The Best Domain Names Are the Water Front Property of the Internet -

The best domain names are:

  • Short
  • Meaningful
  • Easy to spell
  • Easy to remember
  • Easy to say and understand when heard

The best domain names fall into a few categories:

  • Single Word Domain Names - the best, but hard to find. is an example.

  • 3-letter and Shorter Domain Names - shorter is better, but they may not be meaningful. is an example.

  • Two-Word Meaningful Domain Names - while not short and simple, if they are definitive, they may still be good. is an example.

Dot Com (.com) and Top Level Domain Extensions

You are no longer restricted to .com names. There are now a number of good domain name extensions, such as .info, .biz, .bz, .name and others. A good domain name in any extension, is better than a weak domain name in .com.

However, if the names are the same, .com domain names can still have a market value of 10 times other extensions and in some cases 100 times. The reason for this is many people still have their web browsers set to default to the .com version of a name. So, if a person types in "calendar", the web browser will go to "". If you have a .com name that people guess at, this can be worth a good amount.
