The importance of a good domain name
It is quite simple, really. The stronger your domain name, the better you or your organization can be found online.
But what makes a domain name 'good'? Here are a few handy tips:
1 Simplicity is a virtue
And that has never been as true as when it comes to your domain name. Keep it legible, simple and recognizable. Provide a clear name that is easy to remember and without any confusion about the spelling. Go out for an evening with friends and try first hand to see how easy it is to remember your name. Will they remember it the next morning?
Pro-tip: don't use zeros in your domain name, they look too much like the letter 'O'.

2 Also think about new extensions
These generic, non country-based extensions provide a lot of new possibilities. You can use them as an alternative when your name is no longer available under .com, .be, .nl,... Or you can use them to show your main activity in a playful manner. Think for instance of a hosting company with a .hosting name or a pizzeria with a .pizza name.
A nice extra? Google considers websites with a name under such a new extension as more relevant, which makes them appear higher in the search results.
3 Think of your target audience
Have you decided which domain name it will be? Great! Now it is important to think about your target audience. Our experience has shown us that people are very chauvinistic when it comes to domain names. Belgians choose .be, French people expect .fr and Dutch people search for .nl. In other words: when choosing your extension, bear in mind the country and the market where you want to register.
4 Don't forget the exotic extensions...
There are many reasons for choosing exotic extensions. We already mentioned that people are chauvinistic when it comes to domain names. If you, as a European company, want to focus on the Asian market, then these exotic extensions can certainly come in handy. Or maybe you have registered a trademark and you want to protect it (worldwide) online? No problem: we will go to bat for you.
