  3. 3. Introduction<br />You will learn how to chose an effective and memorable domain name and learn how you can actually increase traffic by using an old, expireddomain name. And then we’ll look at hosting your domain name and the options available.<br />Times wasting so lets get started…<br />
  4. 4. Your Domain Name<br />Your domain name is the only clue to your online business. You do not have visual clues: no location, no look, and no store design. Instead, users have to type in a word or a set of words to reach your site.<br />Your prospective visitor has no way of knowing what your site is all about until he/she finds it and reads its contents.<br />Who can ever tell that sells books? Or that Excite is a search engine?<br />
  5. 5. Domain Name<br />Your domain name can spell your success on the Internet. A good domain name is the best asset you can ever have. It can make your business stand out in the crowd, or just float aimlessly in space.<br />
  6. 6. Picking a Domain Name<br />For better branding results, your domain name should be memorable and easy to<br />remember. Remember the following tips when creating a domain name.<br />The domain name should be short<br />The domain name should be simple<br />It should be suggestive of your business category<br />It should be unique<br />It should be easy to interpret and pronounce<br />It should be personalized<br />It should not be difficult to spell<br />It should not be difficult to remember<br />
  7. 7. Where to get a Domain Name<br />Domain names can be registered through many different companies (known as "registrars") - a listing of these companies is available at ICANN:<br />You can register for 1 to 10 years - prices can vary anywhere from $10 to $20 per year.<br />Most web hosting companies, as explained in part 2, will handle the registration process for you, but make sure that you are properly listed as the owner of the domain when it is registered. If you have registered a domain name for a specific period, make sure you renew it in time.<br />
  8. 8. Buying Existing Domains<br />Thousands of webmasters invest time, effort and money to promote their site and build up traffic.<br />Many of them then lose interest and move on, leaving their site active. That means that although they still own the domain, they’re not actively promoting it.<br />But they don’t need to. All the automatic marketing systems they’ve put in place are still bringing in traffic. The site runs itself.<br />
  9. 9. Now, at some point the ownership of those domains is going to expire.<br />If you snap up those domains once they come back onto the market, you’ve got a prebuilt stream of customers.<br />You can either rebuild the site, or redirect the traffic to your domain. You could set up an affiliate program get paid for users someone else paid for.<br />
  10. 10. Websites such as www.expiredtraffic.comor www.deleteddomains.comactuallydo all the legwork and let you reap all the rewards.<br />Expired Traffic even has an affiliate program and allows you to back-order a specific domain name. <br />Do be careful when using other sites though. There are some swindlers out there that will sell you subscriptions, provide you with outdated lists, take your money and keep the good domains for themselves.<br />It happens, and there’s little point in taking a risk when does such a great job.<br />Go to part 2 to get tips on finding hosting for your domain name.<br />
