2. Make sure you are seen.
The whole of the internet is a huge place and you’re alway going to come up against competition and even companies with similar names and your new competition might ever want to buy your domain so make sure you buy your .com and .co.uk it will make it easier for future customers finding you.
3. Always think “KISS”
Try and think KISS- “Keep it short and sweet”- You will want customers to find your website by people looking for you and your company. Try not to make your domain name too long or hard to spell or misheard. You want it to be something people will remember.
4. .COM is number 1
a domain name ending in .com is the choice you should always go for and if its taken always hunt for .co.uk (both is best). .COM performs best on Google rankings and it will really help your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). You don’t need to use the .com but to own it is a must.
