How to Choose and Register Domain Names is more important than you think. Yes ,it is part of the web site ‘set up’ process, but it is also an important step in your marketing and positioning process. Your domain represents far more than just the WWW address people will use to get to your web site, when you register domain names, it plays a key role in your branding stratedy, and influences your market’s “first impression” of your business.
Different places your potential customers might see you, when you register domain names :
*Natural search results
*Forum and E-mail signatures
*Other text or banner type ads you create
*Any off-line media (business cards , for example) you use
People will be either clicking on a link to your site, or they’ll be typing it into their browser from memroy . Either way , you want to choose and register domain names with the following in mind:
*Easy to remember
*Easy to spell
*The shorter the better
*Keywords related to your niche
*Use your personal name if you want to brand on that
*Use a .COM extension
*Create a favorable first impression
So, for example, if your niche is ‘weight loss’ , then you’d want register domain names that reflects this fact – for example – ‘www.slimdown.com’ or ‘www.loseyourfat.com’ or something that spins off the title of the main product you intend to promote. You can use descriptive names (my favorite!) or even register domain names for your main internet business. When you choose and register domain names it can be a challenge sometimes because most of the shorter and more obvious names have already been registered. Thankfully, you don’t have to wrack your brain for hours trying to come up with alternatives… Instead , you can use a free service like GoDaddy.com or Register.com to generate dozens of available domain names based on the keyword criteria you specify.
Once you’ve chosen a suitable domain name for your business, head on over to GoDaddy.com (as low as $1.99) or Register.com (as low as $0.99) to register domain names.
