When looking for a Web host, most people do not know what to look for and how much they should pay. Of course, the price one pays will depend on their needs. However, when knowing what one wants, they should not overpay for a quality Web host.

Uptime is critically important to those interested in publishing a website. Uptime refers to how long the site stays live without any interruptions. No one would ever wish to pay for hosting only to discover the site goes off-line. For a commercial website, this can be disastrous because visitors (aka customers) would not be able to land on it and make purchases. So, the hosts do have to offer a guarantee.

Choosing an awesome domain name is not difficult, the problem lies in having to choose multiple awesome domain names until an individual finds one that is available to register or for sale at an affordable price. Speculators have been buying domain names for years, holding on to or using clever, easy to remember .com names.
Do I Need a Dot Com Name?
Yes, anyone who will depend on traffic to make money online should buy a .com name if he or she can find one that meets the criteria for an awesome domain name. Despite a number of other domain extensions, like .net and .biz, the public is still most familiar with .com.
Business owners who buy a .net domain name may lose traffic to competitors with the same domain name, who are using the .com extension. The exception would be anyone who does business primary in another country besides the United States.
These individuals would need a country specific domain extension, such as .ca for Canadian businesses. Non-profit organizations can use the .org extension for legitimacy even though there are no specific requirements for registering a .org domain name.
What Makes An Awesome Domain Name?
A domain name that is easy to spell is awesome. Avoid commonly misspelled words, if someone has a profitable online business with a hard to spell domain name, other people will register domains with the misspellings just to take advantage of the traffic.
Avoid hyphens in domain names for the same reason; most people forget to include them and end up on competitor’s websites.
Awesome domain names are easy to remember. Every online business owner should take advantage of word-of-mouth traffic. It’s difficult to find a .com name that is easy to remember but they are a few awesome domain names left with .net. .biz, .info and .us extensions.
Shorter domain names are easier to remember than long domain names. Up to 63 characters are allowed in domain names but few people will remember a lengthy domain name, no matter how catchy a name a person registers.
Anyone buying a domain name should say the name aloud to make sure it sounds as good spoken as it looks on paper. Always write the domain name down exactly as it would appear in web browsers and search engines, with no spaces between the letters.
Companies have bought domain names only to find that the letter s followed by a word beginning with ex gives potential visitors the wrong impression.
Using Your Business Name
Businesses that have short business names that indicates what type of business they engage in have a built-in in domain name, unless it is already registered. Businesses that have difficult to spell names should use New Mexico plumbers, or a variation instead of their actual business name.
Business owners will lose their valuable backlinks and a great deal of their website traffic if they change domain names after establishing an online business. It is better to take the time to find an awesome domain name from the start, and then register as many extensions as possible.
Extra extensions make great blogs or landing pages, and they keep competitors from taking advantage of a successful business by registering the same domain name with a different extension.
