Your domain name is your online identity. It is how people find you and how you’ll be known to every visitor to your site. Just as important is the domain extension (eg .com) that you select – but it is important or totally different reasons:
- Domain Name Selection – when selecting a name, you want something short, memorable and easy to say, write and remember. Therefore avoid hyphens, numbers and symbols, and ensure it relates to your site’s purpose or brand in a easy to understand (and remember) way.
- Domain Extension Selection – while you only need one domain name extension to host your site, best practice is to purchase multiple domain extensions. This allows your customers to mistakenly type in various extensions but still get to your site, prevents others from redirecting your visitors to other sites, and can ensure your brand is globally protected and able to operate in country specific markets.
