Select a Best Domain Name for Your Website, Classified and Web Development Company
If being found in the major search engines (Google, Yahoo, Msn, etc.) is important to you, I highly recommend you to register a domain name that contains top high paying keywords instead of your name or your company name or any favorite name.
Use Google Keyword Planner to Pick the Right Domain Name
Go to Keywords country or Google Search Tools to find out right keywords for your domain name.
Always keep in mind users always surf by phrase or subject, not by correct keywords or exact domain name. Select exact keyword or keywords that perfect matches with your content. Then only you can attract target audience.
So with that in mind, a name like www.onlinejobs.com would be much better than www.jobs.com, because here your content is about online jobs. So it perfectly matches with your content.
Sure, you can still list your company name on your web pages, but I believe its more important to make sure the domain name includes your important “Seatrch Engine Friendly” keywords if you want to receive traffic from all over.
Of course, you can still list your company name on the website some place, but your domain name will include all the important keywords you’ll want to be found with. You can use Google Search tools to do this.
Now, as always, there are some exceptions…
If you are just creating a website for a local business, getting traffic from all over the web may not be as important to you. This is because your customers will be local and you may want to grow your brand name in a specific area.
If this is the case, it may make more sense to register your company name and create brand awareness locally instead of trying to capitalize on search engine presence.
For example, let’s say you have a company is dealing with Real Estate in Chennai. Then you can choose your domain name as chennairealestate.com or chennaiproperties.com
Since you are only servicing local clients, you may not care if someone in other parts of the world can find your site in google, Yahoo or Msn. Since they are not likely to become one of your buyers.
In this case, its not as important to register a name filled with “search optimized” keywords.
You may decide to just reserve the company name, chennairealestate.com or chennaiproperties.com
Note: It is not important to select domain name with keywords, your content only paly a crucial role in indexing your website. But some search engines give more importance to domain name also.
More Suggestions on Choosing the Best Domain NameProtect your Domain Name by registering multiple extenstions (.net, .org, etc). This deters people from copying your name. For example, if your own www.onlinejobs.com, then you can register www.onlinejobs.in, .org, .net and so on.
So that you don’t have to build a site on all the domains, but you can reserve the others to keep people (copycats) from registering them because here on Internet there are lot of copycats who copy your content as well as your domain name with the similar name.

Protect Your PrivacyAs you’re registering your domain name, you will be presented with the option of keeping your domain name private – a good feature you’ll probably want to take advantage of.
Always keep one e-mail separately for your personal use and create another one business purpose.
Even though registering a “private” domain is not mandatory and will not completely block all spam, I highly recommend you select this option. I certainly wish this had been available when I created my first web site.
