Domain Name Information

The first thing you need to do when creating a website is to get your own domain name. Don't know what that is, why you need it or how to get one? This page contains all of that domain name information and more.

A domain name can be any combination of letters and/or numbers up to 63 characters.

How to Choose a Good Domain Name

Here is some information and tips to help you select the best domain name for you:
Keep it short. The shorter, the better. It’s best to keep your domain name less than 15 characters if possible. A shorter name is easier for people to remember and it also reduces the likelihood that your visitor will mistype it or spell it wrong.

Keep it sweet. The more memorable the name, the easier it is for people to remember. You can have the best site in the world, but if people can’t remember your domain name it will cut down on your return visitors. It’s hard enough to get traffic on the web without “losing” visitors that want to come back but can’t find you.

The latter will be memorable.

When in doubt, choose a .com. If you are debating between several different domain names, go with the .com. It’s what most people think of when they are typing in a domain name. It’s true the best names are gone, but you can still find a good .com if you look. Thousands of .coms expire and are released back in the market each month so there is always a steady supply of new domains coming into the market.

Special tip: If you can afford it, you may also want to get your name followed by .com along with whatever domain name you decide to get. I think the way the internet is going it is smart to do and you will be very glad you have it later on.
