How to find good domain name...

What is a domain name?

A domain is your website’s name on the internet. It’s the address that people type into their web browser to reach your website.

In a domain name, the first part (before the dot sign) is called the domain and the last part (after the dot sign) is called the domain extension. For example, in the domain ""- "amazoniada" is the domain and “.com” is the extension.

When you register a domain name, you need to choose both the domain and extension based on your website type.

Why is your domain name so important?

  • It defines your brand: A good domain name increases awareness of your brand and retains your customers.

  • It adds credibility to your website: A domain is the first thing your visitors will see. A good domain name makes your website look professional.

  • It increases the click-through rate: A good domain name helps to increase the click-through rate (CTR) as well as boost search traffic.

How to choose an SEO-friendly domain name?

1. Use top-level domain extensions

Before purchasing a domain, you need to know which domain extension is right for you or suits your business.

There are over 1,000 domain extensions available in the domain name system and it’s pretty confusing to choose one.

More than 49% of all domain names have the “.com” extension. There are other popular domain extensions available that you can use like “.net”, “.org”, “.edu”, “.info”, etc.

The most used domain extensions are “.com”, “.net”, “.org”, “.edu”.

However, if you are going to start a blog, business or any kind of profitable website, then I highly recommend you go with the .com domain extension.

You may notice when somebody tells a website’s name for the first time, we usually access the website with the .com extension. This is because it’s so popular.

You may wonder if there is any SEO benefit of choosing a .com domain. If you are asking so, then in a domain name, the only thing that matters is the domain, not the extension. These extensions were created to differentiate different kinds of websites.

For example;

.com – .com is used for commercial businesses or any profitable websites. For example,

.net – .net stands for “networking”, which was created for network-related websites, such as,

.edu – This extension is mostly used by education-related websites. For example,

.org – Non-profit organizations mostly use the .org extension, such as

Now, you can understand which type of domain extension suits your site. If you have a website for the purpose of making a profit, then go with the .com domain. The .com extension is so popular; it looks like all the good .com domains are already taken. In this case, you need to come up with new domain names or go with .net or .org.

2. Go for brandable domain names

Have you ever wondered why many popular websites rank always higher than a brand-new site? The answer is they are not just a website, each of the websites is a brand. Search engines like Google use ‘brand signals’ to show articles from high-quality websites.

But what makes a domain name brandable? Well, there are several factors that come into play, for example,

  • A brandable name is unique and has no specific meaning, for example,

  • It’s very simple and easy to remember

  • It’s simple to pronounce

  • It stands out from the competition

For example, the domain “” looks more brandable than the domain “”.

To come up with new names, you can try adding relevant keywords or random suffixes but make sure the new domain sounds like a brand like we discussed before.

3. Keep your domain name short

Try to keep your domain name as short as possible. Short domain names are super easy to pronounce and also remember.

You see that most successful companies have a short name like Google, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, and so on.

According to a study, the most typical domain name length is approximately 12 characters. We recommend you to keep your domain length between 6-14 characters.

This site – “" is exactly 10 characters long.

4. Avoid hyphens and numbers in your domain name

When choosing a domain name for SEO, it’s always better to avoid hyphens and numbers.

Hyphens and numbers make it harder to pronounce.

Let’s take as an example. is a very short domain name and is easy to pronounce. More than that sounds like a brand.

What if there were any hyphens or numbers in the name like “” or “”, of course, the company could not have spread so promptly if that was the case.

So, if you are finding a domain name for your new website, always keep it simple and avoid hyphens and numbers.
