We think everyone reading here knows, the choice of the domain name is an important step in designing, launching and promoting a website. In the choice of the domain name, we will proceed in two possible ways.
- We will want a domain name that is short and memorable (Example: DailyMedico)
- We will want a domain name that is completely transparent to the content (Again, the example; DailyMedico comes. Hearing “Daily Medico” makes you to understand, it is a website where daily posting about medical posts are likely to be present. For record, DailyMedico is our other website).
Choosing the name is necessarily a big step. Allow time to choose the extension that goes with it better. Today, getting a .com name is as cheap as for other domain names.
There are also some kind of promotions running either today or tomorrow from different domain name sellers, resellers.
Availability of domain name is indeed the main criterion. If the domain name is unavailable, difficult to buy ! In 70% cases, those domains are parked. You frankly do not know the past history or SEO Karma of that particular domain name, even if you are ready to pay more to buy a parked domain. You simply do not know, whether Google is frowning on it! There is no fool proof tool to get the complete information. So, avoid buying parked domain, unless you are going to use it as a redirection to your existing website (for example, we can buy DailyMedico . net to redirect to main domain).
The . com extension provides confidence in the mind of visitors
We think at this point, everyone will agree. The . com is a sign of confidence.
This extension gives confidence for several reasons. Firstly, because the big sites use it for serious purposes. Secondly, because all official sites end with it (except Goverment sites, Education sites etc. Keep in mind, they do not need SEO as you or I need.). Finally, because. it exudes a certain proximity to ensure security. Do not forget that what counts is the feeling is nothing greater than that. Almost all Internet newbie surfer knows a website’s name completes with . com. Taking into account their concerns should be obvious.
Because . com rank well on Google
If there is also a very important parameter to take into account and that we clearly used to dealing with is the good side of SEO. We are often getting questions about the extension to choose. In fact, we must consider both the best extension and the potential target market. If you want to give a character in proximity to country specifically, a . com is a very good option; just change the Geographical targeting in Google Webmasters Tool to that country.
Just the day before yesterday I was looking for information on a technical subject. Guess what was the first result? Keeg.fr. At the time, Google was frankly irrelevant since there is no info on the article I wrote myself. But that, who cares, the goal is to ranker. And there is no problem with. En France.
There are some impossibilities noted. One example has no right to create a domain name offensive.
Is not . net another option?
If you can linger on every visitors ear ( or eyes :D ) that your website ends with . net and not . com ; then it might be as good as . com; because, both of them is top level domain name.
