Your first step into the Internet world and in starting your online empire is choosing your domain name, which will be the first thing to be seen by external visitors or your customers. That is why you need to pay more attention to the domain name you will choose. Most of us love to name their companies or brands with something the like or an idea they have in mind, like naming it with their family name or their wife’s name and sometimes things they believe.

Wait a minute; you might need to give it another thought when it comes to registering your domain name. You will need to decide your content – subject- of your website and your targeted visitors before selecting your domain name. Buy only “.com” and don’t trouble yourself with the others. Although the domain name players have gone to some trouble to publicize and market to us about the availability of other extensions such as .org, .net, .us and others…there is still no real reason to buy anything but “.com.”

Double check your domain names for odd or unintentional meanings. This one is a bit mixed, because if your domain name turns out to be something quite funny, it might be just that much more memorable and bring you free traffic. But you may not want to be remembered in that way, and the traffic that results could be a detriment to you. (The wrong target market just clogs up your system, uses bandwidth, and creates customer service inquiries you don’t want.) Your domain name would play an important role in your internet marketing process as most of the search engines prefer to see your website keywords reflected in your domain to give you a higher rank for those keywords.

At the end we better highlight some of the available domain name extensions, the most common domain names end with .com, .net, etc. Country specific domain names will end with for commercial domain names from Australia, commercial domain names from United Kingdom, for commercial domain names from in Japan, etc. For organizations, domain names will end with .org or be country specific- for organization in Australia, for organization in united kingdom, etc.

And you should remember that your domain name is how your website is found on the internet by your potential customers. It is your unique identifier and two organizations can not have the same domain name. Your domain name is not really purchased or bought; it is actually leased for a year to 10 years.
