How to Choose a Domain Name for your Next WordPress Site

As millions of domain names have been registered worldwide, and thousands of new ones are added every day, many new website owners face the question of how to find a good domain name for their next WordPress site.

Obviously, all good .com names are already registered, and owners set their domain name prices high. If you want a free .com domain, then you need to combine several different words to come up with something that is not yet in use.

Choosing a domain name looks like a hard task, but it’s actually pretty simple if you narrow down keywords that explain your website the best.

So, how do you do this?

  1. Start with brainstorming all the keyword ideas and writing them down
  2. Now narrow down the list by eliminated words that are hard to spell, not related to your site, are too long, or just confusing
  3. Pick a few words you like the most and start searching for available domains

You can use sites like godaddy.com or networksolutions.com to check if the domain is available.

Remember that shorter domain names are easier to remember and type. For example, johnspizza.com is easier to remember and type than johnspizzaandpastarestaurant.com

Also remember to think about what your potential visitors would type into search engines while looking for things you have to offer. By using words that people actually use to search things online, you can increase your web traffic by improving your search ranking.
