domain name game

 

"a rose by any other name..."

Might be mighty hard for your customers to find!

Your name is your identity but when it comes to your domain name, odds are the name you want is already long gone.  However, there are still plenty of choices for meaningful domain names available for your online identity.   Follow these tips:
  • If yourname.com is still available, grab it now!  Despite all the new extensions (yourname.info, yourname.biz, yourname.us), a .com extension is prime real estate! 
  • If yourname.com is already taken, think of ways you can change it slightly (ex:  firstrealty, 1strealty, erafirstrealty, floridafirstrealty, etc. - all of which are taken by the way)  
  • Stick with .com extension - your clients will!  If you can afford it now, you can also register yourname.net and any of the other extensions but make your main identity .com
  • Avoid names that may be difficult for people to remember or spell - they may get lost trying to find you or a typo can bring them to someone else's web site.
A handy site for checking the availability of domain names and variations is Domain Fellow.   It even includes a domain name generator that uses keywords supplied by you.  Should you find a domain name you like, we do not recommend that you register or purchase it from that site as, depending upon who you select to host your site, free domain name registration may be included in with a hosting package.   

Remember also, once you have a domain name, your domain e-mail address will never change, even if you change your ISP (internet service provider).  You can have multiple domain email accounts (ex: dick@yourname.com, jane@yourname.com, spot@yourname.com, sales@yourname.com, etc.) and you can retrieve or have mail forwarded from your domain email accounts just as easily as you do from your ISP account, perhaps easier.
