How to choose a domain name?

Selecting the right domain name for your company is a very important part of the domain registration process. The following tips will aid you in selecting the right domain name; keep the domains in mind as you go through selecting and narrowing down to a suitable web domain name, and before you finally register your domain name with the domain registrar.

Your domain name or web address should primarily reflect your business name or the topic of your site.

Your domain name should be a unique and concise name that is easy to say, remember and spell. Try explaining your domain name over the phone. If it is easy to understand, then you're on the right track.

You can use only letters, numbers, and hyphens in your domain name. Spaces or other symbols are not allowed.

Do a domain name check, if your first choice of domain name has been taken already and therefore is not available anymore, try rearranging the word order, adding hyphens, or using abbreviations or locations to come up with an alternative domain name, that is closest to what you have in mind.
