A domain name can be as long as 63 characters. Keep it short as makes sense and as simple as possible. This will make it easier to type in and for you to provide to others. Imagine giving someone your email address with a domain name that is 63 characters long!
Make it relevant
Keep it relevant. Could be or include your company name, organization name, or brand name. You could include your city, state, or keywords if relevant.
Do web searches for similar websites to get ideas of what others use for their domain names. This should give you some ideas for your domain name. It can give you ideas for variations too if the domain name you prefer isn’t available.
Yes you can! You can register a domain for future use or to use with another service like email. You can buy a domain from InfoQuest and use it with a service you already have providing they support using your own domain name.
A WHOIS (who is?) lookup will provide contact information and other technical details for a domain. If the domain owner uses whois privacy you will find details on the service they are using and an email address that forwards to the domain owner.
For most domains you can perform at WHOIS lookup at: WHOIS LOOKUP
Some types of domains may require you to go to the site of the organization responsible for that type of domain.
Whois privacy is a must to keep your information private. Especially important for anyone using their domain for a blog, service area business or other type of business out of their home. If you have an office or storefront we recommend either using whois privacy or make sure to use your business address and contact information when registering your domain.
