Choosing a Domain Name

  • Dear DNForum.com user,

    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;

    Best DNForum.com

Its a good idea to do, but its just one factor amongst many.

If you choose a long tail search centric domain name, you will probably loose memorability from your users. That wont be an issue if you do not expect to get repeat customers but only drive customers to a single sale website. So in the end it comes down to your intended use. Hard to give you recommendations without knowing that.

Yes Definitely you ought to check for the availability of domain name. These days its hard to get a domain name of choice. But if you want a domain name which is firstly a name of your choice, is cheap and secure at the same time then you can go for .ooo domain name. Get this global domain name with many benefits.

Lol are you serious?! An ooo domain would be as appalling, even moreso, than the plethora of rapidly failing new extensions already around. Expect to see half of them gone within the next couple of years. People my advice is AVOID any extension not established and especially any that are just being marketed now. The only people you are going to make rich are the registrars and their resellers.
