You don’t have to bother much about the domain name if you are registering a domain for a personal blog or your business. But if you are starting up an informative website which focuses on a specific field it’s quite different, here are a few guidelines that could help.
- Try as much not to include special characters such as “_” except there is a need to.
- You should try to add in the major keyword into the domain name that you are focused on.
- Domain names are easily remembered if they are short, so try as much as possible not to make yours too long,just keep it attractive and short. SEO (search engine optimization) also don’t regard domain names which are too long as good.
