What’s in a name?

Choosing the right domain name can have a big impact on your business as you grow and develop your brand. A well-conceived domain name is the first thing visitors to your website see, and should really be thought of as the nucleus of your web presence.

Here are some points to consider when choosing a domain name

Make it descriptive of your business. Your domain name is actually a branding opportunity.

Consider how it ‘Rolls off the tongue’. Lengthy or difficult to pronounce domain names are not desirable.

Although keywords do not carry as much weight in a domain name as they once did, it’s still beneficial to use them.

Choose a dot-com name if you can – it’s still the most familiar and respected domain extension on the internet.

Your domain will build brand equity as your business grows. Changing an established domain name can negatively affect your branding and SEO ranking, so think carefully about choosing the right domain the first time.

Domain name extensions

You may find that the domain name extensions you’re using in your search are showing results for already registered domains. If this happens you can opt for a different domain name extension which is still eligible in your jurisdiction. The system will show you alternatives using the first part of your domain coupled with available options using alternative Domain name extensions.

Brand protection using Different Domain name extensions

Brand protection is a strategy that involves registering the same domain using different domain name extensions. Once you capture the variants of your domain name, your business becomes insulated from competition where new-comers register the same name with a different extension.
