Sometimes before creating a blog you may spend time cracking your brain on which name to use for the blog. A friend of mine once asked me to suggest a domain name for his blog he intend starting. He said all the names he wanted to use have already been taken. Nevertheless, I decided to help him out. In trying to search for a domain name for him, I had to consider so many things. Some of these things can help anyone who is looking for a unique name for his blog.
Coming up with a domain name for him didn’t give me much trouble but there were other issues I have to contend with. Before I choose a domain name I always check to see if that name have not been used by someone else on social media. For example, you may choose this domain name www.mazinoblog.com
and when you want to create a facebook page and twitter handle, you discover that both social media name for MazinoBlog
already exist. If you’ve already purchased the domain name, it will not be easy for people to find you on social media apart from your blog. That is the reason before I chose my blog name, I had to check if the facebook page and twitter handle name is available.
Another thing you should consider is the email address. You don’t want to have a blog with the name MazinoBlog and your email address is email@example.com. I had to create firstname.lastname@example.org. It is advisable to secure such email address for your blog name. This will prevent someone else from creating such email ID and using it to commit atrocities in the name of your site.
These few tips could also be apply to business owners, cooperate organizations, as well as individuals who use the internet for their daily endeavors.
Note: Whatever domain name you choose should reflect on your niche. People should be able to know what your blog is about by mere looking at the URL. They should easily be able to deduce what the site stands for as per content and value. Twitter usernames does not exceed sixteen characters so it is advisable not to choose a domain name longer than sixteen characters.
