A domain name can make or break a website. Get it right and people will remember it for good, get it wrong and they will never remember your site's name. Therefore, you should select a domain name that bears direct relevance to the subject matter of your site, your personal name or the name of your company. For example, the web site of 8vias – a well-known ICANN-recognized domain registrar and shared hosting company, is http://8vias.com. This domain is immediately associated with the name of the company and with hosting services in general, making it easy for the company's business partners and customers to discover it online.
Over 50 Top-Level Domain extensions to choose from
But keep in mind that your personal or corporate domain names do not mandatorily have to end with .com, where options are limited. Actually, there is a practically unlimited set of Top-Level Domain extensions to pick from, including .MOBI – for sites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for rich media websites, .NAME and .ME – for personal sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – thought of as .COM alternatives, and practically any country-code domain name that crosses your mind. A United Kingdom-based web site might enjoy bigger popularity if it employs a .CO.UK top-level domain name. However, if your business is in Canada or the States, .CA or .US might be a wiser choice.
