7 bonus tips on choosing the perfect domain name for your blog

BONUS TIP #1 – Use an easy add-on

Sometimes using a single word with your primary keyword can be challenging, especially when it’s a predictable combination and the domain is already taken.

So, what can we do about this?

Well by using an ‘easy add-on’ you can find that free domain whilst still keeping those two words you’ve grown fond of.

For example, let’s say from category 1 you’ve chosen ‘chateau’ and your keyword is ‘musical’, combined it’s ‘Musical Chateau’. Just by using an add-on you can come up with more variations, such as:

  • Your Musical Chateau
  • My Musical Chateau
  • E-Musical Chateau

Here are some examples of easy add-ons which can be applied to any niche:

BONUS TIP #2 – Use a foreign language as an add-on

So your heart is set on ‘The Musical Monkey,’ it’s quirky and you’ve got an idea for a logo (I bet it includes a monkey…), but sadly it’s taken.

Don’t worry, we can work around this.

You can add a unique twist to your domain name by translating one of your words into another language. This gives you a lot more options now.

‘The’ could now become les, das, los, an, quod, det, ka etc.

The most common languages to translate to are: Latin, French, Spain and Italian.

BONUS TIP #3 – Use multiple categories

I did this exact method for my website ‘Your Creative Aura.

I wanted my site to be about musical creativity, and my name to focus on finding that creative part of yourself you didn’t know you had.

Choosing category 11 (blog persona) I thought ‘aura’ felt like a good fit, and soon Creative Aura came about, but unfortunately it was taken.

So I chose an easy add-on and ta-da ‘Your Creative Aura’ was born. I chose ‘your’ because the website revolves around helping you find your creativity, the focus is the audience.

BONUS TIP #4 – Keep your domain name short

Want to know what the longest genuine URL is?

Here it is:

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.co.uk

And yes it is a real domain.

Unless you’re some sort of Wizard or live in this Welsh village, you most likely won’t remember this.

So keep your domain name simple.

The best domain name length to have is between 8-16 characters. This domain, Profit Blitz has 11 characters, perfect!

BONUS TIP #5 – Make sure your domain name can be understood and is readable

Now I guess this tip is sort of common sense, but some websites still use some words which are confusing to spell.

A great example is Flickr.

Talk to anyone about this website and 99% will go ahead and search for ‘flicker’ or type in ‘flicker.com’ and Flickr noticed this too. So they brought flicker.com and redirected it to solve this issue.

Also, be careful with slang or abbreviations for words, such as ‘u’ instead of ‘you.’ This can make it harder for people to find you on the internet.

Numbers can cause issues, as people won’t know whether you mean ‘5’ or ‘five.’ The same goes for hyphens. Separating each word with a hyphen is easy to remember, however randomly inserting them such as ‘I-wish-Icouldfly-superhigh.com’ can be confusing to remember.

BONUS TIP #6 – Use a keyword pivotal to your niche/brand

If you want to build a website for your advertising agency, calling it ‘A Bunch Of Bananas’ will not make any sense to your potential customers. However, for a website on healthy eating this name will be more applicable.

ProfitBlitz focuses on helping people build profitable websites, therefore the primary keyword is ‘profit,’ which was then incorporated into the domain name ‘ProfitBlitz.’

BONUS TIP #7 – Choose the most appropriate domain extension

Over 100,000 domains are being registered everyday!

It is now becoming increasingly difficult to get a short, memorable domain ending with .com that hasn’t already been taken.

Luckily, gone are the days where we just used .com, now we have many domain extensions, each which meet certain business needs.

Here are alternative domain extensions to .com which might be more suitable:

  • .co – commonly used for companies, commercial or community sites.
  • .info – focuses mainly on informational sites.
  • .net – an abbreviation for ‘network’ and is used for technical based information.
  • .org – sites that are non-commercial and nonprofit organizations.
  • .biz – commercial or business sites such as e-commerce sites.
  • .me – used mainly for blogs, journals and personal sites.

That said, always get a .com if you can!

BONUS TIP #8 – Use Portmanteau

Portmanteau is simply the combining of two words to make a new word. This is a great technique because the domain name probably won’t be taken and the end result is a memorable brand name.

To get started, we take two words that say what our brand is about. And type them into a word combiner to see what we get.

Here’s an example:

If you’re starting a personal development blog, you may find words like purpose and focus are words that resonate with your brand. Add those words to the word combiner and you’ll get a bunch of words, including Purcus, which is pretty catchy, right?

Try it for yourself and see what you come up with – I’m sure you’ll come up with a few cool website names.

Your next step…

Well there you have it, over 1,000 words to help you find that perfect domain name for your new website.

Once you’ve got a list of potential domain names for your website, head over to Namecheap to check availability, then check which extensions you’d like to purchase.

You’ll find that ‘.com’ are universally the most popular, but depending on the type of website you’re creating you might find an alternative extension better.

All that’s left to do is purchase your domain once you’ve found the perfect website name and start building it!
