3 More (Lesser Known) Tips for Choosing the Best Domain Name

As in our previous articles, we illustrated a number of very important tips to finding the best domain name – the ones that’s not only right for you, but offers the most help to the growth of your business. The thing about your domain name, according to the experts at Domain Marketa, is that your domain name is like your introduction to the world. The same way your name, and the way you might say hello to another individual upon your first meeting is a crucial first impression, the domain name is the same. And therefore it is crucial to have a strong, well-thought-out first impression to the world – that not only spells out (literally) who you are, but gives somewhat of an opening into who or what you are online and if you are a business, provide somewhat of a small baseline as to what your business is and does, plus any services or products that might be offered. Now while some of the previous articles that illustrated more of the common, or otherwise obvious tips for finding a domain name, the right domain name – to many, this article might focus on some of the lesser known tips to finding the right domain name for you. From the team at Domain Marketa, here are some of the important tips.

Act Fast, Domains Can Go Fast!
Just the same as business ideas can only last so long, and inventions are simply waiting for other inventors to invent them – the same can be said for domain names. In today’s world rarely are ideas coming straight out of the blue anymore, and for the most part, the best and most popular inventions are simply additions to other inventions, or methods to improve upon or add an auxiliary feature to something that might already be in existence. When this is the case with ideas and inventions, things like copyright, trademark, and even your domain name are not safe as your brilliant idea might be popping into another individual’s head, any day now. So, to make sure that when that idea does pop into their head, and they look for the domain, and its already taken – you have got to act NOW. Domain names are like real estate, and people are dying to just sit on quality domains, even if they aren’t interested themselves, simply just to get the maximum price out of you. While this might seem to be in poor taste, you can always do the same – and often, when you’ve got a high quality domain name, people might be willing to pay upwards of 10, 20, 100, or more, times the original price that they were able to register it for. This is how many individuals are able to make a side income from domain names.

Research Your Chosen Domain Name
While you might like a domain name, as it goes along with your personal blog or business name – it is vital that you do your research before going through with the purchase and registration process. You are able to tell if there are individuals with very similar domains creates, that might also have very similar sounding and spelling social media pages as well. Before you get a domain name, there might already be a business that is incorporated with that exact name, and while they don’t have he domain yet, in the near future having that domain might turn out to be an asset, if they ever get to be a bigger company, they might be willing to buy the domain for you for quite a decent price higher than what you paid for it.

Plan Ahead for Business Growth
When it comes to running an online business, sure, you might be happy with doing exactly what you’re doing now, at the same volume, and to the same size customer base – but in many cases, you may change your mind a few years down the road, and decide you want to expand – be sure to find a domain name that could reflect this change. According to the experts at Domain Marketa, you will certainly want to choose a domain name that’s related to your industry / niche because it gives users some idea of what your website is about. But you also don’t want to limit your long-term options too much, as down the line you may want to sell more products, and expand the different types of products available. According to Domain Marketa, a florist might choose a domain name like orchidblog.com, but then they may want to start blogging about other flowers beside orchids. In that case, the domain might prevent you from attracting readers interested in other flowers.

There are a number of different tips that can help you to choose the right domain name, whether it’s for business or for your own personal thoughts and feelings, the right website and domain is able to speak the words you want others to hear.

Customer Reviews

  • My husband and I are so happy to have found Domain Marketa. We finally decided to create a website for our restaurant, after years of putting it off. We’re not very tech savvy, but luckily for us all it took was one Google search and were able to get the best price on the perfect domain…without any confusion. Simple, super straightforward service!

  • I built my business from the ground up, and as things expanded some investors required that I start offering an ecommerce option. I know my industry, but I am really terrible with online stuff, plus my last web guy cheated me out of a website and domain, leaving me stuck needing to get things going fast. Domain Marketa helped me out so much they made things so incredibly easy. They walked me through finding my domain, getting security measures, and registration all over the phone. No lie, they taught me a thing or two about customer service! 😊

  • Without Domain Marketa I would have never had the domain I wanted for my SaaS company. It turned out that someone had owned it already – literally just sitting on it for about 4 years. After a quick search and reaching out to Domain Marketa’s customer service, I found out the person wanted a king’s ransom for it, and I would have paid. (was literally the exact name of my company…). Lucky me, the guy from Domain Marketa was able to negotiate the price down several hundred dollars, no exaggeration! Got my domain and site running in under a week.

  • Over the last year or so, with Covid hitting us hard, my retail business saw drastic changes, and to be honest my heart really hadn’t been in it for a while. And with business dwindling we ended up shutting things down, selling off our inventory to competitors, and pulling the website. Ironically, 3 months later, I got an email from someone at a company called Domain Marketa, saying that a customer wanted my domains. I never even thought selling just the domains was even possible, since I picked them up for a few bucks years ago. Domain marketa brokered the deal completely, I never had to even speak to the buyers. It turned out to be the biggest sale we made all year HAHA! Much more than I originally purchased them for.

  • After stumbling onto Domain Marketa, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy they made things for me. With other sites and companies, its always a bunch of hoops to jump through, and random pop ups I don’t understand. With DM it was nothing like that, I got everything I needed in a few clicks!

  • My colleague and I just started our own private practice, (we are both dermatologists) and between all the paperwork, dealing with construction on the new facility and all the other busy work involved, we completely forgot to think about the website. I thought I could just renovate my previous practice site but there were issues with the naming and I didn’t want any jealousy with my new partner since we only knew each other for 6 months. One afternoon my son got me on Domain Marketa and we purchased and registered a new domain name within 5 minutes. I must say, it felt so refreshing, unlike those other sites Domain Marketa didn’t try to sell me a million different services or any of those pre-selected add-ons. The best part of the experience was when I needed to contact customer service for something and the individual did make one suggestion, reminding me that since we were running a medical practice, we would need a security certificate for HIPPA compliance! Such a knowledgeable staff!

  • I have been doing business online for years now, and started over a dozen different websites over the past year or so, so I usually have people I work with for domains from, the usual culprits lol. But with a recommendation I decided to give Domain Marketa a try – the simplest and cleanest experience I’ve had online. Definitely using their service in the future. No nonsense, no ads popping up, just straightforward find domains you want and checkout – and much better pricing.

  • For anyone in need of a place to buy domains, you absolutely need to check out Domain Marketa. No one makes it as easy as them. My company focuses on marketing and branding small businesses, and with the help of Domain Marketa, my assistant who didn’t know what a domain was 6 months ago is setting up SSL certificates and getting DNS info. Check them out!

  • If you’re looking for a simple place to purchase a domain for your personal or business website than Domain Marketa is where you need to be. I run a small business so I’m tired of being sold to everyday. With them its none of that, you buy what you need, no pressure, no fuss.

  • I knew I liked them when I didn’t see their site flooded with banner ads and data-stealing traps! Domain Marketa – A+ service.
    Anthony V.
  • After they straight up tried to rob me of hundreds of dollars in unknown charges, and literally sold off my domain from underneath me, I swore off working with a big domain company, I won’t say the name, but you know who I mean lol Domain Marketa’s customer service won me over, it feels like you’re calling a friend and not some huge company, gotta love the personal touch.

  • 2020 killed my sewing supply store. Our loyal following was mostly stricken with covid and we were forced to close for weeks at a time. We tried selling on Amazon but they killed our margins, just not the right place for us. We finally decided to setup a store of our own. Domain Marketa made registering a domain very simple and the agent on the phone made some great recommendations for setting up our online store, setting up ads, and connecting our social media. Thankfully we’ve always stayed in touch with our customers on Facebook. Things are picking back up again and I am exh5d for what the new year will bring!!
