How To Choose a Domain Name

How to choose a domain name?

Every month people ask me what the best way to choose a domain name is, and I realized I’ve never actually written down my answers.

So I decided to make a list of things to consider while choosing your domain name.

Another thing to consider is whether you want a keyword based domain name or a branding domain name. A branding domain would be something like expedia.com, where as a keyword based domain name would be something like vacationrentals.com. Either one works, although using a keyword based domain name will most likely allow you to rank a bit quicker for those keywords and you’ll be able to do it with less back link building work.

Some of the hosts I have used to register domain names are:

Aff Links

1and1.com
Godaddy.com
Hostgator.com


And finally, when deciding on your domain name, choose something you like and are comfortable using for years to come.
