Whether you are hosting a website or a Webapp and want to access it quickly, you’ll have to use a domain name. A domain name makes it easy for you and users to find your website. Having a Domain Name that is easy to remember dramatically impacts the success of a project.

For example, hahilkys.com is not easily recognized, even though it could be your pseudonym. Choose something like your name, a brandable name, or a frequent word such as Primates.

A lot of people don’t think before buying a Domain Name, and they take the first thing that comes out of their minds. Be careful, it will represent your brand for a long time.

How to choose a Domain Name:

  • Easily remembered
  • 4 - 12 characters
  • Brandable name. Avoid names like bestgamingwebsite.com
  • Common names or a name that can be typed when hearing it for the first time without mistakes.
10 Tips on How to choose a domain name for your business
Choosing a domain name is not an easy task. This requires a lot of thought and consideration. Your domain name is your identity on the web.

Step 1: Buy the domain

Buy your domain at hover.com. Why there? Because they have one of the best customer support in the industry. I’ve been using it for a long time and have not had any issues.


Step 2: Point the domain to your server

Once you’ve bought your domain, you need to point it at your server using two. A parameter for @ (the whole domain) and WWW (for people who like to type WWW when going to a website).

The propagation on the web of your new Domain Name can take some time. You can check the changes on dnschecker.org. It should take a couple of minutes to a maximum of one hour. In some cases, the propagation of the DNS can take up to 72 hours.

Then you are all set up ! Good luck with your project.
