I find that a domain name is key to a successful internet
business. I remember the very first time that I started my
internet business. I had just registered my domain name and
had my website pointing to my domain. This is the
equivalent in a conventional business to opening a shop or
office and having a welcome party.
Metaphorically your domain name represents your keys to a
lifestyle of freedom. The internet is associated with
working from home and no commuting to an office. Being able
to work whenever you want as your website is open 24 hours
for business you need to just check in once a day to answer
support emails and make sure that your website is
Now getting to the serious side of a domain name. It is
critical for your business to succeed. Think about all the
very popular websites like Google, Digg, YouTube and Yahoo
they all have short catchy names that kind of representative
their logo or internet identity. Would you visit Google
frequently if you had to type in a long name that was not
memorable. I am sure that this demonstrates the impact of
choosing a good domain name has on your business.
So let us look at the process of choosing a good name. When
you choose one make sure that it represents your business.
If you are running a used Chevrolet dealer then you can
choose one like Chevrolet Cars. The name can have a hyphen
or just the two words combined together. I am sure that you
get the idea.
Once you are ready choose a well known registrar and check
if the name is available. Once you have confirmed this
complete the registration process and payment. In most
cases the process will complete before 24 hours is up.
