When starting a blog, arguably the most important decision you have to make is which domain you register. “Buying a domain name” should be your top priority because once you purchase/register it, then you can’t edit it. Not only will it be the name that people remember your website for, but it will also be an important part of branding the blog for recurring traffic. The domain you pick will be the first thing visitors will notice about your site, so you need to make it good to entice your visitors into reading the content on your blog.

Buying A Domain Name? Things (Keys) You Should Remember:

There are many factors that you should consider before buying a domain, but there are three ‘golden’ rules that you should strive to follow if you want the best possible name for your blog.

Golden Key Rules For Buying A Domain Name

1st Rule

The first of the golden rules is to make the domain relevant to the content on your website. The amount of people who buy domains unrelated to their niche is astounding, so by incorporating keywords into your domain, you have already given yourself an advantage over the other websites in your niche. As well as that, it lets the reader know what kind of site they’re visiting before they’ve even clicked the link. We registered MoviesDrop.com for Movies, FoodGravy.com for Food and likewise. So you can make sure the domain has the core keyword about your blog’s niche.

2nd Rule

Another rule is to make the domain as short as possible. Recurring traffic is a very important part of Blogging, so you need the domain to be as easy to remember as possible. Because of that point, the shorter the domain, the better. As a rule of thumb, try to never purchase a domain that has more than three words in it. If you can find a one-word domain you should always try and purchase it for two reasons. Firstly, it will be easy to remember for your visitors, and secondly, it will also add a lot of value to your blog, should you choose to sell/flip it.

3rd Rule

The third and final rule is to choose the domain extension wisely. There are many different extensions you can buy, but the advice that all domainers will give is to try and make the extension relevant to the website. For example, if the website is about an organization, then the ‘.org’ extension is the best, but if it’s just a general website then ‘.com’ would be best. Similarly, if your blog or website is aimed at a particular country, it is always advised to register the domain with the country’s extension. We picked Slashsquare.org for our company website and HellBoundBloggers.com for our blog.
