As an easy starting point:
- If you’re making a website for your business, your domain name should match your company name. For example: YourCompanyName.com
- If you’re planning to set up a website for yourself, then YourName.com can be a great option.
For this site (Geckosurfing), I chose Geckosurfing.biz
Domain names usually end with .com, .org, .org.uk, .biz or .co.uk, but in recent months, a huge amount of domain extensions (the end part of the web address, like .com) have come out, ranging from .agency to .pizza.
HINT: Avoid the weird extensions and go with .com, .org.uk, .biz or .org unless they perfectly describe what you have to offer – and even then, see if you can find a more common name.
While .com, .org.uk, .biz, .org and .co.uk are commonly used and easily remembered, the domain extension craze hasn’t really gone mainstream yet – so people may not find you if you use a really different domain extension.
Do some brainstorming to come up with a unique domain name that reflects your future website, business or blog.
