Deciding for a Good Domain Name
One of the challenges of starting a blog is finding the right domain name. I have discussed already in this blog the essential things that you need to consider in order to start a blog. And right now, I am going to share some ideas on how to pick your domain name the easiest and most effective. Well, as for this blog, I have chosen my name because I am going to make use of this as my personal one. And if you are still a newbie in blogging, this is your chance to learn how. And I am going to push you right to the gutter to start deciding.
The Niche of Your Blog
If you are going to decide a domain name, it is important to consider first the niche of your blog. If you are going to build a techie blog, let it also adapt the atmosphere of a technology blog. This is not just essential in making your blog sound good to the ears, but it can also be a way for your blog to be recognized easily by the search engines.
The niche of your blog will also determine the things that you are going to put in it. A good blog is something that represents the owner. If you can remember your childhood days when you were so fond of inventing names and terminologies, make that a way for you to be inspired in thinking and deciding for the name of your blog. Remember that the name you have decided, especially if you bought your blog, cannot be changed, you need to buy another one in order to alter the domain name you are not satisfied with.
There are so many kinds of domains and it’s up to you to choose depending on your needs. If you are going to pick .com which is the most famous domain name in the world which means commercial, you have so many opportunities and it can be used in so many prospects. There are also domains such as .edu which is short for education, .info for information, .org for organization, and many more. If you already found out which among these fits your domain, then it’s about time to think.
I suggest that you must think of a domain that is short enough to memorize. This is for the sake of promoting your domain. A very long domain can lead to errors in typing and being unable to memorize. So, if you are targeting a good traffic in your blog which is composed of readers, researchers, lurkers and ordinary visitors, make it easier for them to memorize your domain so that it will be possible for them to go back again.
You can think of so many ways to promote it afterwards. You can share it in social networking sites, emails, letters, printed materials or even in your shirt. Putting the domain name on the shirt is one of the most effective ways of promoting sites offline or outside the blogosphere. Are you ready to start blogging? Then act now!
