How Do I Choose The Best Domain Name?
So you want to start a website and the first thing you need to do is pick a domain name, or URL as it is also called. You really don't really want something long or something too short. It should be easy to remember and it should tell about the business just by the domain. So say your business is called "Jim's Car Shop" you wouldn't want to pick a domain like (MyCars.com). Yes that says something about cars but it doesn't say who or what. In this case you would want something like (Jimscarshop.com or Jimscars.com) but probably not (Jimsshop.com), because while that does say its a shop it doesn't say what kind of shop.
It also depends on what type of business is it. Is it a non-profit? is it an internet business? It is a store that only sells in the US? If it is a church or something you might wanna go with a .org. If it is an internet based business you might wanna go with a .net. And if its a store that just sells in the US you might wanna go with a .us. That is just a few of domains that you can get, there are a lot more and they all have a purpose.
So now you may be asking "Where do I get a domain name?" well there are a lot of places you can buy them from but the most trusted and biggest one is GoDaddy.com.
When you go here you can search for a domain and it will tell you if its available and how much it will be. So remember you don't want something long but you don't want it too short either, you want something someone can remember off the top of their head.
