It's got to roll off the tongue effortlessly in order to be memorable. It doesn't even have to be short. Let's say your business name was California Advanced Technology. Something short would be Caladtech.com but that doesn't flow very well.
JakeJ wrote:Rule 2: It has to be related to your business. Let's say you manage to snag the domain table.com. It's short and memorable, but it doesn't fit with California Advanced Technology.
JakeJ wrote:Rule 3: It can't be a name too close to another well known brand. You couldn't use something that sounded like you were affiliated with Cal Tech.
JakeJ wrote:Rule 4: Know your purpose. Some of the rules above can be bent depending on the purpose of your site. If your site is almost always going to be reached through links, it probably doesn't have to be too memorable; but it shouldn't be cryptic either. In some cases, you can pick the site name first and then name the business; especially if the business is the site.
