Default Tips for Chossing Domain names

Tip 1
First of all, you need to make sure that the name is simple and can be simply remembered by everyone. Do not pick a name like "electronegativity" because it's a long word and almost no one will understand the meaning of the word and thus, it will be difficult to remembers. If a name is difficult to remember, then not many people are going to come to the site.

Tip 2
Secondly, the name should most likely be a word. Don't pick the abbreviations as your name such as bkb or smk. If your site or name is not famous then you should never pick the abbreviations. MSN can have it because it is really famous. Abbreviations are hard to memorize unless the users know the original name.

Tip 3
Try to pick a unique name. Do not make it completely unfamiliar or new but try to be creative with good interesting names that will grab quick attention.

Nice post. And I wanted to say something more to this thread.

Tip 4: Don't try to have a domain with '-'(hyphen) it is most likely will not look as good as odinary domain. And also having a numerical domain (a number in between) may not be much attractive.

Tip 5: Not only that the domain should be simple, but also try to keep your domain as small as possible. It would surely help for all to remember your website.

Tip 6: TLD's are extremely important for a website. Give first preference to the best '.com' TLD (TLD=Top Level Domain) If you don't have that TLD available, try something else. But before you try some other TLD, think if you can have the same .com and some other domain. Because, .com TLD gets registered easily than any other TLD and .com is also cheap than many other TLDs. If your website is geographically targeted website, then choose your country TLD. That is better.

Tip7 : When you buy a domain, also grab anyother domain that would jsut sound like this domain, I mean like if you are buying lover.com - Let you buy lovers.com too. You may miss and others may get some traffic because of this.

(Some one please thank me :P I have never got a thanks )
