Domain registration tips
Tips for the best domain registration practice.
Choose your business or organization name as the domain name.
It’s very important that your domain name and your business name are the same. Why, in this era of brands you can’t afford to feed two beasts – a domain name and a company name.
Keep your domain name short
Yes, there is no good domain name anymore after all .com have been sold. – that is no excuse. Get a short domain name – under 12 characters or less is ideal.
Make sure your domain name is easy to remember
Can be unique, simple, and memorable – any of the three can serve you better but all the three can combine for a perfect choice of a domain.
Stick to popular extensions
.com, .net, .co.ke, .com.ng, .co.uk. .in, .org, . are relatively common and easy to remember. Unless you have need to use a niche extension like .cloud, .io, .hotels, .travels .lawyers, .info – stick to the popular extension s so that it is easy to remember for people.
Buy alternative domain extension for your domain
If your domain is a .com consider buying a .co.ke or.com.ng or .co.uk or .net just to protect your brand. It may cost a fortune much later to rebuy the domain extension when it will be hurting your brand.
