How to Choose a Domain Name (2019) | 19 Tips and Tools

How To Choose a Domain Name for Blog?

Choosing the right domain name for your website is crucial for your success. If you choose the wrong domain name, then it can be a hassle to switch later on without hurting your brand and search rankings.

Full disclosure: I earn a commission if you end up purchasing any of the domain (and web hosting) services through referral links in this guide. This helps me to keep Electrobot up and running and up-to-date. Thanks for your support.

Why is your domain name so important?

  • It’s your “first impression”. Your URL is the first thing your visitors will see. A good domain name can make a positive and lasting impression, while a bad domain name can send visitors running.
  • It affects SEO. While exact match domains (EMDs) are no longer a necessity, keywords in your domain name can still help your SEO ranking.
  • It defines your brand. We’ll talk about this in a minute – your domain name is a branding opportunity! The right domain name can increase brand recognition.

It’s extremely important that you choose the best domain name from the start for yourself.

When first starting out, it can be hard to come up with catchy business name ideas with a perfect domain for a blog.
In this article, we’ll share all the tools and tips you need to get domain name ideas, choose the best domain name, and register your new domain (for free). So, how to choose a domain name for your blog? Let’s get started…

What is a domain?

domain name

A domain consists of two parts; the name followed by the extension.

For example, with apple.com – apple is the name and .com is the extension.

Domain: electrobot.co

URL: https://electrobot.co/

You can’t have a website without a domain name. Like a street address that tells people where you live, a domain helps customers drive directly to your website.

How to Choose a Domain Name For Your WordPress Website (#19 Top Tips & Strategies)

#1. Always Go for the .com

Let me say this again: Wherever possible, always go for a .com domain.

Technically speaking, the .com is just one of many domain name extensions (TLDs) that are available (more on TLDs and other components of a domain name here). Some of the other popular options include, .net, .org, .co, .edu, .biz, or even things such as .shop, or .blog.
And while all those fancy TLDs are tempting, getting the classic .com is nearly always the right thing to do.

Electrobot uses .co extension because .com was already taken.
The shorter the better. Electrobot.co is a great example though.

 

Two reasons:

1. People are more familiar with .com domains than with anything else; they will default to typing ‘.com’ into the browser address bar, and are unlikely to remember your extension if it’s too weird. Everyone will always assume a website is a .com.

2. The .com TLD is used by ~47% of all websites, data says. Can they all be wrong?
What all of this means is that if your perfect .com is taken, then perhaps you should either forget about that name entirely or try contacting the current owner to see if they’re willing to sell the domain to you. Warning! This could be expensive.

#2. Keep it Unique and Brandable

Your blog domain name must be unique, so you can stand out in your readers’ minds. It’s smart to research other blogs in your niche and find out what domain names they’re using.

#3. Keep Your Domain Name Short

While keywords are important, don’t go overboard with domain length. It’s better to have a domain name that’s short and memorable. We recommend keeping your domain name under 15 characters. Longer domains are harder for your users to remember. Not to mention, users will also be more prone to entering typos with longer domain names which can lead to loss traffic. That’s why it’s a good idea to keep your domain length short.

You don’t want to accidentally use a trademark name or get accused of copying another blogger. You can also choose to pick a domain name that’s more brandable.
Brandable domain names are unique, catchy, and memorable. For example, “Amazon.com” is a much more brandable name than “BuyBooksOnline.com.”

#4. Use Keywords in Your Domain Name Search

Keywords play an important role in a domain. By using keywords in your domain name, you tell the search engines what your website is about. Together with quality content and good user experience, keywords in your domain can help you rank higher in Google.
It is very hard to find a good domain with your target keywords, that’s not already taken.

 

You will need to be creative and combine your keywords with other words to make your domain stand out.

#5. Act Quickly Before Someone Else Takes it​

Each day thousands of new domain names are registered from all parts of the world. If you have found a domain name that you like, then don’t wait too long.

Domain names are like real estate. Thousands of people are actively looking for good brandable domain names that they can register for better rates in the future.

If you don’t act fast, then someone may go ahead and register your domain idea.
Since domain names are relatively cheap, we always recommend our readers to act fast. If you change your mind later, then you can simply let it expire.

#6. Avoid Double Letters

It’s a good idea to avoid domains with doubled letters because it increases your chances of losing traffic to typos. For example, a domain like Presssetup.com will be more prone to typos and result in lost traffic. Avoiding doubled letters will also make your domain easy to type and more brandable.

