The foundation of any successful website is a well thought-out Domain Name Your Domain Name is more than simply your online address. In many cases or actually most cases it is Your Brand whether you are an individual with a personal website or a midsized business or large corporation. Branding your Website identifies you from the rest.
You want your Domain Name to be different, unique, but at the same time you want the Domain Name to represent who you are or who your company is, and reflect your personality or the company.
There are countless names to choose from and with the advent of many different Top Level Domain Names and many different country codes it is now easier to ensure you choose the correct Domain Name for success.
A well though out Internet Marketing Plan is essential, and once this is accomplished that can be the basis for selecting your Domain Name.
Every effort should be made to have keywords you want to be found by in the Domain Name. For example it will significantly benefit your ranking to include keywords as shown.
Let's say you will sell widgets. Instead of using your name for a Domain Name like we have by using Annectas.org it would have been better to use for example; Atlantaseomarketing.org or atlantwebhosting.com. You can still use Branding on the page to ensure your Name Recognition is covered. There are exceptions.
For Example we have several Domain Names for our various services and solutions that all resolve to this site or the correct site where we maintain the service. By resolve we mean that there are several Domain Names that will bring you to this site. then you can utilize an array of various Domain Names.

Also very important is choosing the right Registrar for your Domain Name.
First you want to decide upon the Domain Name Extension for example whether to use .COM or .ORG etc.
.COM is the first to pop into anyone mind and by far is the most popular however, it may be better for your website to use another extension. .ORG is an excellent choice and is one of the original Domain Extensions. Many non-profit organization and other organization have commonly used this Extension, but is not limited to them. However, due to it's common use among such organizations it is looked at as being a trusted an Authoritative Extension. So give that thought when choosing, it could add a little leverage in Search Engine Rankings. We do suggest that if you choose the .ORG that you also register the .COM version as well. Reason is, most will assume your a .COM. This way you are sure to get all Traffic intended. We use the .COM with .ORG on some Sites and others we do not. Depends, often it will not be available. It certainly is worth the extra bucks to obtain both even the .NET if possible. This protects your Brand and ensures all Traffic is captured.
There are other extensions that are more specialized and obtainable by only certain organizations such as; .MIL, .GOV, .EDU..... If you are one of these specialized organization consider these as they will prove best for your website.
Now that said, it is time to determine where you will register your Domain Name or the Registrar to use.
Like with any purchase you will want to make sure you buy from the most reputable company you can. A company which will give you the very best service every-time on a consistent basis. One that places it 's customers first. You want a company that you can reach anytime for any reason, and one that you can , if you wish, speak to someone in person without a hassle. Many companies today are so impersonal, and they make it extremely difficult to speak to a real person, if they allow it at all. There are fine companies out there that have direct phone customer support 25/y, 365 days a year. Find that type of company. You will be glad you did. Trust me.
