Your online identity is centered on your domain name. This is why you need to take certain things into consideration when choosing a domain name for your website.

1. Short Better
There are domain name registrars that will allow you to register a domain name that contains up to 63 characters. However, you need to understand that the longer the domain name is, the more difficult for people to remember. You need to find the shortest name you can think of that can be easily related to your site.

2. Go to .com
Now there are so many extensions available, however, for the business does not work better than com. It is always the first extension that comes to mind for many people when they search the site. Com extension is always associated with e-commerce.

3. Name Trademarks Should Be Avoided
Although there have been people who make a lot of money by buying a few names .com and sell to big companies, it's not a very good idea. Remember that you need a domain name for your company's website and that means choosing a name that can be associated with your site and not someone else's business. Another thing is that most companies are no longer so quick to open their wallets, most of the time, they call their lawyers.

4. Registration Right Away
The domain name is lost very rapidly as more and more websites are going online. If you want to make sure that you get the name of your choice for your website, then you need to register as soon as possible.

5. Registration More than One
Once you have your domain name is registered, it may be a good idea to get other similar domains registered using different extension. For example, if you are already registered probably a good idea to register so that no one else is using it. You can also register some names that might actually be a common misspellings of the original domain names registered initially.

6. Make Sure You Have Many Choices
When you try to decide a domain name for your website, you need to create a list of names that you want to consider as your site's domain name. This is because there is no guarantee that your first choice domain name is available and it is always a good idea to have a list of names that you want.

7. Make It Easy To Spell
When you choose a domain name, you need to make sure that it is not only memorable but also easy to spell. A complicated domain name means that one can easily make a spelling mistake, and if you are not careful, spelling mistakes can bring them to a different website altogether. You may end up losing business.

Choosing a domain name can be a simple process as long as you keep the above tips in mind.

Of-course you are right to choose a domain name.
I think the main part of choosing a domain name is the registration going.
