8 Major Factors To Consider When Purchasing A Domain Name
Eight Major Factors To Consider When Purchasing A Domain Name For Your Blog or Website

A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet.

These are the things to consider before buying a domain name

1. Go for a Top level domain name
Make sure the domain name you are buying is a top level one e.g. .com .ng .org e.t.c.
Just make sure it is very easy for your users to remember.

2. Avoid buying a contradicting domain name
For example, your website niche is on sports, you are now in need of a domain name and you buy extension, SO CONTRADICTING!!!
Always know that your guests and members will be the one looking for admission or other sort of education aspirants and they will bounce back when they see your
Posts mainly on sports.

3. Check if the domain is not existing
The perfect way to do this is to go to any domain registrar website and type the domain name, to know if it had been choosen or not, don't rely on that only, type
the url on search engines too and see if it already existed before you totally conclude.

Some webmasters are scammers, they will close their website for a while and when it had been sold to you, they retrieve it back again
when you gain much traffic.

4. Avoid too long domain name
For example, you want to buy a domain name for a website with music niche and you name it:
That is wrong, go for a domain name that will be easy for everyone to remember.
It is not compulsory the domain is 6 or less letters word, but make sure it is easy to remember (either long or short) and also dont let it be too long.

5. Don't advertise your unpurchased domain name
Don't go to forums and ask for opinions on the new domain you want to purchase, before you
wake up the next day, it would have been purchased by a hungry scammer, you will have to pay them before they sell it to you and the money will be beyond your plan.

6. Avoid replacing words with letter
If you buy a domain name and make it 9jamusic,com instead of naijamusic,com if the second person with that naijamusic,com is your competitor, he can wipe you away within days, your visitor may just mistype that 9ja to
naija and fall for naijamusic,com immediately.
This always happen when people get to know your website name from the voice tag u put in a music.

7. Avoid going for a plural domain name
Buying a plural domain name which singular is already existing is very risky.
Adding s to the back of your domain name is very risky.
For Example, nairaland,com is already in existence, you then buy a domain nairalands,com, people will always/easily remember Nairaland and forget Nairalands except devoted visitors which are scarce and will be minimum.

8. Make Sure the domain registrar you want to
use are reputable and reliable

There are some hungry registrars, hunger lead them to domain business, if you fall for such
registrar, your money is waisted, search thoroughly about the hoster you wish to use and their years of service before buying from them.

Did you want to buy a domain (or host your website) i will recommend you choose and use WHOGOHOST

We are recommending them due to the experience we had with them, they are reliable and trusted.

It is not owned by a hungry registrar (lol), so you have nothing to fear.
