blog background image

The choice of the name of your blog, along with your domain name is a main key decision in the process of creating a blog, as hit or will not have a profound impact on your blog. It is a process that has a lot of “art” and which I will now summarize the most important keys, but it deserves at least a post dedicated as I recommend you further down.

How to Choose a Domain?

    1. Although it is obvious, remember that the name of your blog and the name of your domain are closely related. If they cannot be identical attempts, at least that differences are the minimum possible.
    2. If you’re serious, having your own domain is not optional. The cost is ridiculous (less than 12 $ / year on sites such as, for example, TosHost, GoDaddy ) and, instead, provides very important benefits, among others, is easier to remember, will convey one more professional image and you have Address of personalized email.
    3. In the case of choosing a blog hosting for own, some providers as our main recommendation www.yoursite.com/or your affiliate site already include a free domain in the price of hosting.

  1. Do not rush to choose these names. Being an important decision as it is, it should meditate well because once you put everything in place under that name and have spent time, is not easy to change your mind.
  2. A problem that is likely you encounter is the difficulty of making that decision. Especially if you already have clear the concept and content of your blog, but do not just give the name (very typical situation), you will feel breaking and perhaps even somewhat frustrated.

DomainsBot is a simple, fast, and powerful tool to find domains. You can enter words and the tool generates combinations, even with synonyms, while check availability.

Though you spend a month or more without launching the blog to the public, absolutely nothing happens, it will be a time well spent if you’re doing the work mentioned.

Strategies to Choose Your Domain Name

To find that perfect domain name, there are basically three different approaches:

Personal name:

In my case, one example might be yoursite.com. This approach fits, especially in blogs where the main objective is to strengthen the personal brand of the author around a professional activity. It is an approach that is doing very well in activities where the person is the main protagonist as consulting services or activities lecturer.

Brand Name:

This is the case of (yourdomain.com). Here it has opted more for the brand, first because it is more sought the “branding” of the site, create a brand and not link the site to both a particular person and, second, because while two we started this blog, makes incoherent direct access to a unique personal brand linkage. This does not mean that the blog does not serve to develop a personal brand of both, but in this case does not fit the site name will linked to only one of the two.

Niche Name:

This is a very “SEO approach ” that attempts to exploit the weight of keywords in a domain. It may be perfectly compatible with a brand. Normal niche sites names are domain aggressive, very SEO oriented, and not very suitable as brand names, names like ” yourdomain.com “, “buzzfeed.com” or “gadgetngears.com”

As for the type of domain, it is still advisable to get a .com domain, its image, and because it seems it is still advantageous to SEO level, although not as much as in the past.

In any case, you should know that SEO topics to be beyond the basic principles (such as the issue of weight you have keywords in a domain) are very elusive since these issues are constantly changing as Google updated its algorithm.

If a name is not available in your .com version, it is not recommended to buy another domain extension (.net, .org, etc.). And if your site is very focused on a specific geographic area, you can raise the domain using the corresponding country (.uk for United Kingdom, .de for Germany, etc.).

If it is not easy to find a name, the fact that many domain names have already been registered complicates things even further. But thankfully, there are tools like DomainsBot to try very fast with many combinations which will help a lot to find those whose names are still available and served.

Suggestions from TOSHOST 

  • Extention: Like as .com .net . org .me etc. 
  • Clear and Meaning full: Above we mention thaw why you need a meaningful domain so keep in mind this topic. 
  • Short Domain Name: It's the identity of your website. Try to keep short your domain to rememberable for all. 
  • Keyword: Use Keyword in your Domain Name. It will give you extra benefits. 
  • Copyright: Do not buy any brand same name domain. It will be herm you SEO and also face copyright notice. 
  • Unique: Try to buy your unique Domain name. It's best for SEO and brand reputation. 

With the above guidelines, you already have a summary of the keys to choosing the best domain name for your business or blog.
