We give you a few useful tips to help you choose the perfect domain name for your business or project.
If you’re thinking about creating a website for your business or brand, one of the first things that you need to consider is your domain name.
The domain name, in simple words, is the address that you type on your web browser to access a website. For example, our domain is blog.nic.lat.
If you’re not sure about which domain to choose, we have a few tips to help you with this important step.
1. Keep it short
When it comes to domain names, shorter is better.
We want people to remember our website easily, so it is essential to choose a short and catchy name.
Our recommendation is to aim for 6-14 characters.
2. Avoid hyphens and numbers
This point is very important! Remember that your domain name should be easy to remember and type.
Hyphens and numbers will only complicate things and confuse people, so it is better to stick to letters if possible.
3. Try to use keywords
Keywords are a great way to improve your SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
The recommendation is to put the keywords at the beginning of your domain. That’s where they’ll be the most powerful for your ranking.
4. Check for availability on social media
I don’t have to tell you how important social media is for any business! So before you choose a definite domain name you should check to see if the name is available on social media sites.
Having the same name on your website and social media pages will help you build up your brand.
5. Choose the right extension
The most popular domain name extension is probably .com, but it is not the only one. Currently you can choose from a long list of domain name extensions, such as .net, .edu, .tv, .club, etc.
If you have a business that’s geared towards the Latino community, our recommendation is that you choose a .lat domain.
