Bob Parsons Top 10 Tips to Picking a Domain Name

11.26.08 | Comment?

  1. Take the time to spell check any domain name you select
  2. Purchase the domain first, then start making plans around it – not the other way round.
  3. Avoid deliberately choosing a mis-spelled domain name
  4. Avoid picking a .info or .us if the .com is already taken
  5. Make sure it won’t be misunderstood
  6. Avoid trademark issues
  7. Make sure the domain is relevant or unique
  8. Avoid numbers and hyphens (not sure about this one)
  9. Make sure your domain name is easy to spell
  10. Keep it short