#7. Avoid Hyphens in Domain Name

Never create a domain name with hyphens. Hyphens can be a sign of spam domains which you do not want to be associated with.

 

Hyphenated domains are also prone to typos. If you choose a domain name with hyphens because the domain you want is already taken, then your users will likely end up at your competitor’s site if they forget to type in the hyphen.

#8. Easy to Type

Think of some of the most popular websites in the world. What comes to mind?

Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Yahoo, CNN…

One big thing they have in common is that they’re all easy to spell. Your visitors should be able to type your domain name without a problem. If you have to explain the spelling more than once for it to be understood, it’s too complicated!

The last thing you want is for the potential visitors to mistype your domain and end up on a different website!
Here’s an easy way to test this…

Ask people your potential domain name to spell it. If more than a few people struggle to spell it, you need to simplify it.

#9. Think Long-Term

Are you thinking long-term?

You should be because it will be one of the biggest elements that define your business and brand for years.
If you decide to change the domain in the future, it will cost you money, branding, and SEO rankings. In short – it’s a huge pain!
When you choosing your domain, think long-term.

For example, if your company helps businesses optimize their websites for SEO, you could choose a domain name like, “OptimizedSEO.com”
If you think there’s a chance you might expand to more general digital marketing services in the future, like email marketing, PPC, etc. then it might be wise to reconsider your domain name.
You don’t want to pin yourself down to a certain niche if you think you might expand out of that niche.
Therefore, keep your long-term vision in mind when picking your domain name.

#10. Check Availability on Social Media Sites and Trademarks

Before you move forward with a specific domain name, check to see if the name is available on social media sites, as well as if there are any trademarks already registered to the name.
To build your brand, it’s ideal to have the same name across your domain and social networks. This builds familiarity and makes it easy for your visitors, fans, and customers to find you around the web.

Avoid legal issues, you should stay away from names that already have trademarks.
How can you quickly check social networks and trademarks for your potential domain name?
It’s quite easy with a tool like Knowem. Search your potential domain name – it’ll show you if it’s available throughout over 25 popular social networks and if there are any trademarks already registered to the name.

If it’s taken, consider tweaking it so that you can create original social media profiles.

#11. Use the Right Domain Name Extension

When you choose your domain name extension, you can be sure of one thing: “.com” is still the best.

According to research from DomainNameStat, 43% of all domains have the “.com” extension.

 

Why? Well, “.com” is the most familiar and easiest to remember.
While there are many successful websites with a “.net” and “.org”, your website will probably do better if it has a “.com” extension. It’s the safest bet.

My advice: Go with .com. If that’s taken, try .net or .org. If these are taken too, you’d be better off brainstorming a new domain name. And oh! – Avoid those weird extensions like “.club”, “.space”, “.pizza” and so on.

#12. Use a Domain Name Generator to Gather Ideas

At this point, you should have at least a general idea of some possible words to put in your domain. Some of those words may already be taken, trademarked, or just don’t have the “sound” you’re looking for.
That’s where domain name generators come into play. These generators can turn your ideas into fresh, available domains.

Here are some of our favorite domain name generators to try out:

#1 Wordoid. This tool allows you to plug in a word, it will come up with ideas that either contain that word, begin with that word or end with that word.
#2 Lean Domain Search. This tool matches your keyword with other keywords and generates a list of available domains.
#3 DomainHole. This tool allows you to search keywords, find expired domains, generate new names, and more.

Bonus tip:

If you’re starting a blog, podcast or your personal website, it may be best to use your own name!


This helps you become more recognizable. What’s more – simply owning the domain of your name can be a good strategy.

If your blog/website/speaking career makes it big, you may become a household name – and that domain, “YourName.com” may become a hot commodity. You’ll be glad you have it!
Now, if your name is a bit long, difficult to spell/pronounce, or the domain is already taken, consider using a nickname or even a combination of your first name and middle name.

#13. Select the best domain name based on simple criteria

At this point, you’re ready to narrow down your shortlist and finish out the process of how to choose a domain name.

Part of this process is subjective – after all, it’s important to choose a domain name you like. However, there are also some simple criteria you can use to make the decision easier.
For best results, you’ll want to pick a domain name that is:

  • Concise and clear. Long and confusing names are harder to remember and easier to mistype.
  • Creative and memorable. The more unique you can make your domain name (while keeping it clear and concise), the more memorable it will be.
  • Easy to read and pronounce. Avoid numbers and special characters because they’re confusing when spoken aloud. It’s also worth asking your friends to pronounce it as well, so you avoid accidentally ending up on this list.

