Why domain names are important

Domain names are an important part of the internet because they simplify how we find things on the world wide web. Without domain names we would be using numerical addresses to identify the digital spaces we wanted to go to. Domains are just as important to a website owner as they are to a website visitor. A website owner wants their visitors to be able to easily find and share their website with other people. On the other hand website visitors want to engage with websites that are easy to use and easy to remember.

What you choose to be your domain name is extremely important. It will affect how your potential customers remember, share, and find you on the internet. It's easy to get overwhelmed watching that blinking cursor determine the name of your website. There are a few simple steps to registering the perfect domain name for your project.

The first step in registering a good domain name is to ensure that it properly fits the business or company that it represents. As you begin searching for domain names you will become aware that many domain names are unavailable. This doesn't mean that you still can't find the perfect domain name. It means you may have to become a little bit more creative, without making your domain name complex.

Let's begin with an example company. Josh has a wood Workshop. He wants to register the name joshswoodshop.com. To his surprise he's not the only Josh interested in wood shop work. Since his initial domain name is not available there are other options for him to choose that are still useful for his use case. He could try different variations of his desired domain name such as: joshswoodshopof[town].com | joshswoodworks.com | joshswordworkings.com
