Written by Saiful Islam

Buying well-researched domain names is so important for starting online business because the keyword on the domain name gets the top priority on search engines. If you can grab a keyword for your domain name which is searched lots of time and face less competition, it can drag lots of traffic from the search engines since the beginning. Without deep analysis of the domain name can lead you few steps back and take more time to get relevant traffic to your site. Moreover, top level domain name with great search volume can reduce the necessity of having more contents than low level and irrelevant domain names.
Things you need to know:

1. What is domain name?

This is the unique identity of a site among the web. Using the domain name a website gets the access on the internet. To start with a website we must have to register a domain name.
Example:
Facebook.com, W3schools.com, khanacademy.org

2. How to find out an unregistered domain name?

To find out an unregistered domain name you can visit any domain seller site and enter any name that you expect. There can be found lots of extension with a domain name like .com/.co/.net/.org/.info/.asia/.mobi/ and so on.  Among them “.com “ is mostly used domain name extension which have come from the entity “ Commercial ” and other mostly common extension and their entity have given below:

3. Which domain is perfect for me?

To choose a domain name we need to consider the following concepts:

    i. Analyze the domain keywords:

We should choose such keywords which explain your site the most. Because if the domain name can’t give the clear concept about the site some visitors may forget the irrelevant name of your domain.

   ii. Prefer the most easily memorable names:

Whenever we make a site with long, strange, irrelevant name then it becomes tough to remember for visitors because those become unable to touch their brain.

  iii. Different from popular established sites:

If the domain name gets similarity with the established sites then there creates a serious problem to drag people from search engines because generally established sites get top rank on the search engine. So, as usually people will visit those top ranked sites. Thus you will lose a big number of visitors. The market will become more competitive.

Steps to find the appropriate keyword:

If you don’t own products/services for business, you may try this process to begin a successful business. Actually analyzing the market and creating a plan before starting is important steps before buying domain nameso important to win the market. Anyway, there is a helpful tool “ Keyword planner ”(produced my Google) which is so useful to analyze the market. Using this tool we can plan for most searched keywords and the competition behind those keywords.
