How To Choose A Domain Name That Attracts Customers For Your Startup
Why is Your Domain Name Important?
I'm an investor in several start-ups, and one of the biggest questions I get is, "Ross, tell me how to pick a domain name," and "What are the best sites to pick a domain name?" Because there are many out there. If you're out there and you're thinking, "I've got a great idea, but I need a domain name." I'm not talking about the funny commercials that you see on GoDaddy or whatever. I'm talking about sites that actually you can input a word or keyword and come out with a .com, or .co, or .io, whatever extension that's available. Where do you find the domain name, and how can you tell which are available?
Frankly, hundreds and millions of domains are just parked and it's kind of frustrating. I've started successful companies and I know that domain name pursuit only to search for a simple keyword and find out it's taken. Domains sort of came about in the early 90s, mid-90s, and really proliferated throughout the 90s and through the 2000s till today. Some of the best domain names are already taken. Particularly for the 4-letter, the 5-letter domain names. It can be frustrating and I understand your frustration.
