TOP TIPS FOR CHOOSING A DOMAIN NAME (www.mywebsite.com)
Keep it Simple- Choose a name that is Simple and Matches the Name of your Business to promote traffic flow to your website. SmithPlumbing.com   is a good example. If your name is already taken, you can add your city name to the end. SmithPlumbingPortland.com is an example of a good domain   name for Smith Plumbing of Portland, Oregon.
Length is Okay- Domain names can be Up to 67 Characters Long making it easy to fit your business name into the URL, but make sure it also fits on   your business card.
• Make it Memorable so people won't have to look it up or write it down.
Easy to Spell- You also want it to be easy to spell to insure maximum visitor potential. We also recommend purchasing any common misspellings to your domain name.

Get the Singular and the Plural of the domain so that no one can get too close to your domain name.

Whew! You've made it through day one and now you're ready to proceed. It only gets easier from here.
