Nowadays, every successful business has a website.

After you choose a business that you want to pursue, it’s time to create a website.

The first thing you need to do is decide a name for your website and its url, which is also known as a domain name.

Next, you have to see if that domain name is available. You can do so by going to a domain name registrar and get a free domain name.

When you enter the url you want, the registrar will let you know if that domain name is available for you or if it is already taken.

Since there are billions of websites, many domain names are already taken and many people are “fighting” to get those same customers that you are looking for.

Therefore, choosing a great name for your business is very important.

Here are some tips to choosing a great name for your website.

Keep it simple. People have so much going on in their lives and you have so much competition that it is very important to have a domain name that people can easily remember.

There has to be a clear connection between the domain name and the products that you are selling.

If you sell toys, you can have the word “toys” in the domain name. If you sell a custom made product, you can have the name of the item along with the word custom.

For example, if you sell custom plastic bags with people’s personal logos, then you can have a domain name such as “custom shopping bags.”

This way, people know what you are selling bags as soon as they see your name.

Stick to .com rather than .org or .net, as it is more popular and people remember .com easier.

If you are a global company, .com is best. However, if you are doing business just in one country, then choose .uk in the United Kingdom or .ca in Canada.

After choosing your domain name, it is time to choose a web hosting company to build and host your website.
