Naming a company, product, or service is difficult. The right name can make or break your brand before it even gets off the ground. In this article we'll cover how to choose the best domain names for your business and some tips on finding a good name that will resonate with customers.
Your first instinct may be to go with a .com, but there's no reason you can't buy a domain name that reflects your city or state. Here
While your friends and family might not understand the significance behind these domain names, businesses within your local area will. You may even be able to sell domains like this for hundreds of dollars on sites like Flippa (I've bought and sold city name domains in the past). You can also check out NameBio.com for more information about domain names registered on the web.
How to find a good name for your business
So how do you go about finding a good brand name? These are some of our tips:
1. Start with an idea and brainstorm words that match this idea (you might have to try a few of these!)
2. Make a list of potential names based on your brainstorming sessions
3. Pick out the ones you like the most and run it by friends, family or coworkers (or even strangers who match your target market) to see which one they respond well to
4. Experiment with buying the domain name and plugging your idea into a blog or other pages
5. Research social media profiles that have the same name to see if it's available (if not, you may want to reconsider that name) 6. Finally, pick one you think works best for your business venture and make it official!
Here are some examples of company names in action:
Space Jam's Facebook page The online gaming world is full of brand names that try to be catchy but come off as awkward or foreign. If you're going for something a little more out there than traditional .com domains, check out this article by Tuts+ about coming up with unique brand names .
How to buy a domain name
There are two ways you can get your hands on a great domain name: buying them outright or purchasing them with a service like Squarespace.com. Here's how both methods work: If you want to buy the website use this tool from GoDaddy.com to see if it's available. Make sure you're typing in the exact URL of what you're looking for, otherwise it won't work properly . If it works but another person is currently hosting their site through that address, then they should be able to transfer the site into your preferred web host (instructions will usually be provided by the host). If the domain isn't owned already, then simply contact the owner and start negotiating. If
the owners are asking for a higher price than you're willing to pay, try adding "make an offer" or something similar to that effect and see if they'll budge. You can also check out sites like Flippa.com (I've bought and sold city name domains in the past). If you want to buy it through Squarespace, then here's what you do:
Step 1 : Register a domain through https://www.squarespace.com/ Sign up with your e-mail address and use a password that's easy to remember.
Step 2 : Use their domain search tool on their homepage After entering your chosen website address into the search box, click "Search".
Step 3 : Purchase the domain If you like what you see, then click on the "Buy" button. You'll have to sign in using your e-mail address and password (from step 1) before buying the domain. If it has expired or is available for transfer, then Squarespace will take care of everything. Once purchased, they will let you know if there are any extra fees related to hosting or a new web host altogether. That's all there is to it! Happy branding!
