How do I choose a good domain name?
Tip: Don’t worry about picking the perfect domain name. Your domain name isn’t cast in stone, you can always change it later if you wish.
Be sure you choose a domain name that is…
1. Easy to Remember – Don’t choose a nonsensical name, something tough to spell, or a long name full of dashes. “www.best-tech-gadgets-in-the-world.com” won’t ever stick in someone’s head, but something like “www.techgeeks.com” rolls off the tongue.
2. Unique and Descriptive – You want a name that reflects who you are and what you care about. Be creative and build an identity you’re excited about!
3. Trustworthy – Domain extensions like “.com”, “.org” or “.net” are the most popular, with “.com” being the one most people think of first. Try to avoid crazy extensions like “.rocks” or “.biz”, as these are less commonly used, tougher to remember and not as trusted.
Still stuck? Just use your name as the domain name, eg JohnDoe.com. The pro is that you’re free to decide/change your blog topic later. In the meantime, you get to build your personal branding.
Type the domain name you want to use in the box, then click “next”. If the name is available, you’ll be able to claim it. If it’s not available, choose another one.
