A domain name adds a unique credibility and professionalism to your business. If you publish your site through an ISP or a free Web hosting site, you’ll end up with a URL such as “www.yourISP.com/-yourbusiness”. This generic address, although functional, does not inspire confidence in a customer like a “www.yourcompany.com” domain name does.
And since many people still don’t fully trust the Internet and e-commerce, you’ll want to do what you can to prove that your small business deserves their money. If you’re not willing to pay the money to register an appropriate domain name, why would consumers think you’d put any effort into creating valuable products or services? (www.allbusiness.com)
Tips for Selecting Your Domain Name:
- Try your company name first
- Consider search terms that potential clients may look up
- Be unique, but not too clever
- If dot-com isn’t available, try dot-net or dot-biz
- Make it easy to type
- Make it easy to remember
- Keep it short and sweet
