Affordable Domains Names


The first step in creating your own website is finding a good name (ie: myname.com). When selecting a name it is important to consider the purpose of a domain name, which is to provide people an easy way to reach your web site.

A great domain name should follow the three B’s:

  1. Be short – People don’t like to type, the shorter your domain name is, the easier it is to remember and the less chance the user will make a typographical mistake while entering it.
  2. Be meaningful – A short domain is nothing without meaning, 34i4nh69.com is only 8 characters long but would not be easy to enter or remember. Select a domain that relates to your site in a way that people will understand.
  3. Be clear – Clarity is important when selecting a domain name. You should avoid selecting a name that is difficult to spell or pronounce. Also, pay close attention to how your domain sounds and how effectively it can be communicated over the phone.

Just like premium real-estate on the ground that gets the most exposure, names that are short and easy to remember are an asset. In addition to humans viewing your domain, you should consider search engines. Search engines index your site and rank it for relevant against terms people search for online. In order to maximum your sites exposure consider including a relevant search term in your domain. Of course, this should only be considered if it still maintains a short, clear and meaningful domain name.
