Today, you are going to learn how to choose the right domain name for your next blog.

Did you miss the last post on starting a blog before 2017 runs out? here it is (open in a new tab) while you keep this page open.

Sure, before you start a blog you need to get a domain name but getting it is not an issue but knowing if you chosed the right one.

  • One that Represents your Business
  • One that goes well with your content
  • One that is Brand-able
  • Etc

This shouldn’t be a problem as we’d be covering it here.

You may have heard the old saying, What’s in a name?” But for a business owner, the answer is crucial.

Your brand name defines the scope and extent of your intellectual property.

It gives you an identity that is uniquely yours and cannot be legally duplicated by others.

This is why there is more in a name than at first meets the eye. When it comes to choosing domain names, you need to take all of the proper care and precautions.

The best way to do so is to make sure that the name you choose is unique to you, rather than owned by another entity who will be sure to sue you for using it.

An Original Domain Name Is the Basis of Your Public Brand

The first thing you should know is that an original domain name will be the ultimate basis of your public brand.

This is the name that the public will use to search for you on the world wide web.

It will be the name that shows up in the search rankings. It’s a good idea to choose the most unique and effective name that you can come up with, since this is the one that you will be branded with in the eyes of the public.

Your name should be;

  • short
  • simple
  • easy to remember and
  • easy to pronounce and spell.

These are all considerations that you owe it to yourself to keep fully in mind.

The Name You Choose Should Reflect Positively on Your Services

The name that you ultimately choose for your new domain should reflect as positively as possible on the services that you intend to provide for the public.

If you are a specific service provider, there should be no doubt as to what you do.

For example: if you are a plumber, you should pick a name that relates directly to this line of work.

Even if the name sounds too simple, this is the best approach to take.

Customers don’t care about a fancy pun in your domain name. They want to use the services of a plumber to fix an emergency and will contact the first one that appears in the search results.

Don’t Get Fancy, Just Make Sure That Your Domain Name Is Unique

As stated above, there is no need to get too creative or fancy when it comes to picking a name for your domain.

Your main concern will be to make sure that the name you settle on is completely unique.

You don’t want to pick a name that is identical or too close to one that is currently being used by another person.

No business owner wants to start their career being sued by another company for copyright infringement.

Your best bet is to use a domain name registry checker to make sure that no one else currently owns the name you are thinking of using for your own business.

Contact a Domain Name Service Provider to Get Started

There is no time like the present for you to choose your domain name and get it fully copyrighted.

The sooner you can contact a domain name service provider to get started, the sooner you can start raking in the profits.

Wrapping Up

Having read this post, you should not have problems with choosing the right domain name for your business or next blog.

  1. Hi Prosper,
    This is a very informative post. The Domain name is perhaps the first thing that a site visitor would notice. So, it is important for businesses and brands to choose a name that perfectly complements their business. I would also like to add that individuals who wish to start a personal blog can simply choose a domain name that matches their real name rather than going for something too fancy.
