What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is the unique web address that points to your website. Eg. Bamise.com, Sharpeyedmaster.com, Forwardoutlook.org and CarefulRemovals.co.uk are good examples of Brand driven domain names. Whilst Minibushirewithdriver.com and web-design-london.com are examples of keyword inspired trading styles.

 

Before registering a domain and worrying about hosting. Most there are many checks that are recomended by Gabriel Topman:

  1. Identify one or two clear purpose, goal or value you want to add and get back from the gloabal or local market place.

  2. Consider a name that your customers might be open minded about and you can believe in so strongly that you will be commited to it. For example Forward Outlook Ltd or Just Uber or Dell or Pickfords.

  3. Do some research on the competitive environment you are about to devote good time and money in. If you don't know what to look out for, find an honest and accountable consultant or save money by attending a seminar or course on pre-start research techniques and what to look for when preparing to enter an existing industry.

  4. Finaly after considering what your competitors are doing and if their is no competition who your substitutes are. You can go back to step one. Check and try different versions until you found a name you can push with confidence.
