It’s a very common thing of having a blog these days. Most people create their own blog to publish their thoughts in front of the world and also the businessmen do it to introduce their products. But the question is how you make your own blog and how you make it more interesting to the people on internet. Well in that case the domain name of your blog plays a huge role.
Understanding the domain naming process.
Domain is simply just the URL of your website. The process of domain naming is also very simple. For that first you have to buy the domain name from them who is already registered in ICANN (Internet Corporation for assigned names and numbers). A well established domain registering company should be consulted.
Once you are registered than you have to pick a name and after that they will tell you that the name you have chosen is associated with any other brand or not. If it is, than you can go with different extensions. I prefer to get the “.com” top level domain extensions. You can also help yourself with “.net” and “.org” if you do not get “.com”.
Now when you have started your own website you must also know the fact that, you have to renew it before the expiry date. And if the domain gets expired then it is kept in a pool and can be retrieved through the auctions of all those expired domain names. This kind of job is generally done by domain booking company all over the world.
Key things to remember while picking up a good domain name
First thing when you are naming your blog or site is the name must short, simple and easy to remember. If the domain name is short it is easy to remember and people use it more often because it is easy to type a small domain name.
Second thing is, you must use keywords while naming your blog or site. Give a name that gives a good idea about the site. That helps the people watching it to get the concept nice and easy.
Third thing is, try to keep it local which helps more to the user and it becomes more specific for the use.
Another thing is try to use hyphens if needed. It improves readability and also improves the search engine rank.
Things you shouldn’t do while domain naming
Yes, it is important that your blog has a good domain name that is catchy or attractive. Because if you want to change the domain name it means starting all over again from the beginning which effects your blog. And if it is already a famous blog and established enough it becomes harder for you to make that same establishment all over again. The Google page rank and the other rankings will automatically drop down to zero.
Yes you can change the domain hosting provider if you want to on the basis of how reliable your hosting provider is but changing domain name is not a thing you will want to do in future if you already have an established blog.
