You have most of the details about what a domain name is.
And now, here are my 2 cents on tips to buy a perfect domain for your website.
The best tips for buying a domain name is as follows
- Go for Top Level Domain (TLD)
It would be best if you went for .com, .net, .org domains as they are universal domains, and anyone can access the site. But if you target a local audience and not internationally, then country specified parts would work the best.
- Have a branded name
When you buy one, make sure that none of your competitors uses even similar names. It doesn’t have to have a meaning like “google” itself does not have any sense.
- Keep it short and spicy.
Most newbies try to go for fancy, great domains that don’t suit well. Ensure it includes character less than 12 characters, with no hyphens or symbols—brain Strom short ideas for your domain name.
- Try to use only words.
Please do not make it complicated by including numbers to the name unless it is necessary. Numbers, underscores, hyphens, etc. symbols make a domain quite complicated and not healthy.
- Use domain name generators
In case you cannot come up with cool ideas, you can use the domain name generator tool . There are tons of tools to generate perfect names like namemesh, domainwheel, nameboy, etc.
For a website to rank faster on Google, domain authority plays a significant role. If you have a completely new domain name, it will be a little tough to get indexed more quickly because of the domain’s authority and age.
But you still have a JACK to rank faster on google.
And that jack is popularly known as Expired domains.
There are domain names available on the web that existed, but the owner may not want to continue with it. The remarkable thing about such domains is that they have higher domain authority and are more comfortable and faster to rank on google.
If you find such a domain for your website, then you have higher chances to rank faster.
Domain names play a significant role in building a brand, so choose them wisely.
