The Frustrations Of Acquiring A Great Domain Name
One of the most frustrating things that people encounter when starting to start a new website, is acquiring a great domain name.
When trying to think of ideas to use, for names that make sense, one can spend hours upon hours trying to register the name they come up with, only to find that it's not available.
I have done this a time or two in the past, it can cause quite a headache, that's for certain!
Someone can make a beautiful website, loaded with great content, and put all of their heart into running it. Yet if they do not have a fabulous domain name, then they are wasting a lot of time and effort.
The domain name is the core of brandability, and as such, one should put a lot of thought into what they choose to register.
The general rules I follow when registering a new name are:
- Is it short enough to remember?
- Does it make sense?
- Does it reflect my niche properly?
- Does it have a .com extension?
- Does it have at least one main keyword related to my niche?
If I can not answer yes to every single one of these key points, then I will not register it.
I consider it to be a waste of time to build a business using nothing but the BEST, that means best design, best content, and BEST domain name.
I use a fantastic service to find great, available domain names, that are related to any niche I choose to search for.
This service is provided at ExpiredDomains.net and is completely free of charge. I have used this service for many years, and have only once encountered a problem with a name I registered.
Once, I registered a name that google had blocked from its results. When I discovered this, I had a choice, keep it and get it unblocked, or try for another.
I decided to keep it, and six months later, I was able to finally get it unblocked. I still use this particular name to this date, because it's an outstanding domain name!
I have registered literally hundreds of names (I flip websites) and have had this issue happen just that one time.
I have added another training video (link below) that shows the exact steps I take when I am searching for another great domain name.
I hope that everyone enjoys the training, and I hope that many are able to acquire the domain name of their dreams!
