What is a Domain Name?
A domain name is composed of name and two or three-letter extension separated by a period. The extension could be .com, .net, .org, .edu, .fr, .uk, etc. There is an extension for every country but .com is most common.

Why You Need It?
Having your own domain name allows people to find you online easier. In addition, you are securing your businesses brand name which in some cases may be your own personal name.

Quick Tips

  • Easy Name – your domain name should be really easy to type for the user. If it’s the case, you’ll get less mistyping’s and consequently less customers that went to a different site just because you did not take the time to come up with a more user friendly domain name
  • Easy to Recall – you need to use usual letter-combinations or words that are easy for pronouncing and typing. The words that are easy to pronounce are usually easy to remember
  • As Short as Possible – your visitor should be able to type in just a few letters and hit the Enter key before he sees your site
  • Easy-to-Guess Spelling – this will ensure that your domain name won’t be misspelled every other time someone tries to reach your website. Also, you won’t have to waste your time – especially in a radio ad spelling out your domain name.
