What’s in a Name?
We all have a name, whether it is a person, or a business, such as Cheap Domains. A name identifies who we are. But, although no two humans are the same, we might have exactly the same name as someone else.
On the Internet, however, we can be totally different to anyone else on the planet. This is because when we have a domain name we are unique. No one else can have exactly the same domain name.
This website, for example, is Cheap Domains followed by .site, and this identifies it on the Internet.
Why is it important to be unique? Because that’s the way we stand out. That’s how we can look professional. That’s how we attract business.
You only get one chance to make that all-important first impression. So, getting it right is vital!
Professional businesses use their own domain, in fact some businesses will even buy up close domain names, or those with other extensions, such as .net, .org, .info etc.
By redirecting those domains to their main site, they may capture any visitors who might have mistyped the URL into their browser.
Why Buy From Cheap Domains
We at Cheap Domains Believe All Domain Extensions Should Be Considered
What is the right extension for me?
There’s no easy answer to this.
Traditionally .com is the one most widely recognised, and is likely to remain so for many years to come.
Google states that all Generic TLDs (gTLD) are treated equally by them.
Be careful with Country Code Top-Level Domains. The only reason you would want to use a ccTLD is to be more likely to be seen in the search engines in a particular country, or geographical area, for example .us for the United States.
Therefore, better to use a gTLD unless a specific country ranking is of importance.
A huge problem over the years has been that companies have found it increasingly difficult to get hold of an appropriate domain name for their company. Businesses have had to make do with non-related domains, or, where the right name is available, have had to pay incredibly high fees for the domain. A kind of ‘supply and demand’ scenario.
More recently, however, new domain extensions have sprouted up. So now for ‘speciality’ subjects such as life, apartments, zone etc there are literally hundreds of choices. Some would argue that these new domain extensions can often look better than the longer .com version.
With the introduction of new gTLDs, business are better able to use a more brand-relevant domain name. Thus, joeblogg.dentist immediately says that this business is clearly related to dentistry.
These new gTLDs can be of real advantage to conventional businesses, hobbyists, interest groups, service industries, sites involved with vacations, real estate and so on.
City extensions are useful for a business to easily get recognized as a local company. For example, a business website using a .london extension lets everyone know where the store is physically located.
In searching for certain keywords you are likely to find some big hitters utilising some of these extensions in addition to their existing Web addresses.
Here at Cheap Domains we sell a variety of domain extensions.
