Your Domain Name Features

Take a look at some of Qiotic tips to help you along the way:
- It’s important that the domain name that you choose needs to be relevant to your business or your industry. you won’t do very well with the search engines and you’ll have a massively high bounce rate due to visitors thinking your website is something else they’re looking for.
- Try to keep your name short and easy to spell because you want your website visitors to remember it easily and not get frustrated while trying to type in the complicated URL; which brings us to our next point.
- Make sure your domain name is uncomplicated. Besides the two points above, also avoid using numbers in place of words such as “4” instead of “for”. If you keep your words short and spelt correctly, it will prevent a lot of confusion.
- Always try to include a keyword in your domain name. Because Google and other search engines love keywords; so if your URL contains an important keyword for your website, you’ll reap the rewards.
When checking for domain name availability, always look to see if you can buy .com first. If it’s unavailable, look at your other options. If none of them are available on .com, then it’s best to start looking at country specific ones.
Domain Name Extensions
When choosing your domain name extension, or top level domain (TLD), it’s important to go for what is relevant to your business. As we mentioned, having a .com website is usually first choice, but there are so many you can choose from if .com is taken. If you’re a designer, you can choose to have the .design extension, or if you’re an online shop you can choose to have the .Store. There’s a full list of LTDs for you to take your pick from. These days, there are so many extensions to choose from, that it’s impossible to buy them all; but we do recommend that you try to secure at least .com and . co for your domain.
