Tips To Choosing A Domain Name
1. Do not use a free domain name
The first thing is not to use a free domain.
Many bloggers register their blog to a free domain because they do not have the money to buy a paid domain. There is some Top Free Domain such example. TK, GA, ML, etc.
If you want to start a blog then don’t use any free domain.because
- Free Domain is not entirely free, usually just free the first year or no hidden requirements
- One time my friend lose access to domain without notice
- Free domains are often used by blogs spam. Someday to get banned by Google
- Ugly, not professional, not cool
2. Forget EMD, select a domain brandable.
EMD or stands for the Exact-Match Domains is a domain that uses keywords and keyword targeted to get the first page in search engines.
Examples of example you are targeting a keyword ” How to create a blog ” and then you use these keywords as you like EMD Domain ” www.how-create-blog.net “Brandable domain is better than EMD, It is easy to find on the search engine.
3. Do not use a trademark in your domain name
This one usually is often overlooked by when registering a domain name.Though using the trademarks or registered trademarks of others in the domain name can be a risky blog.
For example, my friend makes a blog with domain name mynewgoogle.com, It is not possible later Google will contact him to demand fines 500 million for using their trademark without permission.
4. Select the extension.COM,NET or. Co TLD
The extension is a suffix, such as COM or.NET, at the end of a Web address. It has a specific purpose, so be sure to choose one that works for your business. COM is far more popular, but here are a few other top extensions and are often used:
- .co: company, commerce, and community sites
- .info: information site
- .net: Technical, infrastructure site Internet
- .org: Non-commercial and non-profit
- .me: blog, resume or personal websites
5. Create a domain name as unique as possible
Try to create a domain name as unique as possible, do not imitate an existing domain name. For example, your blog talks about technology, then try not to use the word ” Techno ” in the domain name.
Because as far as I have seen are very many tech blogs that use the word ” Techno ” in the domain name.I think it is too market.
6. Ensure easily typed, remember and pronounce
There are millions of domain names registered, select the domain name must also be easily typed, remember and pronounce. Once you find a name for the domain, share with close friends to make sure it sounds interesting and it makes sense for others.

- Try not to use numbers in your domain just as myblog123.com
- Also, avoid using hyphens in domain names as well as my-blog.com
- Avoid using difficult words to spell on a domain such as searchoptimization.com
- Do not use excessive words as with a length of 4 words
7. Do not use the expired domain
Expired domain, I mean those domains already used by others or the domain is already expired and It can be registered again.

Besides not least also the expired domain that has been banned by the search engine Google, or even banned Google AdSense, which means that uses the domain of your blog is not going to appear in search engines and also can not be monetized with Google AdSense.
