How To Find That Perfect Domain Name!

Are you still looking for that perfect domain name? We have five tips that can help:

1. Keep it short and memorable, if possible
Since all of the 3 and 4 letter domains are probably taken, start your search with 5 letters but try to keep it under 10, if possible. You should also try to keep it to 2 or 3 syllables. Your goal should be to ensure that it is memorable and easy to type.

2. Choose your residence
While it is a preference whether to choose the or the .com as a primary domain name, if you are a business based in the UK and your market is mainly UK residents, then a holds more sway with search engine ranking than any other domain extension, so this is an easy choice. With that being said, it is always good practice to buy the .com too as .com is the standard TLD name extension and the most popular extension on the web.

3. Make it brandable
Competition is fierce so having your own strong brand is important. Make sure that name is brandable, make sure it’s available on your chosen social media platforms before you buy it.

4. Don’t rely on keywords
Some people buy domain names with keywords in just for SEO purposes. Whilst we cannot really know the ins and outs of Google’s algorithms, we can say that the value of having a keyword or buzzword in your domain name is no longer valued as highly by search engines.

5. Don’t forget the new gTLDs
If you haven’t heard of the new top level domain names yet they come in endless shapes and forms. Instead of the classic .com or you can now also choose from extensions such as .business .team .company .tv and many more.
