Hi guys I found this nice article on internet and would like to share with you:
Domain names are essentially one of the most, if not the most important part of webmastering. They are the one thing that people need to remember if they want to return to your site and thus, it is very important to pick up the correct domain name for your site.
This section of the forum is where you can focus your discussions of domain names and talk about them in all shapes and forms. Remember, everyone has their own opinions, views and experiences and we can often learn a lot from these. The more you give, the more you will get back, which is the quickest and easiest way to learn the ways of domaining.
There are many things to consider when purchasing or registering a domain name, each of which I will go over briefly but can then be discussed at more length through the threads and posts in this section.
Something that has changed a lot in the last few years is the amount of different domain extensions you can pick up. They are generally separated into TLDs (top level domains) which include .com, .net, .us, .org and .info and ccTLDs (country code top level domains) like .us, .co.uk, .tv, .ca, and .cn. When choosing a domain, it is very important to focus on the use of the domain or the country it will be applicable in. While it’s generally accepted that .com has and will continue to hold the greatest value, other domain extensions are rising in popularity and it seems only a matter of time before they come into line with some of the other big extensions like .net.
It is also important to pick up memorable names. There is nothing worse than having a domain name that people either can’t spell or just don’t remember. It’s also a good idea to have a good keyword domain as well, that shows what your site is about. For example, if you wanted to start up a forum about cats, and if you could pick up “cat forums” for a reasonable price, you should do so, because it will be the easiest to submit to search engines for those exact terms. (see the SEO section of the site for this)
A final point to make is the difference between ‘wholesale’ and ‘end user’. Wholesale is the market value of a domain, in other words, how much approximately the domain would be worth if sold between two people interested mainly in selling the domain on eventually. Finding an End User is the ultimate goal for domainers, as end users are those people, or generally companies, that want a specific domain to advertise their company or a particular product. Finding an end user reaps the most financial rewards, so if you can find one, you’ve found the domaining holy grail.
