Before going to choose your brand name you must decide right niche for you. After selecting the right niche, you will choose the domain name. Domain name is a pretty important thing here, this is how people are going to get to your site. For example, if you’re typing facebook.com then you will end on Facebook. Likewise what people should write to end up on your site? No need to worry if you don’t know to decide your domain name, you can use some helpful tools to select a perfect domain name.
Choose Your Brand Name
Choose your brand name short and memorable. Facebook is short and memorable but selecting such one generic word for your brand is hard to get and also cost more than average, therefore you must be creative while choosing a domain name. The thing which is mostly recommended by well-known entrepreneurs is to register your personal name as domain name. We have most successful sites like NeilPatel and JohnChow seems registered as the personal name. Choose your brand name as your personal name if it is available if it is not then you can go for other domain names. I recommend you to don’t waste your time on other domain names if it is not .com, .net or .org.
If your personal name is not available direct you can use add a ‘blog’ to your name. For example, if yourname.com is not available look for yournameblog.com.
It is not important that your domain name should make sense, there are a lot of popular sites whose domain is not making sense but they are still a brand like Mashable or Twitter. Just select a right domain name for you and make it a brand.
Let’s have a quick view of best domain registration sites. You can use NameCheap and Godaddy to register a domain name, it hardly cost 10$ dollars per year. You can also use a free domain name but it is recommended to buy one, mostly it is 10$ per year but could vary according to your name selection.
