An important purpose of domain names is to provide easily recognizable and memorizable names to users.Naming a site after its domain name is important, for the simple reason that when people think of your website, they’ll think of it by the name. If your name is also your URL, they’ll automatically know where to go. For example, when people think of tuc-webhost.com, they don’t have to wonder what URL to type into their browser to get there. The name of the site is also the URL, you get what am try to say.
It pays to have a domain name that reflects your site or business.Before buying your domain name, give some thought to the following:-
1.Get a matching domain name
A risk you will take in not picking a matching name is losing returning visitors as they might remember the name of your site but not the URL, if it is different. Also, try to give your site, and domain, a name that reflects what the site is about. If your site is about fishing, make sure that the name somehow reflects the world of fishing.
The most traditional, and perhaps also best, way of trying to find a domain name is in looking for a domain that matches the name of your site. Say that you have a site named Whatever We Want – then your domain name should be www.whateverwewant.com, also known as a branded domain name. This is even more so important when your site becomes a household name on the web as you want your visitors to find it as easy as possible.
2.The Domain Name Should be Short
This is important to think about as it is a fact that people do not remember a domain name if it is too long. Another advantage with a short domain name is that it will be easier for your visitors to spell. Keep in mind though that you should not keep the domain name short just for the sake of keeping it short. Keep them relatively short.
3. A good domain name is memorable.
You remember generic names, such as Art.com and Garden.com. But you also remember more unique names such as Amazon.com, Google.com, Tuc-wewbhost.com and FogDog.com. Putting together strange combinations of words is fun and can be very productive.
Whatever your domain name, it should stick in the mind.A good domain name isn’t easily confused with others.
4. A good domain name is hard to misspell.
