domains

Just like the postman knows where to deliver a letter because he knows the address, a browser will find out where to look for a site from the domain name. Finding a domain name is becoming more and more difficult – the registration of international top-level domains – .com, .net, .org , .info, .biz (there were approximately 132.5 million of them late 2012) is done almost instantaneously . New domains are registered every day but many go out too. A name that is available today might not be tomorrow, so it is important to register as soon as possible.

Country domain is better for companies that are oriented toward the domestic market. Countryl domain will give you a better position on search results on your local Google so the consumers from your country will find you easier. Each country has its own rules regarding the registration of the domain names.
.com
.com domain is very easy to register – it is enough to pay a fee, without any special paperwork. If you target the international market, .com will be an advantage because it is easier to remember.
.tv, .me, .fm, .us, .eu, .ca
Some country domains can be purchased without a specific procedure. They are memorable and unusual (for example . www.cact.us , www.nova.tv or www.harmoni.ca), and therefore interesting for promotional sites . However, most users will assume that you have a .com domain, so keep an eye on sites of your competition. Also the search engines do not understand these terms, so they will not add any extra value to your site because of them.

Basic rules for the selection of a successful domain name

  • The name should be short and simple. However, it is better to have a long name that makes sense than a meaningless short name.
  • Let it contain your company, activity, service or product name.
  • Avoid names that are complicated to spell.
  • It is good to include popular keywords or terms that are often searched for in the search engines.
  • If you add something specific or unusual it will be easier to remember.
  • The name must be part of a comprehensive branding strategy.
  • If there is already a similar .com domain don’t take the same .net domain. Also, consider how justified is the selection of atypical domains (. me, . tv , etc.).
