Or, more like “Naming Your Child”…

This is where your “smart planning” kicks in. Many folks get enamored with the name they’ve chosen for their new company. They’re even more excited when they find out that they can license But here’s the rub…the reason this URL is available is because no one would likely use it. Think a little bit about what you sell and how search engines work.

Remember…search engines, the lifeblood of any Internet retailer are based on words.

Also the name of your web site is one weighted portion of how you score in the search engines. The name of your web site isn’t the only way search engines find you, but in the game of search engine optimization, it helps, so why not plan a little further?

Most web developers prefer a “.com” extension rather than the .net, .biz and other choices available.

You can find studies that argue both sides of this, but there is one undeniable fact…folks are used to .com as the defacto standard…they might even type it into an address bar without thinking. So with that in mind, start by looking for a .com URL.
