Tips for registering your domain nameDomain names are important for your presence and image online. There are some general considerations to make when creating a domain name. Most often domain names may be the business name or a combination of the business name and service, such as BusinessNameLawFirm.com or PracticeNameCardiology.com. Sometimes this makes sense other times it may be a choice made simply because the domain name you wanted was no longer available.
If you are starting an online business it is best to try and come up with a relevant domain name that is short, easy to remember and not likely to be misspelled. Simple 2 or 3 syllable words are very effective.
Domain Names for Local Business
It may sometimes be a good idea to include the region your business operates out of as it will help (just a bit for SEO) but also that folks in the area, once they hear of it are less likely to forget it than someone from out of town. With regard to SEO there is little impact if there is much competition for the same keywords in the same area, however if there is less competition in the area you site may rank well simply by default as many web users will type in both the service and the area for certain instances, such as taxi in my town or plumber in this town.
Using Dashes and Capital Letters in Domain Names
Dashes should be avoided as web users may neglect to type them in. Often times a domain name with dashes is registered because the desired domain name is not available. You may end up sending some traffic to competitors if you register with dashes. It would be best to come up with a catchy domain name rather than use one with dashes.
Capital letters are used in domain names just to make it easier for folks to read the names. There are no actual capital letters in domain names, even if you put them in your domain name will default back to lowercase. It is however a good idea to advertise your domain name with capital letters, but that's it. All pages within your website will be case sensitive, meaning that if your about us page is actually AboutUs.html and someone types in (though not likely) yoursite.com/aboutus.html - they will end up trying to load a page that does not exist.
