What should I think about when selecting a domain name?
Don’t get discouraged
Selecting a domain for your company can be difficult. Many of the one or two word domains have already been taken. It can take several days to find that perfect domain name.
Domain should describe the product.
Select a domain name that easily describes your business or products. For example: Soccerstuff.com or MyCorporationName.com. This will aid you when you start to increase your ranking with search engines.
Your domain shouldn’t be too long
Keep it short. Long domain names are difficult to remember. Try to keep the domain name limited to two words when possible.

Here are some additional tips!
Keep Track of your Domain
Keep track of your domain names expiration date and keep your contact information up to date! Most lost domains are due to out of date contact information.
Check the email contacts listed on your domain
Be aware with who is listed on your contact information! You or your organization should always be listed as the organization and administrative contact.
Try not to use free email accounts to register your domain
Be careful not to use free email addresses from services like hotmail or Gmail as many of these free services require you to login to your account often. Many of these services will deactivate your account after 30 days of inactivity allowing someone else to register your free email address and use this to hijack your domain.
Lock your domain
When possible, place a registrar lock on your domain. This will lock your domain record with that registrar and prevent it from being transferred, modified, or deleted by a third party.
Take precautions with emails
Do not reply or click on links in any domain related email correspondence you do not recognize. Be very careful not to reply to any official looking renewal notices you receive in the mail from companies you do not recognize. Unscrupulous registrars have been known to submit mass amounts of transfers hoping that a small percentage of confused registrants will accidentally confirm transfers. When in doubt, contact your original registrar to verify any suspicious messages.
Renew your domain early and for 5+ years.
Consider renewing your domain name early and for a longer amount of time. If your domain name is critical to your business and is one that you will want for many years, consider registering if for 5+ year increments.