Finally, it’s also important to carefully consider your domain name’s Top-Level Domain (TLD).
In simple terms, this is the part at the end – .com, .org, .net, and so on. For many sites, .com is the best choice, since it’s what most visitors will expect and is easiest to remember. However, it’s getting harder and harder to find quality .com domain names, and users are becoming more accustomed to other extensions. So if you absolutely love a non-.com name, go ahead and buy it.

The only thing to be careful with is TLDs that apply to a specific region (like .co.uk or .ca). Google uses these to help goetarget websites, so only pick those extensions if you really do want Google to geotarget your site.

#14. Register your new domain name

After settling on the right combination of keyword-based name and TLD, all you need to do is buy the domain name. The way you do this will often depend on the hosting provider you decide to use.

You can usually purchase a domain name during the process of signing up for a hosting plan. In addition, you can buy a domain separately through a dedicated registrar or hosting company. If you’ve chosen a name using Domain Wheel, you can even use the View Details button to go straight to a checkout page:

Of course, you don’t have to get your hosting and domain name from the same place. If you pick up a domain name elsewhere, you can still connect it to your new or existing site after the fact. How this works will depend on the web host you’ve chosen. You should check out your provider’s documentation or ask their support team for assistance when making the transfer.

#15. Consider using your name

I highly recommend registering your name as a domain even if you have no plans to do anything with it. Why?

Because you never know if you just might become a household name in the future. And then you’ll be glad you have it.

If you plan on using your blog to sell a service you provide or if you hope to speak or become a published writer, your name might be perfect.

If you have a really difficult name to say or spell, consider using your first and middle, or a nickname, or make up a new name altogether (yes, people really do that).

#16. Don’t overthink it

I hear from a lot of people who get stuck at this point because they’re afraid of making the wrong choice. The most common problem is that they can’t find an available .com. If this is you, just make your best guess and move on. A not-quite-perfect domain name is better than no domain name at all. Just do your best and own it!

#17. Choose a Brandable Name

We all know that branding is crucial to long-term success, but what exactly makes a domain name brandable? There are many factors that come into play here, but the most important ones are as follows:

  • A brandable name has no specific meaning (eg ‘Google’ is not a word, ‘YouTube isn’t one either).
  • It’s unique — your competition doesn’t use anything similar.
  • It’s easy to memorize — not too wordy, no complex vowel combinations.
  • It’s easy to pronounce and dictate over the phone.
  • It sounds trustworthy — some names can be a little shady by definition, for instance, WinTheLotteryToday.com may be too bold, but Lotterio.com sounds way better.

To make the brainstorming process easier, you can experiment with some combinations of actual words and random suffixes, like I did with the Lotterio.com example above.

The main goal here is to create a potential for the domain name to build brand value over time.
In other words, as much as possible, try making sure the name has a good ring to it. It should be fun to say out loud, and not difficult to memorize immediately. Think about the likes of Uber: It’s short and snappy, and there’s no confusion as to how to spell it — even when mentioned in passing in a conversation.

#18. Be Careful When Buying Existing Domain Names

As I mentioned a couple of points above, buying an existing domain name is a bit different from buying a new one. First of all, since it’s not new, this means it already has a history. And you can never be entirely sure what that history is.

  • On the bright side, the domain’s history may give you a boost in Google since you’re not starting from scratch — Google already knows the domain.
  • But, on the flip side, if the domain has featured any kind of ‘non-kosher’ stuff (porn, gambling, spam content, email spam distribution), then it may be banned from Google entirely.

Buying your domain from a marketplace such as Flippa gives you some safety, since every domain is validated at least in the most basic way. However, to make things a bit safer, you should also perform checks of your own.

First, do a manual check by going to Google and searching for:
site:YOURDOMAIN.com

This will tell you whether Google has any pages indexed from that domain. Finding anything is a good sign. It means the domain isn’t banned. Not finding anything doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker, though.

  • If the domain is blank — no website — then there’s nothing for Google to find in the first place.
  • However, if there is a website but Google can’t see it (via the site:YOURDOMAIN.com phrase), this is a red flag.
    You can also do checks via tools such as bannedcheck.com and ismywebsitepenalized.com. But also keep in mind that these things are not foolproof. Consider them helpers.

