    The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (EU) 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union. As we are based in Gibraltar which is part of the EU and we have customers all over the world we are obligated to follow the new regulation as of May 25, 2018.

    Accordingly, although we must request full contact information from each of you so our systems and webpage may continue to function we will restrict processing and data transfers as much as possible. When logged into DNForum.com we will display only your chosen handle and no other specific information unless requested by you. In order to request your specific information be revealed please go into your account settings and check the radio boxes next to the information. By default all information is private.

    To cover all aspects of GDPR we have published a new / updated agreement (which includes our terms and privacy policy) that will become effective on May 25, 2018. It may be found at: https://www.dnforum.com/help/terms/

    Onward and upwards;

Choose a short domain, with a maximum of 20 characters. Those who pass this extension may seem spam.
Make it easy to write and spell, think about when you have to give it to people, that they understand it the first time.
If possible and available, always choose .com domain extension as the first option.
Choose a domain that is easy to remember, that has to do with what you want to sell, to build a brand image around it (if you include a keyword from your niche, better).
Avoid including hyphens in the name of your domain.
Avoid capital letters and, if you intend to position yourself internationally, the ñ.
Try to avoid numbers.
Register the domain in the country where the company or activity is located.
Always consult with other people. Sometimes what we see clear as water others do not understand the same.

In addition on the easy to spell and write, also avoid same letters that follow each other to avoid confusion e.g NamesSearch.com because when typing the IP adress it is easy for people to type namesearch.com and lose on traffic when people give up and opt to search for a different website.

All of the above is true ... BUT,
- using keywords id domain name will not make it short,
- short means less than 5L, so it would be a one word keyword,
- the rest is all nice,

Make sure the domain name you choose fits good with your product. The product that you sell and the domain that you own should have certain level of similarity. It must resemble you r business, should be short, easy to type and remember.
