It is all about promoting your business and registering a domain name is the first step. First of all, you need to check out whether your business name is available or not. If it is already taken by someone then you should look for similar suggestions. For example, if you deal with soft toys and looking for softtoys.com but it is already taken, then you can go with bestsofttoys.com or softtoysforyou.com or something like that. You can check out suggestions using search engines. But, be careful; do not go with the names that are misspelled or plural version of any popular or existing site.
You can take at least 6 or 7 phrases or words to describe your product/service/business. You can create a combination with these words to create a possible domain name. You should try to create something easy to remember and a good domain name. You better make a list and sort out a few of them which are easy to pronounce and memorable.
Keep it simple:
A domain name should be easy to type in the search bar. It makes your customers or audience easy to remember and type directly using the address bar. If it is not an easy domain name, your customers may type it wrong and then reach to the different site. It may irritate them so go for the simple. It should be easy, small, good and relevant to your business.
This is how you can make things work for you and your business too. You should research before getting any domain name.