#19. Check the Domain History via who.is

Right after Wayback Machine, who.is is your other go-to tool for getting to know the history of a given domain name. This one is very useful for at least two reasons:

  • First, you can see the current domain info — stuff like who the owner is (provided they don’t have ID protection — more on that later) — who the registrar is, and so on. There’s no point in me listing everything here — just go to who.is, input your favorite website and see what’s up.
  • Second, who.is gives you access to a ‘whois history report’. This is a paid service — $10 — but the price tag is rather small in relation to what you get in return, which is all the whois data associated with a given domain name from the very beginning. This means that you can see what the domain’s history is, when it was registered, and how many times it potentially changed hands.

In the end, if you’re considering getting an existing domain, which can be quite pricey, spending an additional $10 doesn’t seem that brutal. Plus, it can save you headaches later on.

Purchasing an available domain name

Once you’ve determined whether your domain is available, you will want to purchase it from a domain registrar or web hosting company. Some web hosts will register a domain name for you for free (usually for one year) when you buy a web hosting services from them, while others will do it for you, but you’ll have to cover the registrar fees (an annual fee of $10 – $15 for the “.com” domain).

It’s a personal preference whether to register the name directly, with a domain name registrar, or with the web host. In any case, you want to make sure you are assigned as the owner, the administrative, and technical contacts for the domain name you purchased. If you are buying multiple domains, it might be easier to use one good registrar. But, if you are buying a domain name and planning to make a website or use it for custom email purposes, it will be easier to go with the hosting company (hosting account) and keep everything under one roof.

One thing’s for sure. You have to find a reliable company to register your domain with. There are hundreds of companies available and we will recommend the best ones from our experience, both registrars, and hosts. If you decide to pick a company on your own, here are some things to consider when choosing one.

ICANN-Accreditation

Always buy your domain from a reputable domain registrar company and one that is registered with ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).

Your domain registrar should be accredited by ICANN, a non-profit organization existing to define how the domain name system functions and expands. They coordinate unique identifiers across the world to ensure the web is truly worldwide.

When choosing your domain registrar, you will want to check out the price and top-level domain availability (everyone does .com, but not everyone does specific country top-level domains and the new topic-specific top-level domains). A couple of safe options are Namecheap and GoDaddy.

Your web hosting company may offer a domain for a blog as well as hosting. There are pros and cons to whether you should buy through them or buy them independently.

When I started blogging, I purchased my domains through GoDaddy. It is still there and I moved my hosting to Hostinger.

I think it makes sense, in the long run, to let a hosting company do the hosting and the domain registrar deal with domains.

Tip: Keeping your domain name and hosting account separate will involve extra operations, such as pointing DNS records from your domain registrar to the hosting company before launching and making your new website. This is not a complicated task and most registrar companies have step-by-step description of that process.

Research the seller and domain

Finding the best Domain For You?

Does the seller have a documented history of previous sales? Does he have a blog or social media profiles that could give you insight to his standing, views, and opinions? What is his favorite breakfast cereal? Every tidbit of information you can gather on the seller could help you in negotiations.

Before you purchase an already used domain, you will want to see what has been published on that domain in the past to ensure it has a good reputation. You don’t want to purchase a domain that has hosted adult content or has a bad backlink history that you may have to clean up. Use Archive.org to see what content has been on a website in the past and use Cognitive SEO Site Explorer to check backlinks. If something looks suspicious don’t buy it.

Your new domain is going to be your branded business name. You need to ensure that future social media profiles are available. Use Knowem.com to quickly check profile availability for your new brand and instantly reserve handles from services like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and others. It’s probably not a good idea to buy a brandable domain if its corresponding social profiles that are already taken.

#. Closing the deal

Be patient when buying a premium domain, the process is completely different from simple domain registration. Rarely will you immediately reach a mutually agreed upon price. Sometimes waiting on a deal for a few weeks and checking with the owner later will result in a success at a better price.

If the price is too high, try to work with the owner to agree on a “lease-to-own” or “partial payments” deal for the domain name. This way you won’t need to pay a big chunk of money up front.

If the owner has agreed to sell the domain, try to get the agreement in writing if possible. Or better, draft and sign a purchase agreement with the buyer. This will legally dictate the terms of the purchase and protect both parties. Next step, you’ll have to make the payment. Don’t just wire money to the buyer once you have reached an agreement. You need a secure transaction to protect you from any fraud activities. Use a secure service such as Escrow.com to close the deal.

