Guide to choosing Domains

Our latest site update is all about how to choose a domain name. This of course depends on the purpose of your domain registration. Our focus is of course on domainers, but you’ll also learn about different approaches for business or personal use.
The most important factor of any domain registration should be the value aspect. For a business it could simply mean that the domain fits to the company for presenting itself online, but for the domainer it must increase the value of the portfolio. One should be aware of the most important factors that a good domain should include or not.
Chracteristcs of great domains

  • Easy to pronounce
  • Made up of useful keywords from a popular field
  • Major TLD (like .com or ccTLD)
  • Potential for development
  • Short
  • Without hyphens
  • Without numbers

Owning great domain names has a lot of positive side effects, besides the value it’s a cheap tool to gain a competitive edge if you are doing business. Just think of benefits like instant revenue opportunities,  branding und marketing and also search engines will love it.  You should also note that a great generic domain by itself builds a certain level of trust or wouldn’t you mind getting an insurance from a site using a domain made up of certain numbers and a .tk extension. Moreover you will always have an asset you can sell again at any time.
