Top Level Domains: Creating Popular Domain Names

By Stephen Grisham, Sr.

Utilizing the top level domain as part of the name is another trend in domain registration. There are several very desirable country domains like me (Montenegro), it (Italy), in (India), fm (Federated States of Micronesia), and many others. So if the domain name that you want is “kiss me”, you can just register the name “kiss” under the “me” top domain. Chances are that many such names have already been taken. There is also a really crucial downside to this type of domain. Because these domains are owned by individual countries, the assumption is that the web sites belong to them as well. This is shown via the positions in search engines. However, due to the names being simple to recall, it is expected that a majority of people will input them right into browsers.

Certainly, most of the names have been registered already. And these domains also have a fairly important disadvantage. Because these top domains are connected to separate countries, it is believed that these countries own these websites also. Search engine rankings show this. But, since these names easily stay on your mind, it is hoped that many users will just key them directly into their browsers.

Odds are you have had the occasion where your preferred name is already taken with every generic top level domain. What are the choices? You can either make slight changes to your chosen name by inserting another word before or after it, or you can put hyphens between the words.

Many people find that the domain name they want is already registered with all purpose top level domains. What alternatives are there? Either you can slightly change your name by putting an extra word in front of or after your chosen name or you could put dashes in the middle of the words. Since the last option is often utilized by spammers, it is not a popular choice, but the first option is supported by a number of registrars. They will offer similar domains if the one you want is already registered.

It can really tough selecting a good domain name. This holds true particularly when you learn that the majority of popular domain names and their variants are already registered. Nevertheless, when you discover a good name that still remains unregistered, you may possibly have discovered a gold mine.