Some General things to be aware of:

  • Legal conflicts: Spend a bit of time searching around to make sure you are not choosing a domain name that is similar to an already established rival. You don’t want to spend time building your blog only to find out that someone else has a similar website and wants to sue you.
  • Avoid Copyright Issues: Make sure the name you are going to use is not copyrighted.
  • Be aware of the scammers: There are a lot of scammers around, so try to make sure you buy your domain name from a registrar who is in the ICANN’s (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) accredited registrar’s list.

As I have mentioned earlier that these rules are not set in stone. Don’t be afraid to add your own flavor. Use common knowledge and be sensible. Try your best and get creative. What is your best tip in choosing a good domain name? Feel free to leave your suggestions or comments below.

What Are Domain Name Generators?

Also known as a blog name generator, these are websites that help you come up with a name based on a certain criteria. For example, they might ask you to enter a few words relevant to your niche, such as “Car” and “Engine” for an automotive website.

Finally, they mix/merge these words (along with other close variations) and show you a list of potential results.

Some services are quite advanced, allowing you to choose a domain name length and even showing whether it’s already registered.

Here are some popular domain name generators to consider:

Best Places to Buy a Domain Name

how to choose a domain name for your blog

There are hundreds of domain registrars on the web. It’s important to choose carefully because it can be difficult to move your domain later on.

Just like with web hosting, pricing for domain registrations can vary anywhere from $9 to $24. You can even get it for free*.

There are plenty of places to find domain names online so the choice is really up to you as far as who to choose as your registrar. Below are a few choices for registering a URL.

GoDaddy

When looking for a place to buy domains, GoDaddy is the big kid on the block. They are one of the most popular options that most people choose when buying domains and they often run deals to help you save a great deal of money when you first registrar a domain with them.

They also have an area when domains are auctioned off, so you can buy a domain name from someone else who has the URL you’re looking for and are willing to see.

Though GoDaddy is the most popular option, they do tend to charge quite a bit more when it comes to renewing your domains with them and WHOis privacy (something you’ll want) is hardly ever free. Average cost for renewing a domain for two years will run you around $50, which isn’t terrible but still worth noting.

NameCheap

This is another popular domain registrar and has a couple advantages when compared to GoDaddy.

As far as price goes, NameCheap is almost always cheaper to renew considering their .com extensions run around $10 with no discounts applied. Domains purchased through NameCheap also come with Free WHOis Protection which saves you close to $10 as well. Personally, I love to buy my personal URLs from them.

NameSilo

The pricing provided by NameSilo is absolutely outstanding, there is no other service I’ve come across provides domains at those rates. They also do not restrict the pricing to the first domain registration and there are additional discounts when you order in bulk, above 49 domains which are cool.

The support is absolutely great, another thing about them is the user interface, you can manage your domain very easily when registered with them, there are shortcuts to every setting like Nameservers and DNS.

Another interesting feature is the domain defender service that helps you save your domain from theft and is very essential where domain theft and piracy is everywhere.

Your Host Provider

Many host providers offer the choice to purchase a URL or to get one for free when you sign up. Though many prefer to have their hosting and domains separated, there are some who like the convince of keeping them together.

Bluehost offers a free URL when you sign up with them and other providers like SiteGround have an area in the members area where you can search and purchase multiple domains and save them on your account. Hostinger also provides a Domain for free with their yearly plan.

Let’s take a look at how you can easily buy a domain for a blog

Free Domain Registration with Web Hosting

Majority of web hosting companies also offer best domain name registration as a service. Some of those companies offer free domain registration with new hosting accounts.

If you’re starting a new website, then it’s a smart idea to take advantage of this offer and get your domain name for free.

Below are the three WordPress hosting companies that are offering our users over 60-90% off web hosting, free SSL certificate, and a free domain name:

Bluehost is one of the oldest and largest brand name when it comes to web hosting. They’re an official “WordPress” recommended hosting provider.

iPage powers over 1 million websites and is the most budget-friendly web hosting provider on the web. $1.99 / month for web hosting, and you get a free domain name.

Hostinger has also a free SSL and a .com domain registration on their premium plans which is as same plan like Bluehost approx. $2.50/ month for period of 1 year.

InMotion Hosting provide a free domain and domain registration with the purchase of a hosting plan and will take care of everything for you.

It’s important to keep in mind that most hosts offer free domain registrations for 1 year only. After the first year, your domain for a blog or website registration will renew at usually around $14 per year.

