3. Choosing a Domain Name

Okay choosing a domain name may be a pain. Thatís why Iím going to help you out in this tutorial. Remember, many may prefer domain names that are short but they are not necessarily better. Itís true you donít want a domain name thatís extremely long but you donít want it to be so short that nobody can remember it (unless you own a url forwarding service). There are many combinations of words you can use. I highly suggest checking a domain name generator. They can be very useful, you enter a keyword and it displays possible combinations with other words and tells you if theyíre available. For this I suggest Iíve used their service many times and I am very happy with them.
