Let me tell you what exactly is a domain name and later I will give the Tips For Picking A Great Domain Name For Your Blog. Well, a domain name is an address or main URL that we type in the browser to get Website. For example, Google is the domain name and, in my case, ConnectToBlog is the domain name and URL is https://connecttoblog.com. Let’s get started.
I hope you’ve decided niche for your blog and now it’s time to select a great domain name for your blog. Pick a domain name which is related to your blog. Your domain name describes everything. It represents your brand so be careful while choosing a domain name. It’s not easy to change domain name just like changing the theme of a website. So, here are some tips for choosing the perfect Domain Name for your blog.
1. Go with .com always
There are plenty of domain extensions like .net, .info, .org and so on. But .com is an ideal choice for your blog. Many people type .com on the end of the domain name. It has become that much popular and it’s easier to recall this correctly since it’s straightforward. It’s a bit difficult to find good .com domain names because many are already taken.
2. Keep your domain name short and memorable
Try to keep your domain name between 10-15 characters. The shorter the better because it will be easy for users to remember.
3. Make it easy to spell
Don’t choose any complicated domain name which is difficult to pronounce. When someone asks about your domain name, it should be easy to understand for listeners.
4. Be unique
Your domain name should be unique to stand out. For example, Google.com, Yahoo.com, ShoutMeLoud.com (which I like the most). Look at those names, all are unique and describes their brand. If you are still confused in picking the domain name then check other blogs in your niche. You will get some idea.
5. Don’t use hyphens
It’s not a good practice to use hyphens in the domain name. It will lead to so many confusions. Readers should find easy to type so never go with hyphens.
Where to register a domain name
After finding a .com name for your website, you can register your domain name in Bluehost, GoDaddy or NameCheap. These are the few which I recommend.
