Tips to choose the best domain name for your company

We will now uncover how best to optimize the domain name to benefit our SEO strategy.

  • Make it Short and Memorable

Let us focus on keeping the domain name short and avoid longer names that will be difficult to recollect by the user or ones which might be susceptible to mistyping. Make the domain name innovative and appealing to the user, so it leaves a lasting impression on them.

  • Incorporate Keywords

The usage of tools to arrive at vital keywords that you may associate with your brand identity will be a good place to begin. The appropriate keywords in the right places are definitely taking your business high up on the SERP rankings.

  • Use the appropriate domain extensions

Domain name extensions are the parts of the domain found at the end of the website address like.com or, .in, etc. The most popular domain extension is the .com extension, which is the most sought after one. Target the .com extensions if possible and get the most appropriate one that suits your business.

Another perspective is to make it geography specific so that your domain name gains the trust and acceptance from the target audience from your geographical location. For example, a .in or .au domain extension will inform the audience that your business is based in India or Australia, respectively.

  • Avoid usage of hyphens and numbers

The usage of numerals or hyphens may be confusing for the end-users. These could be easily misunderstood and make the user confused, whether to spell out the number or place the number or even more misplace it while typing. To make it more user friendly, kindly refrain from using numbers and hyphens.

  • Protect your brand by investing in variants

Try to purchase the various domain extensions and the misspelt versions of the domain names that may be available. This will avoid the competitors from registering the various extensions that may pull away the audience from your website.

  • Research before zeroing in on your domain name

Make sure the domain is not copyrighted, trademarked and been used by any other business. Any lapse in this aspect may result in legal complications.

  • Proactive Domain registrations

Having the foresight to register any domain that may be a potential takeaway by a competitor, will be a prudent thing to do. You could also look into registering the .netinfo versions. It would help to keep your authority and brand identity secure.

Conclusion

Domain names can act as your USP tags to promote your business and take your brand image to a different level. A focussed approach to getting the right domain name will prove beneficial in the long run and contribute to your brand success.
