I think, domain name affect the website success. Because if the website name is clarifies the purpose of your website then visitors get attract towards your website. It should be catchy. It depends on the marketing approach too. If you are promoting your website in unique way then name doesn't matter.

Here are some tips here -

1. Make sure you will choose the domain name related to your site. That is if you would like to create the site related to games then from it's name, end-user should get the purpose of the site.

2. Make sure to choose the domain extension carefully, If you are developing the educational site then the extension should be .edu so it will clarify the use of your website.

3. You can use country specific extensions too.

4. Use the top rated keywords while assigning name to your website so it will help you to rank your website in SEO.

5. Domain name should be shrot and sweet, easy to remember.


Domain name popularity depends on factors like visitors, alexa, design, architecture, contents on the website , images and number of links pointing to your website, social site linking. You will need to review the all links connected to your website. You should remove the bad links that is spam links. Internal linking should be proper.

Choosing a domain name that represents your website's essence is of great importance for the further growth of your business. It should be easy to spell and remember and neither too long, nor too short. You may choose a name that includes your brand, or keywords, related to your business niche. Also you should choose carefully the extension if it is an e-commerce website you may opt for the most preferred extension - .com, or you may choose less popular, but very catchy extensions like .gift; . shop; .store; . shopping and other.

Domain names are so important because they make your website unique. A domain name makes your website to stand out and you can avoid unnecessary conflicts with other people who may claim that you you stole their idea. A domain name gives you an idea on what content you can put on your website and it prevents you from going off topic.

Hi there. Good day, for me choosing domain name is very important because it's like choosing name of your store related to what products you will be selling, or like choosing the best slogan for your business on how you will attract your customers to convince them. So better do some research and you will find what's best domain name is. :)

Domain name must be related to the brand. Both have to work together and both should be part of a strategy. O

Choosing a domain name is important because that is going to be your identity to your customers. It will be the first thing that they'll need in order to go to your online site or store. That being said, your domain name is one of the keys for your success.

Domain name is important to a business cause it will give you the oppurtunity to advertise your business to any interested customer. using domain name customer already have an idea on what type of business you have, but using domain name you have too make sure that is related to your business. Domain name give your business an easy access to find so they can see what time is your office hour and what are the things you are selling.

Domain name in an online world makes you unique. You may compare it to a person who has a very common name like Joe. Imagine if you could own the name Joe as your domain name, you will be the only "Joe" in the online world. You may keep it and nobody will be able to use it for as long as you are paying the host who set it up.

Domain actually gives the visitors to your website or online store an idea what services/products you are offering. It is also a way for prospect customers to your site to remember it. Like if you are offering floral arrangements, you go to "TELEFLORA.COM" or per say someone is looking for merchandise with cats in it, they go to "JUSTCATSWORLD.COM". It is somewhat represents the idea of your business or services. Much better if you think about it first and pick something that is cool and up-to-date to get much audience to your online business.

Domain names is the first impresssion your visitors have about your website. It should contain words that link directly to the product you sell.An attractive domain name is will make your website successful and it`s the first step to have lots of visitors. A short, memorable domain name can make the difference between creating a successful Web presence and getting lost in cyberspace. A domain name adds credibility to your small business.

This is a very informative post. As far as I know, this will help your customers get a quick look at what your website is about. This will greatly affect the success of your business. Your domain name will separate you from the other websites and thus, give you the advantage in whatever business you have.

Domain name is one of the most important ingredients in building a website mainly because this will be used to let people find your page. It is also important to remember that choosing a domain name should be in related to the content of your website and it must also be as short as possible in order for people to easily memorize it.

Choosing a domain name is very important. This will affect the reputation of your online store/company. If it's something kiddy or irrelevant to what you are selling, customer's wouldn't even bother looking twice and close the tab. Basically, you will own the domain name and no one could steal that from you but remember to pay your host! :)

How important? That depends on what you do after you have decided on the domain name. It's the content which makes a domain name famous, not the other way round. Sure, plenty of people will tell you that a domain name will make or break your online business. Maybe you should look at some of the famous domain names and see the truth. Do you think the name Google made the search engine famous? Or is it the efficiency of the search engine which made the name Google famous?

Domain names are so important for online businesses because people google names on search engines. If you want to attract more clients in your online business think carefully about your domain names. Domain names are like brands so you better choose what kind of brand are you taking in to make people remember your online business.
