    It’s decided, you will be present on the web. You have chosen a Web Hosting provider for your website. You know what you will put into your site to your audience.

    Choosing a Domain Name is very important, for the future of your website. When someone thinks of your website, he will think of it by name. If your name is also your URL, he will automatically know where to go. For example, when people think of Wcloudhosting.com , they don't have to wonder what URL to type into their browser to get a web provider of hosting solutions. The name of the web provider is also the URL.
    Here are some rules that can help you:
    - It should be short
    - It should be easy to remember
    - It should be easy to spell
    - It should be easy to type
    - It should be descriptive
    - It should be unique
    - It should be related to your business name
    - It should be related to your product name
    - It should be related to your service name
    - It must have an extension: .com, .net, .info, .org,

    2. Isn't every domain name unique
    3. Isnt domain name have extension.

    Short, catchy, without any special character and easy to remember name has more impact and high value.

    Thanks for these ideas. I just want to ask. How these rules can help us in choosing a domain name? What could be the result if we will do each rule? Thank you in advance.

    Both hyphens and numbers make it hard to give your domain name verbally and falls down on being easy to remember or type.
