CRAZY DOMAINS

Choosing the best Domain Name for your website.

Choosing a domain name sounds simple but there are many factors to consider, some more important than others but are all still worth it in the long-term.
GeckoGrafix Web Design can help you to choose the right one for you if you wish.
The 10 things to help.
Primary Item (H2)

Make the Domain Name easy to type.

Choosing a domain name that’s easy to type is critical to online success. 
If you use slang (4 instead of for) or words with multiple spellings (color vs. colour), it might be harder for customers to find your site.

Keep it short.

If your domain name is long and complex, you risk customers mistyping or misspelling it. 
Short and simple is the way to go..

Use keywords.

Try using keywords that describe your business and the services you offer. For example, if you’re in the health business, you may want to register healthylife.com or healthylifestyle.com.
It helps improve your rank on search engines (which increases traffic) and just makes more sense to your customers.

Target your area.

If your business is local, consider including your city or state in your domain name to make it easy for local customers to find and remember. Example: Mojacarlifestyle.com.
Editor’s note:  From .it to .es or .co.uk, you’re likely to find a geographic domain extension that suits your business.

Avoid numbers and hyphens.

Numbers and hyphens are often misunderstood — people who hear your website address don’t know if you’re using a numeral (5) or it’s spelled out (five) or they misplace or forget the dash. If you need these in your domain, register the different variations to be safe.

Make it Memorable.

There are millions of registered domain names, so choosing a domain that’s catchy and memorable is essential. Once you’ve come up with a name, share it with close friends to make sure it sounds appealing and makes sense to others.

Research it.

When you choose a domain name, make sure the name you’ve selected isn’t trademarked, copyrighted or being used by another company. It could result in a legal mess that could cost you a fortune, as well as your domain!

Choose a domain name extension that fits.

Extensions are suffixes, such as .com or .net, at the end of web addresses. These can have specific uses, so make sure to choose one that works for your business. The .com domain extension is far and away the most popular, but it can be tough to get a short and memorable .com domain name because it’s been around for so long.
A bevy of new generic top-level domains — like .app, .photography, .nyc and .guru — offer a great opportunity to register short and highly relevant names. And here are some other top extensions and how they’re often used:
.co : an abbreviation for company, commerce, and community.
.info : informational sites.
.net : technical, Internet infrastructure sites.
.org : non-commercial organizations and nonprofits.
.biz : business or commercial use, like e-commerce sites.
.me : blogs, resumes or personal sites.
A tip: You don’t need to build a website for every domain. Just forward any additional domains to your primary website.

Protect and build your brand.

To protect your brand, consider purchasing various domain extensions, as well as misspelled versions of your domain name. This prevents competitors from registering other versions and ensures your customers are directed to your website, even if they mistype it.

Act fast.

Domain names sell quickly. Thankfully, many domain names are also inexpensive, so register your favorite domain names as soon as possible. If you’re having trouble finding an available name, domain registrars like CRAZY DOMAINS will suggest alternate names during your domain search to help you find the perfect domain name.
GET IT RIGHT THE 1ST TIME
Great web design instils trust in your business. 
According to web credibility research from Stanford, 75% of users admit to judging a company’s credibility based merely upon their website’s design.

Poor web design can have a drastic effect on obtaining future clientele from your website.