A lot of users take advantage of the free best domain name for the first year because you would have to pay for the domain name regardless, why not get it for free.

Most Popular Domain Registrars

If you just want to register a domain name without purchasing hosting, then you can do that by purchasing it from a domain name registrar.

Domain.com is one of the best domain registrars on the market. They offer all top-level domain names, with a smart search feature, premium domains, and all the necessary tools to manage your domain names.

GoDaddy is the largest domain registrar in the world. They manage over 63 million domain names for over 14 million customers.

Let's Summarize!

how to choose a domain name for your blog

When you’re about to create a website, there are two things you need: (1) someplace to host your site, and (2) a name for your site.

 

These two things act like your virtual property and address where people will come in order to find you online. Both are rather easy to jump into and pick out as far as getting them, but CHOOSING them is another story.

 

When it comes to your domain name, the world is your oyster. There are hundreds of thousands of names you can pick from and an ever growing selection of extensions to choose from in order to become your new digital home address. However, just because it’s easy to buy one of these domain names doesn’t mean that you don’t have a big decision to make.

 

In fact, much like buying a home with the best address in town, your domain name is probably one of the biggest choices you have to make because picking the wrong domain name can be like buying the perfect house in the wrong zip code — bad investment choice.

 

But don’t get overly worried about this either. Choosing a domain name, though important, isn’t hard to do, but it does take some time and thought on your end.

Before you just jump in and buy the first domain name that suits your fancy, here are some things to consider to make sure you’re picking from the cream of the crop.

When you’re searching for information about ranking your site with SEO, you’ll often find two schools of thought on domain names. Either people stick to the idea of that keyword based URLs are the way to go or they say that keywords in your domain doesn’t matter at all.

So which is true?

Well, if this was 2010 and Google Penguin wasn’t around, then yes, you should stick to your guns about choosing keyword based domain names because they would have been a good thing. But with Google changing up SEO and refining her algorithm updates (yes, I often refer to Google as a woman), you may have a losing fight on your hands.

 

As many of you already know, Google no longer places any value of SEO tactics that try and help a site sneak up the page when they don’t deserve it. Now that’s not to say that Keyword Based Domains will get you slapped with a penalty by Google, but those type of URLs don’t seem present the same SEO value now as they did back in the day.

Does that mean that you should avoid keywords in your domain altogether?

 

Well, no, not exactly. Keywords in your domain name can still be a good thing because they can give your potential viewers an idea of what your site is about.

For example, if your site is going to be on the topic of gluten-free living, the a URL of GlutenFreeLiving.com can be a good domain name for many reasons including the fact that the name tells viewers what your site is about, however, choosing that name doesn’t mean you’re going to see an SEO benefit.

Final Thoughts

I know, I know, choosing to buy a blog domain name is a pretty exciting thing to do. I absolutely love it.

However, it’s no longer 2000 and the best possible domain names are (probably) already taken. For example, there are currently more than 182,000,000 active domain names registered.

Your domain for a blog or website which you will get connected to for sure after a year or two. And you can’t just let it go and that’s why it is one of the most important step for your online career.

A catchy and unique domain for a blog is a huge step if you trying to make your website a brand. ThisIsWhyImBroke is one such example. You know when you hear that name immediately unique and unusual products comes to our mind and that’s the power of a catchy domain name.

As you can see, a lot of thought can go into picking the best domain name for your blog. But with these tips and tools (and by not overthinking the matter) you can have your blog fully set up with a beautiful name in no time. So you must be cleared by now how to choose a domain name for your blog?

So go forth and find the best domain name you can!

  1. Hi Sourav,
    I enjoyed your article on “How to Choose a Domain Name.”

    I wish I had come across this article sooner. When I chose my domain name, I certainly had the hardest time coming up with an idea. Therefore this article would have helped out. I got tired of waiting around and just picked a random name.

    I was not satisfied with the name at all. Therefore, I changed it two times. Didn’t like those names. So, I changed it back. I know what a waste of time. The point is it was a hassle. I lost all traffic and SEO rankings. So, you’re right take time and choose your domain name.

    I guess the best part about my final choice is my domain name has keywords in it.

    And after working to get everything back in order, my traffic, SEO, and rankings are now back on track.

    Either way, I agree with you and your entire article. If anyone reads my comment, I suggest you take Sourav, advice and think for long term success because, once you choose a domain name it is definitely a hassle to change everything around.

    Thanks for sharing this very informative article…

    Have an amazing day ahead! 😀
