QUICK START GUIDE: DOMAIN NAME

1. Choose a domain name

 

Domain Names Matter

If you are already in business you will want to use that name or a variation of it.

 

When picking a name also consider what people will be searching for.

For example a new independent discount shoe store called “Jay’s Shoe”s might be found easier at cheapshoes.com
