Get Web HostingHow To Choose the Right Domain Name• Make it short and easy to spell and preferably no more then 3 words long.Following these steps will make it easier for people to remember yourwebsites name.• If you’re website will be for your small business, then use your businessname as your domain name.• If you want to branded as an expert in a specific field, then use your ownname as your domain name. I did this for my johnpaulaguiar.com name onmy blog.• Choose a .com if you can, and a .net as a second choice. .com is whatpeople automatically relate a website too. the .net is a close second.• Do NOT use numbers in your domain name.
