A domain can make or break a web site. Get it right and everybody will memorize it for good, get it wrong and they will never memorize the name of your web site. Hence, you should think of a domain that is directly related to the topic of your web site, your own personal name or your company's name. For example, the website of Acken Host – a renowned ICANN-appointed domain name registrar and shared hosting provider, is https://ackenhost.com. This domain is instantly associated with the name of the company and with hosting services in general, rendering it easy for the company's business associates and customers to discover it online.
More than fifty top-level domain name extensions to pick from
But don't forget that your private or corporate domain names do not mandatorily have to end with .com, where choices are limited. In fact, there is an almost unlimited range of top-level domain name extensions to select from, including .MOBI – for web sites intended for mobile device use, .TV – for multimedia web sites, .NAME and .ME – for personal sites, .CO, .NU and .WS – thought of as .COM substitutes, and practically any country-code top-level domain name that crosses your mind. A UK-based website might gain higher popularity if it uses a .CO.UK top-level domain name. However, if your business is in Canada or the United States, .CA or .US might be a wiser choice.
