You should not dabble in something you know little about; I had a friend back in college who told me that ‘a little knowledge is dangerous.’ When it comes to domain name registration, you can’t do much on your own, so you need to see to it that you have all the information you need about it first. Then, you need to let the domain registration service do their thing in their own way. Just make certain that they are an outfit you can totally trust.
What is available on the internet already? I ask this concerning the domain name you have in mind for your website. If you don’t have an answer to that question, you are not ready to have it registered. I suggest you go back to internet school. You see, it’s important to ensure that the domain name you are interested in is not already registered. You should first search for it before going ahead.
Some domain registration services are not actually out to make a mess for you, but somehow they end up doing just that. Well, this is not a sentiment issue; find you a service that will do your domain name registration right, and save yourself the headaches. It’s always a good idea to register your domain name with those good registrars that are recognized and recommended by the many Internet Marketers out there.
A lot of brainstorming is important when thinking of registering your domain name. You have to think of a lot of ideas that can help you select the right domain name. Thankfully there are now lots of good domain name tools that can help you come up with the right domain name, but it does take some time and effort and brainstorming, but it’s worth it. So, I’d say you shouldn’t register just about any domain name but the best one for your business or company.
You cannot have two websites online with the same name. As there are no two humans with the exact same DNA, not even twins. When it comes to domain name registration, the domains of the websites have to be distinct from each other. So yeah, you have some work on your hands. If the first one you had in mind is taken, you have to get right back at it.
