choosing a domain name
"The domain name for a web site should be permanent and easy to remember"
If a web site was changing its domain name every year, how would its visitors find it when it moved?
Also, it is not easy for a visitor to remember a domain name that is not easily spoken outloud, such as www.deft23lnkk.com.
There are a few important items to consider when choosing a domain name:
Use existing words
- If possible use a combination of english words for your domain name,
like squirrels-are-great.com, but try to keep the total domain from
becoming too long.
Make up a unique name - If you create a unique name like Photon or Bitech, you will be noticed and remembered.
Domain Extensions or Types - There are many domain suffixes to choose from for a given name, i.e. .com, .net, .org, .nu, .us, etc.
