THE IMPORTANCE OF A GREAT DOMAIN NAME AND HOW TO GET ONE
by Glenn Wallace
The purchase of a domain name is probably the single most
influential investment you will make on the internet.
You definitely should have your business name registered as
a domain name. This will transfer the goodwill that is in
your current name to the internet.
You should also have another domain name which would be
generic in nature which expresses what you are offering and
is easily recognisable. This is a great way of attracting
new customers and retaining current customers.
It is also a good idea to have a shortened version of your
domain name so that existing customers have a quick way of
accessing your website.
Some Reasons why you should have your own domain name.
Your potential customer is going to be more influenced,
feel more comfortable to do business with you if you have
your own domain name. The better the domain name the more
attention you will command. If you have a great domain name
you will earn instant respect from your potential customer.
The customer will already be partly presold before they
read any deatils of your offer. A great generic type domain
name sets you apart from your competition. You really stand
out from the crowd.
Alot of the search engines these days look at the domain
name as one of the factors which determine how high to rank
your site in the search engine listings.
If your domain name includes some keywords that your
potential customers will be using to search for your type
of sites then they are more likely to find you if you have
a domain name that includes those keywords. For this
purpose it doesn't really matter whether it is a .com, .net
etc it is the keywords that matter. There have been new
domain name extensions recently eg .biz and .info. This has
greatly increased the chance of getting a great keyword
If you have a great domain name you will get the benefit of
using it while you have it and you can always sell it if
you decide that you no longer need the domain name. The
.com names have the best recognition and resale value.
How to get a great domain name.
The cheapest way of getting a great domain name is to
register a name that is still available. There are still
