    Hey Nikos,

    I get that creativity and shortness are key when choosing a domain name. The important thing is that people remember it, right?

    But I’m really struggling right now to name my site and buy the matching domain, because I’m not sure if it’s better to pick up a brandable domain or make it keyword rich.

    Is it more important to have a memorable name or to have better chances to rank it for a certain keywords within your specific niche?

    What would you go for? Brand or keyword? Or maybe a mix of both despite it would make it longer?

    Thanks for the advice!

      Hello Israel, 

      The best thing is a mix of both like you said but that doesn’t necessarily means your domain name must have many characters. 

      But if that is not possible i would choose a brandable name. Your brand name is far more important than any keywords.

    Reading through your great content, I just realized that I didn’t make the best choice for my domain name but not the worst either. Truth is I spent only two hours finding my domain name but at least I meet half of the criteria you mentioned in your post. Next time, I will be more careful when choosing domain names.

    I’ve never thought that I could buy all the top domains to avoid a similar website name.  I’ve actually seen other competing sites with almost similar domains, and sadly some are fakes of the original sites.

    I’ve also never looked at the double letters spelling in a domain name. Now that I think about it, I understand that it might pose a problem in terms of typos.

    Thanks for these wonderful tips.

    Excellent post you have here. I must admit I did encounter a lot of difficulty when choosing my domain name. I tried so many names to which all of them have been registered before. So, I had to go back to figure something out. Choosing a domain name is the first phase of building wealth online and if woefully done, has already mar the progress of the business.

    I still see some people creating hyphenated domain names and I really wonder why they do that. Maybe they are not all that familiar with how to choose a domain name so I would not really blame them but it is something they can really come to regret in the future.

    Some people also find it difficult in coming up with a domain name because they decide to go for a sought of niche domain name.

    While this is a good idea I think it can be much better to go for a more generic name even though they are running a niche website as it can be much easier to branch out in the future if they decide to.

    Woiw, so much information packed into one article. I’m also a big fan of being creative while staying away from hyphens and letters. I believe that less is more, so something easy to remember but catchy is going to be your best choice rather than trying to figure one out for a few days. You’ve actually inspired me to start a new website with a new domain name. Thanks a bunch!

    Hi, Thanks for your useful post. At a first glance, choosing a right domain name is an easy task . For my first domain name,it took me about half a day to purchase it.  My favorite one had already been taken by some one else. I then ended up choosing a different one. To be honest,I am not happy about that; but it’s not so bad. If I had seen a good article like this informative post before,I would have chosen a better brandable domain name. I bookmark this page and will definitely refer to other people to make a right decision.
    Again, Thank you
