How To Choose a Good Domain Name for WordPress and Blogger WebsiteDo you want to start a personal blog?
Or
Do you want to run a professional website?

In both cases, the very first thing that you need is a good and professional domain name. No matter you are running a blog on blogger or self-hosted WordPress platform, a domain name is something which brings maximum results to your business.

Domain name is a very crucial thing for your business. A wrong domain name can do much damage. It can not only confuse your visitors but also damage your brand reputation.

Now you may ask that if the domain name is so important than how to choose a good domain name for a WordPress and blogger website?

Don`t worry, today I am going to help you with the best tips which will help you choose the best domain name for your website or blog. Let`s see the important factors which help you to find out a good and brandable domain name.

1) Use Keywords and Make it Brandable

Domain name tells what the business is all about. So, it is highly recommended that when you are going to buy a domain name always focus on the main keywords or targeted keywords for your business.

For example: If you want to run a casino site then you should go for Casino.com, as it tells the nature of the site, but if you choose makemoneyplayinginonlineclub.com, well no one is going to type or remember that. Reason being there is nothing mentioning online casino which is what the site is about.

2) Keep it Short and Easy to Remember

There are chances that if you are looking for a single word domain name, that may not be available anymore. In such cases, you should go for short domain names. You can even try the mix of keywords which also represents your business.

For example: Ask.com is not available so in that case you should go for something like mashable.com. But if you choose mashingable.com, it will surely confuse the user and they always type the wrong words when try to open your site, this is bad.

3) .Com is Always the Best TLD

I have seen that many times when people do not find what they are looking in .com or if they find .com costly, they choose other TLD`s such as .net, .org, .us, .co.uk etc. If you check the domain name guide, you will find out that there are more than hundreds of TLD`s available, but still .com is the most loved top level domain extension.

Why?

Because if you tell someone that your website name is “SOMETHING”, that person will put .com without even telling him at the end of Domain name, but if you have some other extension, still people always enter .com because they do are not much aware of any other extension.
So always go for .Com domain names.

4) Avoid Copyright Issues

This is one of the biggest mistakes what newbie business people make when they buy a domain name. You may be thinking that if you buy Facebookchat.com for your own chatting service then it will be popular instantly because people love Facebook. But in this case, you are ignoring the major concern which is that Facebook name is the copyright of Facebook Company. You cannot use their name.

I recommend you to use socialchat.com which is better.5) Avoid doubled letters and hyphens:

5) Avoid Doubled Letters and Hyphens

Using hyphens or doubled letters also cause confusion. If you are using a domain name with double letters, it will surely confuse the visitor as he will not able to understand in one go that the domain has one letter or double.

Using hyphens or doubled letters also cause confusion. If you are using a domain name with double letters, it will surely confuse the visitor as he will not able to understand in one go that the domain has one letter or double.

For example: If you buy a domain name like designerready.com, it will surely confuse the visitor. Also if you use designer-ready.com, still user will get confused as he will always forget hyphen, until you remind them.

These are the factors which you should consider when you are about to choose a good domain name for a WordPress or blogger website. Even on blogger always use acustom domain name. A good domain name may let your mind do exercise but it will surely bring good results. So always focus on the above points.
