Finally An Article On How to Really Pick a Domain Name


  1. I can’t imagine one could get any more simplistic on this subject. When I started reading this information I was initially terrified and filled with anxiety but the more I read the more comfortable I became with the information and the terminology used within.

    The anxiety has left and I now feel confident in pursuing and attaining my perfect domain name.
    Thank you!

    • Jacqueline – Thanks for the note. I’m happy to read your comments. Let me know if you need any help as you work on selecting a domain for your niche.

  2. Wowee! Reading this just saved me from strangling my three partners in a new venture. Well, no, it probably saved them from strangling me! Incredibly useful information, well organized and clearly presented. Coming from someone who is good at that, a big compliment.

    • Carol – Thanks for the wonderful compliment. Take care.


  3. Thanks Kenneth.

    As with most when browsing the net, I generally skip through the article or post first and if I see a wall of text I usually leave very quickly. However, this kept me interested. Lots pf pertinent information and tips for avoidance.

    Although I already had my domain name, as someone who is curious and likes to learn I still find myself intrigued with the opinions of others and take from that what I can. Thanks again.

    • Jonah – Thanks for reading. I’m glad that you’re enjoying the blog.


  4. Hi,
    Greetings from Nepal (the Himalayan country with the Mt. Everest). Like most starters, I too am a newbie and haven’t the faintest idea about blogging. But only a week after subscribing to your website, my confidence is building up and I’m getting to know about blogging and how to kick start it. Thank you for that Kenneth.

    Before registering for my blog, I’d really appreciate your enlightening me on some questions that has been worrying me.

    First off, I’d like to make myself clear that as a passionate mountain biker, I intend my blog to be a platform to help mostly foreign mountain biking enthusiasts from all over the world, who wish to come to Nepal to try this adventure sports. I’ll be answering their queries, from how/where to do it, to hiring bikes and finding good itineraries, in fact, literally anything they would like to know to make their adventure tour a success.

    Do you think this a good idea? If yes, can you possibly help me with some of your invaluable tips?


  5. Your post about buying domain name is great. I see that you pointed out that .com is the best, well right but new gTLD’s are not poor as well. People are buying them and they are easy to remember and catchy. New gTLD’s might be not the famous as of now but they are going to be big in future. Dot com domain names are not they easy to get and .net is also. Buying a great domain name with a .com might be costly if you plan to buy it in market. Most domain investors have bought good domain names already so you need to buy from them and they charge heft money for that. You can even buy one whole set of website from flippa and other marketplace, and that might save you time and money.

  6. Great article. This is as good a primer on how to choose a domain name that I’ve seen anywhere. This should be a must-read for anyone purchasing a domain name for a business or blog.

  7. Thank you so much…..this article is prayer answered for me.

  8. The post is somewhat bigger but is filled with good information about getting a good domain name. It’s not always required to have a .com domain name. Many other domain name values can be increased that depends upon always the quality of content and if traffic to your site wants to come back again and again

  9. Well said Anthony. Choosing the right domain name for website is little difficult because your website is often the very first impression on customers. Domain name should be unique and easy to understand. So, think wisely before choosing domain name for your business.

  10. Marvelous, what a blog it is! This website gives useful information to us, keep it

  11. what does it mean if you type in a “dominance”.com idea and you get this as a response:

    You don’t have permission to access / on this server.
    Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80


    • Hi Tara, where did you type that in?

  12. I completely disagree with the part that says trying to brand a new word.. It worked and still works.. Have had success with this and didn’t face any trouble.

    Its not like creating a monster brand, its simply being unique.. The last branded domain I generated got me a whooping $2540 after placing it for sale..

    Either ways, great blog
