  22. 22. 5) Unique & Brandable Example<br />Which is More Unique & Brandable?<br /><ul><li>MicroBloggingCommunity.com Or Twitter.com
  23. 23. TheBestSocialNetwork.com Or Facebook.com</li></ul>Don’t Worry If You Think Your Name Doesn’t Mean Anything! Honestly, What Do Yahoo, Google, Twitter and Facebook Mean?! If You Find a Meaning in the Dictionary, Please Let Me Know, Too!<br />
  24. 24. 6) NO Hyphens<br />Why?<br /><ul><li>It Just Makes Your Domain Difficult To Spell and Remember. Although It May Have Some SEO Advantages, Try To Stay Away From Them!</li></ul>Some Domainers Buy Domains With Hyphens Just Because The Non-Hyphenated Version Is Not Available. BIG Mistake! Go & Get Another Name!<br />
  25. 25. 6) NO Hyphens Example<br />Which is a Desired Name?<br /><ul><li>Credit-Card-Tips.com Or CreditCardTips.com
  26. 26. Line-Art.com Or LineArt.com</li></ul>Hyphens Also Give Your Domain Name an Amateur Look. At the End Of the Day, You Want To Be Seen as Professional. Hyphenated Domain Names Were Highly Recommended Before. However, They are No Longer Suggested By Top Domainers in the Industry!<br />
  27. 27. 7) NO Numbers<br />Why?<br /><ul><li>Like Hyphens, They Make Your Name Hard To Spell, Write & Remember.</li></ul>You Should Avoid Anything That May Confuse the Visitors To Write Your Domain Name in Their Internet Browsers. Letters Combined With Numbers Cannot Create Good Domain Names! So, Avoid Them!<br />
  28. 28. 7) NO Numbers Example<br />Which One Is Better For Visitors?<br /><ul><li>WeightLoss4You.com Or WightLossForYou.com
  29. 29. Travel2France.com Or TravelToFrance.com</li></ul>Although Numbers Could Shorten the Name and In Some Ways, Make the Domain Look Like a Brand, But Generally, They Are NOT Recommended!<br />Remember, Domains Consist Of Only Numbers Up to 4 Digits are Different. They Are GOLD! Like: 1945.com or 2010.org<br />
  30. 30. 8) NO Misspellings<br />Why?<br /><ul><li>Again, They Cause Confusions In Your Visitors & Obviously You Don’t Want To Lose Them.</li></ul>Imagine You Have a Successful Website With a Name That Has Misspelling. Your Visitors Type the Correct Name, But They Won’t Reach Your Site and It Hurts When They Go to Another Website With the Correct Name!<br />
  31. 31. 8) NO Misspellings Example<br />Which Is Correct?<br /><ul><li>MoviReviews.com Or MovieReviews.com
  32. 32. BiznizXpert.com Or BusinessExperts.com</li></ul>However, There Are Some Exceptions. In Some Cases, You May Use Informal Words. Still, It Depends On Your Audience:<br /><ul><li>Instead Of OnlineVideos.com: OnlineVids.com</li></li></ul><li>9) Well-Combined & Descripitive<br />Why?<br /><ul><li>Since Many Visitors Come To Your Site From Other Websites Especially Search Engines, They Need To Have an Idea What Your Site Will Be About.</li></ul>Therefore, Having a Well-Combined & Descriptive Domain Name Encourages Them To Click Through and Visit Your Site. It is also Easy to Remember For Your Audience to Recommend Your Site to Their Friends, Because It Just Makes Sense.<br />
  33. 33. 9) Well-Combined & Descripitive Example<br />Are These Really Descriptive?<br /><ul><li>DeepakBansal.com About Internet Marketing
  34. 34. PottyRock.com About Dog Training</li></ul>With That Being Said, Try To Choose a Name Which Explains Your Site Topic Or Industry Or Select an Appealing Brand Name. Some People Register Their Own Names as the Domain. It is Not Really Recommended. However, Some Exceptions:<br /><ul><li>Oprah.com (Oprah Winfrey’s)
  35. 35. JohnChow.com (Make Money)
  36. 36. JennyCraig.com (Weight Loss)</li></li></ul><li>What’s Next?!<br />Choosing a Good Domain Name May Seem a Difficult Task for Beginners, But Once You Take Action and Register a Few, You Will Find It Very Easy and Exciting.
