While thinking of setting up a website or even sorting out a new name for your site, there are certain tips that you need to follow:-

Firstly, you need to get a .com extension for your website. This is because, everyone mostly thinks in terms of .com and it is difficult for people to remember typing in .net or another suffix. For better reasons, when .com is not available, people get creative as well as find a unique and memorable name with .com at the end.

Secondly, you must keep it short whenever possible. Moreover, it must be easy to speel. Truly speaking, short domain names are somewhat difficult for coming by, as long as you stick to first tip, thus looking for .com names. You can even go for longer names as long as they are easy to remember.

Thirdly, you must get the plural of your name too. Thus, you must get the domain name as early as possible so as to avoid shelling out the bills.

Fourthly, if you get a domain name starting with ‘the’ or ‘my’ in front of it, people will very easily forget. However, it is a rare case as both work well.

Fifthly, if your preferred name is unavailable, you must get out the thesaurus and then commence brainstorming. You can also think of subtopic or subtitle ideas.

Sixthly, you need to say it loud and bounce your best ideas along with friends and family. You have to see whether or not they easily get it as well as easily remember it while typing into the web browser.

Seventhly, you need to avoid hyphens. This is because, it is difficult to verbally relay to someone a domain name with lot of hyphens. However, Google does like the taste of domain names with hyphens. Thus, you must get both whenever possible.

Eighthly, you must get multiple versions of your business or preferred name. The more, the merrier.
