4 Tips to Help You Choose a Good Domain Name

    If you decide to use a phrase for your domain name ( combining keywords), please make sure that you have finally figured out what your domain name will be OFFLINE before checking its availability out online. This advice is based on the experience I had along with a colleague while trying to register a domain name for him.

    During the domain name availability check-up, he felt using a synonym for the third keyword in his domain name would be better. At the end, we viewed that using the new keyword would defeat the the purpose of combining the three short keywords used in the domain name and we typed in the former keyword. There were website navigational hitches, thereafter,and having thought that we were okay with the reversion to the earlier third keyword, we went on with the domain name registration.

    Oops! We, at the end, discovered that because of the hitches that happened, the reversion failed and so, we registered the “unwanted” third keyword with the domain name. Though, in the literal sense, we later felt that the registered domain name was still okay.However, in the real sense, we were not satisfied getting the “unwanted” domain name until another round of expenses were made to get us the earlier intended domain name.

    To avoid repetition of expenses (time, money and efforts), please conclude with the keyword(s) in your domain name before you go online. Doing this, I think, will save you the chances of things unexpected such as ours.

    To your online success.

      Ha ha Joe, thanks for sharing this experience, I have lost some much registering domains and the reason is usually similar to and even on emotions. It is always paihful to start the process all over again espcially when money is involved.

      Thanks Joe!
