Tips For Choosing A Domain Name
- Make It Easy
Your domain name should be easy to remember and easy to type! Your domain name should be your website name.
- Your Name
When possible, it is best to choose a domain name that is your organization's or business' name.
- Keep It Short
Domain names can be up to 67 characters long. We do not recommend you use 67 characters
Don't Use Numbers & Hyphens
Both numbers and hyphens make it difficult for you to verbally tell someone your URL
- Extension .COM or .ORG
The ".com" extension is by far the most popular URL in the world. Many non-profits choose to use a ".org" website to help identify that they are a non-profit. This is a great idea. When possible, you should also reserve the ".com" of your name as well.
