EXTRA CREDIT: Domain Names

The domain name is one of the most important parts of a website. This is how people access your website and it is the first impression given about your website.

When choosing a domain name you must keep these things in mine:
1. Keep it simple. If your URL is something easy to remember, viewers can return to your site with no trouble at all!
2. Make it something catchy. If your domain is something catchy, it will stick in people’s minds and they will view it more often.
3. Keep it short. Similar to keeping it simple, you want to be able to have something that people will remember and find easily.
4. Make sure you get your point across. Don’t use a super off-the-wall domain that won’t express what you are trying to get across through your website.

Creating a domain can be fun and easy if you go about it the right way! I was extra simple with the domain for my website and just made it my name, you can easily do the same!
