Step 1: Choose a Domain Name

Is the domain name of your choice available for purchase? Let’s check

Why & What

Obviously, the very first step in a website design is choosing the website domain name.

A website URL comprises a domain name of maximum 67 characters and a top-level domain name (.com, .in, etc.).

If you already have a brand, the domain name choice becomes obvious. For example, Sony.com or PreetisSpa.com. Otherwise, the domain name should contain the major keywords applicable to your product/service. For example, thesitewizard.com or HomeRepairExpert.com.

Most preferred top-level domain (TLD) is .com (75% of the websites.) You can choose one of the generic TLDs (.com or .net), special TLDs (.org or .edu), regional TLDs (.in, .asia, .me, etc.), or specialty TLDs (.biz, .xxx, .tv etc.).

Next, check availability of the domain name. One of the best services is https://www.whois.net/.

Suggestions

  • Most successful websites have average 9 characters in their domain name.
  • If you want to create a geeky brand name, you can think of combining digitals and names as well like 37signals.com
  • If possible use keywords related to your product or service in the domain name
  • Use existing words (Amazon.com, Twitter.com), invent new words (Google.com, Bing.com), or join two (or more) words in a creative way (GroupOn.com, Pinterest.com)
