Website Basics-Choosing a Domain Name
(Page 1 of 3 )
The first step in building a website is in the choice of a domain name.Whether you are a doctor, lawyer, plumber, aluminum siding salesman, or if you want to start up a website to feature your family dog Spot, the entire endeavor begins with the choice of a domain name.
The next logical question you might ask, is “What is a good domain name?”. The answer is, it depends. For example, if you are the person above who wants to build a website devoted to Spot, the family dog, then the answer is that the choice of a domain name really doesn’t matter. Why? Because you probably don’t really care about gaining a lot of traffic to your website, your site is probably only something you are going to produce for family and friends, to let them know about the latest goings on in Spot’s life. In a case like this, it does not matter whatsoever if you find a domain name like “ourdogspot.com” or not, since most likely you will only be giving out the website address to a few friends and family and maybe Aunt Tilly in Toledo.
In fact, in a case like the above, you could call the site anything you wanted to, “dogdiary.com” or even “catsdontlikespot.com” or something even as silly as “lookatthis.com”, which really has nothing at all to do with the subject matter of the website itself.
