap organization, the .org is used, but if you want your site to focus on a country, you can use the country extension for example www.mywebsite.ca focuses on the country of Canada while www.mywebsite.mx focuses on Mexico.
