A domain name is what a person enters in their Internet browser’s address bar to access a website. In our case, this is hover.com:

Since millions of domain names have already been registered, it can be difficult finding a good one that is still available. Whatever you do, don’t add on unnecessary words or use weird spelling just to find an available domain. People need to be able to remember your domain name, so you should aim for something that’s short, easy to spell and catchy. Additionally, your domain will typically be a person’s first impression of your website, so you want something that will make them confident that they will find trustworthy content on your site.

If you can’t find a good domain, try using a different Top-Level Domain (TLD). This is the last part of your domain, which is most often .COM. There are hundreds to choose from, and some may even be a better fit for your website. If your location is important, you could use your country’s TLD (e.g. .CA for Canada or .UK for the United Kingdom). There are also TLDs for nearly every niche, ranging from .PHOTOGRAPHY to .PIZZA to .HORSE. To see all of them, check out Hover’s list of TLDs.

  • Unlimited domain forwarding
