Domain names

The first step when you are creating a new website is to choose the name for it. Domain names is best when they are easy to remember, short and easy to spell.

Of course if you have an established company you want select your company name as domain. Your domain will be connected to one of the tld, top level domains. The main top level domain is .com. But other alternatives if your prefered .com name is taken are .net,.org,.us, .info, .biz and many country specific domains as .to,.tv.

Register the domain name which are your brand name if you already have a known brand. It will be easier to market and for people to remember.

Avoid hyphenated names like my-domain-here.com beacause they are harder to market and to remember.

And at last get that domain name before somebady else does.
