A domain name adds credibility to your small business... says you're forward thinking... can attract walk-in business... builds your brand.
If you're looking to purchase a domain name for your project, whether from us or anywhere else, here are a few suggestions that we use as guidelines in domain name purchasing based on experience:
- Unless your business is suited to a different specific extension, stick with .comA .net or .io extension works for tech industries, still the .com will receive type-in traffic that may be traffic lost to you if you register under any other extension. The bottom line is society has been conditioned to expect a site be a .com if it's serious.
- Avoid dashes/hyphens, abbreviations, and numbers.They're confusing to visitors and increase the efforts and costs of branding exponentially.
- Use a location in your domain if it makes sense.A plumber in Pittsburgh can easily brand PittsburghPlumber.com and gain massive benefit from such a Geo-targeted name. However, if your business isn't focused on a specific region the use of location in the domain can do more harm than good for you.
- Find a brandable name that is descriptive of your industry, product, or service.If it rolls off the tongue and describes what you do or who you are it's a winner. There's been a lot of buzz in recent years about purely brandable names that have little or no meaning, after all it's worked for Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc. The problem is most small businesses don't have the financing needed to turn any made-up name into a household word, so stick with what can give you the best ROI without having to invest a fortune explaining your name.
