A domain name is your address on the internet. A catchy domain name will help people find your website and remember your brand. A domain name is also a great way of branding your personalised email accounts (e.g.: Having a good, memorable domain will also help people find you on Google.
Registering a domain is the first step in establishing an online identity for you or your business. Having a good domain name allows you to create a customised website and have professional-looking email addresses.
Keep your domain name as short and as memorable as possible. You should also avoid using hyphens. Try think of an acronym if you have a long business name and make sure you also register your full business name to protect your brand. Keeping things as simple as possible makes sure that people will remember you.
