Here are four easy and essential steps you should take when buying your domain name and choosing your new brand and business name :
1) Think about the domain name you want, you don’t have to be precise, but remember this is how the world will recognise you, so put some effort into it.
2) Find your domain and purchase it – if you like it at the first sight it is a lot easier to build brand on it as you will not only look at it, but over time start to love it and that will reflect upon your business and customers.
3) Choose the domain name before your choose the name of your business, because the latter can be flexible, the former may not be.
4) Consider a .com extension. That doesn’t mean you can’t buy a .net and/or a .biz too, but .com is THE standard for a commercial undertaking and any business that wants to build their own brand.
You could be asking yourself, should I start my new business with a .com domain or go for an alternative if I can buy it cheaper? That is a very important question to ask – but short answer is yes, you should chose .com in the first place. Here are a few pointers to help you decide.
If you go with alternative extension (.biz, .club, .diamond, .net, .org, .tv) you should ask yourself will I just get lost in the crowd? With all the new and upcoming extensions, will my traffic leak to more popular extensions, and will I be recognised?
While the initial cost of domain acquisition or registration may be lower for .biz, etc, there are other considerations. Some of the new extensions have high renewal fees, while .com renewals are relatively cheap – around $9-12 depending on the registrar. Nor are they likely to increase greatly in the future. For example a .luxury extension costs around $600+ to register; and in a few years you could be paying thousands to renew.
There are of course cheaper domain extensions to be found and acquire, but if you decide to develop on any other extensions you must allow for some of your traffic to leak to a similar .com domain. While that doesn’t necessarily mean you will lose clients, it does mean that the cost of acquiring the right .com domain later will be more expensive or even impossible if the owner decides to sell it to someone else or develop it himself. You must think forward. Are you running a hobby or a business? Are you likely to expand in the future? If you are serious about your business, if you are going to brand your own products or services, it is important to start with most recognisable domain extension in the world: .com.
Do you see any major corporations using alternative extensions? Nike? Facebook? Adidas? Google? Yes, they may have other domains and extensions, but are you visiting Facebook on Facebook.diamond or Nike on Nike.ooo? Buying unrecognisable or unmemorable domain extensions for cheap can be a false economy.

This is a good question. The simple answer is carefully. Whatever you are marketing, goods, services or both, you want to catch the eye of potential customers instantly, before your rivals do. There are things you can do, things you should do, and things you shouldn’t. First, let’s deal with the really important ones.
Do some research: Nowadays you can do most of this on-line. There are names you may think you can use, but you do so at your peril. Everyone has heard of Apple, the Beatles, Mcdonald’s, Microsoft…Obviously you can’t use one of these names because the brand, the corporate identity, and decades of history belong to someone else, but what if your name really is Michael Jackson, or Bill Clinton? There are plenty of Harry Potters in this world, including a barrister/TV presenter; that may be amusing when he is introduced at a party, or embarrassing if he is stopped by the police, but it could be expensive for you if an existing company sues you for infringement.
Don’t be offensive: Okay, there are some websites that are purely for fun, you can find jokes on Sickipedia, including many that may not be to your tastes, but it is easy to offend unintentionally. Anything involving religion can be dicey; if you put a cartoon of a pig on your website, don’t expect to curry favour in the Islamic world. Likewise anything related to alcohol, guns and sex can have serious drawbacks. A photograph of an attractive young woman may be an eye catcher as well as give proportion to an object, this is one reason models are used to sell furniture, but she should be appropriately dressed, and if you are hoping to sell to a wide audience, the more modestly she is dressed, the better.
Try not to be too clever either. In the UK there are a number of plumbing companies that use the name Drain Surgeon. That is borderline, but again don’t be tempted with clever puns that may backfire, or even outright vulgarity like French Connection UK. Just because it worked for someone else does not mean it will work for you.
Finally, be careful with words and phrases. Although English is now more or less universal, words don’t necessarily mean the same thing everywhere. A trivial example is pants, which to an American means his trousers, but means something entirely different in the British Isles. Words but also sometimes phrases can sound offensive in other languages, and may even be swear words, so be on your guard here too.
Now, let’s deal with the do’s. The most important thing is to keep it simple. Do not assume everyone who visits your website will understand anything complex because people have different interests, so don’t use long slogans or ones with obscure cultural references; Shakespeare is more or less universal, but can you reasonably expect African or Indian visitors to understand the relevance of 1066? In general, numbers and hyphens should be avoided as they can be quite tricky and can be hard to pass the “radio test” .
While simplicity is a good thing, some abbreviations can make life complicated. Does everyone really understand the meaning of 4U or TTYL?
Relevance is important, and here you can be as specific as you need to be. Are you selling fast food, or principally chicken? Might you want to expand at a later date?
Easy to spell, type and remember is another do – does it stay in your head? You can ask your friends / partners for their opinions.
You should stick with what’s most universal and most widely recognised when talking about domain names and that’s .com – sure there are alternatives that work ( country code top-level domain – CCTLD – .co.uk, .de, … ), but as more and more extensions become available if you go that way with newer extensions your brand can easily be lost in the pool with other similar domains and brands ( there are more than 400 already and more to come in the upcoming years ) and when you are branding your company .com is still most respected and trustworthy domain extension.
