Selecting the Right Domain Name:
Besides being the route which web surfers find you on the Internet, the right domain name will also prove to be an important issue to consider when it comes to making your site recognizable. As a result, selecting the "right" domain name can make all the difference in your online success.

When you purchase your own domain name you add credibility to your business or endeavor and can gain a fair share of marketing momentum if you take the time to make the most of the nominal investment. Serious webmasters realize selecting the right domain name is one of the most important business moves you can make.

How do you choose a good domain name?
There are still lots of excellent domain names available so make sure to take your time in deciding. The first step in choosing a good domain name should be to brainstorm, or come up with a list of possible names. (Scroll down to learn how to check on the availability of domain names.)


Make sure it is easy to convey and remember

Your domain name will be placed in many locations in many formats. Make sure it is not difficult to say or too long to fit on printed material or in electronic formats. Ask your friends, colleagues or employees about your proposed domain name, then, ask them later in the day to recall it for you. If they misspell it or become confused on what it might have been, try another domain name. Remember, there are millions of possible domains still available so you should be able to find the right one for your online endeavor. Also, make sure the domain fits the theme of your site while providing you some flexibility in case you decide to change your plans in the future.

SUPER-SECRET TIP: If you're a business owner, make sure that you buy a domain name with the keywords you will promote your site with. For example, if you sell manuals to webmasters, you could (if it was not taken) buy webmasters-manual.com


Is your domain name still available?
Before you decide on the domain name that is right for your future web site, make sure to check its availability. To check whether your preferred domain is still available, visit www.internic.net. Remember that there are thousands of domain resellers, so be sure to shop around before you shell out the necessary investment.

Domain names are being bought at an astonishing rate so get yours before its too late! The sooner you do, the sooner you can start receiving the benefit the Internet can provide!
