Importance of a good domain for small businesses

A good domain is very important for a small business. It is the first impression that a customer gets of your business. The domain for your small business is equivalent to your online brand. Before even viewing your website, your customer will judge your domain name. If it is too long and complicated, the customer will already be declined. This can happen if your domain name is very long, includes hyphens, abbreviations, homonyms or complex words that the average person is not used to seeing. On the other hand, if your domain name is short, simple and to the point, your customer will not judge it negatively and already be inclined to visit your small business website. Ensure that you don’t lose any customers or potential ones in such an early stage by not having an adequate domain name to represent your small business.

Don't copy your competitors - Be unique

Don’t pick a domain name that resembles the one of your competitor. Be unique in choosing your own domain that stands out from the rest. Choosing a domain name that is similar to your competitors will only cause confusion. It can even lead to your clientele ending up on your competitor’s business site and end up with you losing your customer. This would defeat the original purpose of having a similar domain, if you lose your customers to your competitor. Create your own brand that can’t be confused with the one of your competitor.
