3 Tips When Creating a Domain Name

 

 

 

 

owning a domain name  Your domain identifies your business

Your domain identifies your business in the eyes of the people searching for the product or products you are selling on your website and in the eyes of the search engines.

So, is choosing a domain important? The answer is yes. I hope to enlighten you to some important elements to creating and owning a domain name.

 

What Is A Domain Name

What is a Domain Name? Your website has a unique address called an IP address. The domain name–in essence,

is the IP address with a naming convention. It is far easier for people to remember a name instead of a bunch of numbers.

 


 

 

Creating A Domain Name

Many people new to the Internet and to the Internet Business, do not realize the importance of a Domain Name,

they just think they can put up any creative name and people will come. If you’re lucky, that may be true, but in truth, your creativity should incorporate the following tips:

 

When creating a domain name,  you should keep in mind the

following tips:

 

1. If it is possible, go with a “.com” extension. This is the most common, and easier for people to remember. In my case, no .com was available, so I opted for the .biz. Since I’m in a business of affiliate marketing — I felt it perfect for my needs.

 

2. The name itself — Do not use dashes or numbers in your domain name–it is hard for people to remember, unless it is central to the theme of your site.

 

3. Keep your name as compact as possible — the fewer words in the naming/description of your website will makes it easier for people to remember your site name, and that is definitely what you want.

 

Protecting Your Domain Name

Once you have your domain name, and your website is flourishing — you must protect your domain.

So how do you protect your domain? At the end of the year, the registrar will send you a notice that your domain name is about to expire. In advertantly, you may be thinking,

 

that they just want your money, and they can darn well wait til the date it is due to get your money! Well, I wouldn’t do that.

There is a very legitimate process called “drop catching”– that can easily destroy all your hard work in one instance.

 

Drop Catching

Drop catching is a legal process by which people can quickly grab domain names that have expired and use the link to create a website consisting of advertisements — or worse yet,

 

resell them to make a profit off of your hard earned traffic. So, it is wise that you do not wait til the last minute to pay your registration. You do not want to log-in to your site, to find an error,

 

or find out that suddenly you are no longer in business.

 

The rules of the I CAN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers), gives domain registrars 45 days after the expiration date to notify the website owner that their domain name is going to be dropped from the registry.

After the 45 days, you have a 30 day grace period, then your domain is up for grabs. However ..

 

Some domain services have created an auction process for expired names, such as GoDaddy.com, that begins the auctioning of domain names in as little of 30 days after the expiration date, to prospective buyers.

 

However, Go Daddy.com does state to the prospective buyer in the auction process, that the original owners still have the option of reclaiming their name.

 


 

What’s in a name? If it’s a domain name, it can be your future online. So

choose wisely, and protect what you worked, or have been working for — a business online.

23 recommendations When Submit a Article

Every site has its own set of guidelines

but I think if you adhere to the following – more of your articles will get   published.  It is best to checkeach site’s set of rules (but who has the time)or follow this basic set of do’s and don’ts.

 

1. Do submit articles on a regular basis

 

2. Do capitalize the first letter of every word in the subject line

 

3. Do check the spelling and grammar – and then check it again

 

4. Do write original articles about topics you have a passion for

 

5. Do write articles that are about 400-800 characters in length – too short and too long will be rejected

 

6. Do write an article – not a blatant advertisement

 

7. Do check the paragraph formatting

 

 

8. Do write an informative Author’s resource box

 

9. Do use HTML tags (if allowed) – I would demonstrate an example of a proper link – but most likely it would

 

cause the article to be declined. Just Google HTML link to see how to do it correctly

 

10. Don’t bold the subject or your links

 

11. Don’t submit more than 2 links in the author’s resource box

 

12. Don’t put links in the text of the article

 

13. Don’t cloak links – do it legally to get links back to your site

 

14. Don’t write an ad – write an article (I know – I already said this above

15. Get a real domain

it is much more acceptable and professional than blogspot, angelfire, or any of the other free site places.

 

If you want to have a blog – get a domain and use wordpress – the domain will cost all of about 8 dollars per year and hosting can be had for under $5 per year.

 

16. Use an autosubmitter.

There are free and paid services – either way – your article(s) will be at hundreds or thousands of sites instead of one or two.

Be advised that some article sites don’t accept articles submitted by autosubmitters – but they are in the minority.

 

17. Visit your articles.

Many article sites will send you an email that tells you that your article has been submitted. Go and look and make sure it looks OK,

the link(s) are correct and then vote for it and if the site has social bookmarks – bookmark it.

 

18. If you use Private Label Rights (PLR) articles –

change them – make them different so that they are not the same as a bazillion other articles online.

19. Check the sites’ guidelines

 some don’t accept gambling articles, sexually oriented articles, etc. Some will even decline your article if it doesn’t pass their internal word search.

 

I have had some declined for using the word “sex” or “marijuana” in the article. Even though the “sex” article was health related and the “marijuana” article was a travel advice article informing travelers not to smuggle drugs. Sometimes you can’t win.

 

20. Don’t get frustrated.

It can take time for the articles to get indexed in the search engines and it can take time for the article site owners to approve your articles. Just keep plugging away and it will pay off.

 

21. Quality is better than quantity.

Just cranking out crap articles daily is not as good as writing 2 or 3 good articles every week.

 

22. Take time with the subject.

If the subject is boring – most likely the article will not get read. Be creative.

 

23. Write 2 or 3 sentences in the Author’s resource box.

Tell us about yourself and why you are the expert on this topic or why we should click your link.

Hopefully this helps you in getting more of your articles published.
