6 Characteristics of an effective Domain name - HOSTNETINDIA
By Gopal on Tue Feb 2018 18:30:20

Here are certain Tips for a Successful Domain name:-

1 – Short

While purchasing a domain name from a recognized Registrar, we must choose a domain name with less number of characters because an effective domain name is supposed to be ideally composed of one or two words, three words are rather average, over three is generally a bad idea.
Therefore it is often recommended not to exceed 20 characters.

2 – Easy to remember

You should know that some Internet users use the bookmark features. They then store their favorite websites or blogs and type the url whenever they want to visit. However, if your domain is complex, difficult to remember, spelling mistakes or Typo domain, contains too many special characters or different from the name of your site / blog, you may lose the opportunity to attract the type of visitors.

3 – Appropriate extension

The. Com remains an informed choice. Why? Just because this is the most popular and the one that remains anchored in the head, especially while trying to remember a web address.

If the. Com is not available; there are other choices depending on your type of site or business. For example:
- The .org is especially useful if you are an organization or NGO
- If you want to target a particular group of visitors or you own a local business geographical area, there are extensions provided for this purpose, including the re ca fr (France) (Canada) , etc.

- If you get into the WebTB, consider the extension .tv

4 – Descriptive

Note that many visitors will come to your site via search engines. Your domain name must be capable to attract attention and be relevant to the content of your site / blog.
If your domain name contains keywords, than that would be a bonus which can guide your visitors easily. For example, if I type “travel california” in my search, I can come across and, I’ll tend to click the first choice.
Keywords can also boost your site / blog for SEO.

5-  brandable

A brandable domain will have a nice pronunciation, an interesting combination of letters or simply an appealing visual effect. Sometimes they will not be descriptive, but they can be equally efficient.

Brandable domains will make your visitors associate the name with your website and its content. (Notice that brandable domains can be descriptive at the same time, but that is not always the case.)

Example: is one of the most popular Dedicated server on the Internet. The domain is not descriptive at all, but the brand is so strong that require Person immediately recognize it across the web.


6 - easy to spell

The last thing you want is visitors misspelling your domain and ending up somewhere else.

Avoid unusual foreign words, words that have complex pronunciation, strange combinations of letters and anything else that might cause someone to misspell your address.
