Tips for choosing a domain name:
Establish your brand
Use your domain name to establish your brand
Remember that a domain name is the first step in establishing your brand online. Register a domain name that reflects your company or product name.
For example if your business is called Jane's Bagels you should consider registering JanesBagels.com.
Make it memorable
Make it memorable
A short catchy domain name will be easier for your customers to remember. Try to use only two or three short words and keep it easy to spell and easy to pronounce.
In addition to serving as your brand identifier, JanesBagels.com is also short and easy to remember.
Reflect what you do
Choose a name that reflects what you do
This will help customers find you online. Try using an action phrase that describes your business. These keywords will also help your search engine ranking. Search engines typically give higher ranking to websites which contain descriptive words in their domain name.
For example BagelsToGo.com tells customers and search engines that you provide bagel catering services as well as carry-out services.
Consider registering common misspellings of your domain name and additional extensions to prevent others from copying your success by registering similar names.
For example consider registering JanesBagles.com where the L and the E are reversed.
Don't be afraid to register multiple domain names. It is common practice to register multiple names. You can use Web Forwarding to point your additional names to your primary website.

Your domain name it's how the online world finds you.
A domain name, or Web address, is an address where you can be found online. It's how you'll express yourself through email or your website and it's what customers think of when trying to find you. nsWebAddress™ provides the tools to get online fast.
There's no better time than the present to register a domain name and get online. Securing your domain name is smart and easy. If you're not quite ready to start building a multi-page website, you can publish an Instant Web Page that comes with your nsWebAddress™ and start promoting your company online today. A domain name can also be used to personalize your email address; presenting a more professional image to your customers. Once you're ready to put your business online or establish a personal Web presence, you can build a website (or have one built for you) and publish it for the world to see.
Also, don't forget to protect your personal information when you register a domain. Choosing private domain registration will keep your private contact information out of WHOIS, an online database that makes every domain registrant's contact information available to the public.
Whatever your situation, if there's a particular name that you want, it's good to register it quickly. There's no guarantee that a domain name available today will be available tomorrow. Search today and get online fast.
