1. Think of the top 7 keywords.
When you search for a domain name it’s important that you keep 7 keywords handy that will describe your product or niche best. Do a keyword research. Use the keyword research tool by Google. Once you have them try to pair them differently or try adding prefixes and suffixes. Once you have listed then you can check on instantdomainsearch.com for it’s availability.
2. Check only for .com availability
If you’re building a website for a long term than it’s important that you choose only .com domain name. .Com domain are widely used. Also most of the internet user’s have a habit to use “ctrl+enter” keyboard shortcut after the domain name.So it’s important to make .com as the first choice. Try your best to get “.com” domain name, if unsuccessful then try for “.net” as a last option.
3. Make it easy to spell, type and remember.
Try to keep the domain name between 6 to 8 characters long which is easy to spell and remember. If a domain name needs considerable attention to type correctly, or it’s un-memorable due to it;s length like this one then you have lost a considerable good amount of portion about monetizing your blog or product. You don’t want be the company who launches awesome products, but it’s not easy to remember the company’s website!!!
4. Reject Hyphens and Numbers
Using hyphens and number might get you quick .com name but both hyphens and numbers make it hard to give your domain name verbally and falls down on being easy to remember.
5. Use an Ajax Domain Selection Tool
Sites like Instant Domain Search and Bust-a-name makes it easy to determine the availability of a domain name. Just make sure you don’t buy the domain name from these sites, just use it for checking availability of the domain name. If the domain name is available directly go to the registrar page of your choice to register the domain.
6. Check for Social Networking
If the domain name is available, don’t directly go to the registrar page to register the domain name. Check if the name is available on all top social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook and Digg. Go to Namechk.com to check if the user name is available.
