Suggestion about Choosing a Domain Name
Choosing a domain name is as essential as choosing a name as your brand. A domain name represent the content of your site, but it it is not “a must” to include the keywords of your site in domain name. I personally suggest to use the name of your business (brand) as your domain name and stick to .com, .net, and .org extension.
The Best Domain Name
- The best domain name is a domain name which is short and easy to remember. Example: google.com, youtube.com, amazon.com, yahoo.com, etc.
- Since most of domain name use letter, you might need to prevent using hyphens and numeric character of 0 (zero) which is have same appearance with “o” (letter) in some font.
