Guide to choose an Unique Domain Name

     1. First thing you have to choose an name. 
  • The name should be short and pronounceable.
  • It should not contain any numbers because if you tell your domain name to others, they will misunderstand it.  For example Timetoknow and Time2know both are same when we pronounce it.
  • But if you want to make a brand, then you can choose numbers in your domain name.  After brand establishment, people will easily remember your domain name.
For example, if we ask anyone to spell the name of Youtube , then they correctly spell it because now Youtube is a big brand.  But when we go to the timeline where youtube is not launched then they decide the name of the product as UTube not Youtube and launched it and it becomes very successful and now we ask someone to spell the name of the product, then they will spell it is as UTube not Youtube, because it is now big brand with the spelling of UTube so everyone know it correctly.
  • So If you want to become a big brand then the spelling of the brand name will be automatically remembered by people.
     2. And next step is search your chosen domain name across all platforms like Google, Bing and other search engines to find your name is already exit or not.  For example, your domain name may be a name of a big company or a celebrity star name or the name may be have any copyright issues by other brands.
