Making The most Out of Your Domain Name

As Sky Host offers a free domain with its web hosting package, it should come as no surprise that we want to provide you the best services we can.

There are some of the ways to help you choose a fantastic domain name.

Plan Your Domain Name

Before you pick your domain name, there are a few factors that should be taken into consideration. These considerations are based on your niche, target audience and brand.

The good news is that you can pick almost anything related to your idea. The bad news is that so can anyone else and as such picking a short unique domain can be quite difficult.

 

Let’s look for the answers of some questions

  • What type of website are you planning to host and what type of content will it contain?
  • What are the niche market and audience?
  • How are you going to find your niche market and target audience and why?
  • Have you done your market research and found SEO friendly keywords?
  • Can you use your SEO keywords in the URL?
  • Plan for the long run, is this a niche that is developing and can you grab a domain related to its development?

View other variations of the domain and see if there’s any similar competition using those words. Although this sounds like a lot for researching a domain, it’s worth it.

You are going to invest your time and effort into a possible brand and project which needs to be short, punchy and informative; but at the same time not generic.

Generic domain names can cause your brand to struggle under high SEO competition. Look at some of the major brands out there - Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and some others as well. They are all using unique brand names.

Guidelines for Choosing your Domain Name

Stick with a simplistic, remember able, and easy to spell domain name with great extensions such as .ae, .com, .net or .org. Sky Host offers a free .com domain with its most of the hosting packages.

Make it sure that your chosen domain is easy to spell and it is not ambiguous. For example, most of the general public is not able to distinguish between principal and principle correctly.

Do not ever try to use other brand names in your domain. In case that you are not sure that your domain name is easy to access, ask your friends to suggest you some unique and awesome names and how they would spell or find it.

Create an Awesome Website

As you have pre-planned your niche, target audience, branding, and SEO friendly information, creating your site content should be very easy. Sky Host offers a wide range of supportive tools with Dubai hosting that can help you a lot with this. It also includes Installatron that would help you to easily install one of many platforms like WordPress, Magento, Joomla, and many others.

You do not need to invest lots of money into a website to make it successful. With a bit of research and support, you can build one that is just right.
