Decide on a name for your website as a first step. Ask yourself, "What best represents my dream?" or "What will be the simplest terms for my customers/readers to enter in when they wish to visit my website?" When you believe you've found the perfect name, type it into the domain name search field above to see whether it's available. Don't let someone else get it first! Choosing a decent domain name is crucial to the success of your website/business, so don't delay! Start typing right away!
It's ok to let your imagination run wild while searching for a domain name for your website, but you must be careful not to get too carried away. If you get it right, you'll have a lot of success, but if you're too clever, you could not have as much. Here are a few pointers to help you find the right name.
Keep it short. First things first, you can’t (or at-least shouldn’t) go for a long domain name. That’s just a no-no! Go for something soft and sweet!
Don’t use trademark names. While choosing a domain, ensure that nobody possesses a trademark on the name you are proposing. Otherwise, you could risk facing some legal action.
Pronounce it. Before you hit the “buy” button, try saying your domain out loud and see how easy or hard the pronunciation and the sound of it is. It’s not recommended to go for a domain name that will be a colloquial ordeal.
Use the correct domain extension. If you are signing up for a localized domain, having the correct domain extension is a must. A .com domain is universal and everybody loves to get their hands on one, but there are other viable options out there as well. Choose wisely.
Brand specific. Most of the time, it’s a good idea to go with the same name as your brand is, if you already have a business in place. If, however, your ideal domain name is taken, you can try a name that’s slightly different but sends the same message!
Avoid special characters and numbers. Using hyphens and numbers is another no-no for domains. It can prove to be a communicational nightmare. Imagine telling a person your website name that has a number and eventually they are perceiving it wrong.
Make use of keywords. Your website is going to be as good as its search engine optimization or, in other words, SEO. While choosing a domain name, try to make use of keywords to enhance SEO for your website

A domain name is, simply put, an address on the internet that people can use to access web servers and web pages.
