Choosing a Domain Name

Choosing a domain name, a simple but memorable name used as an address, is a rather simple task. However, choosing the right domain name is entirely different. And you want to get it right the first time because domain names, though not permanent, can be a hassle to change. Here are a few questions you should ask yourself before deciding a domain name:
  • Is it readable? It is fine to choose a domain name that represents you, but if the letter arrangement when squashed together looks like something else then it might not be the best choice.
  • Does it make sense? Matching your domain name with your content is a perfect way to establish branding (if that is important to you). Of course, if the point is for it to be total nonsense, then be it.
  • Does it fit you? This domain name should represent who you are, or at least have some significance to you. You will be with a domain name for at least a year or so, so make it count.
  • Is it catchy or memorable? You want to increase your traffic. If people can remember your domain name easily, chances are they will come back again and again, even if they have forgotten to bookmark or subscribe to your blog.
Finally, choosing a domain name that matches the title of your site (or that you use in your logo if you have one) is good blogging business. Of course, if the domain name is for personal use and you do not care so much, then it is okay. But consider matching your domain name matching with your title or logo.
