Mastering Domain Name Selection: A Guide for Kiwi Businesses

Joomla Marketing | Wordpress Agency Nz | Joomla Seo Nz

Choosing the right domain name is a critical step in establishing an online presence. It’s your digital address where users will visit to learn more about your products or services. Here are some top tips to help you select the perfect domain name.

1. Prioritise .com or

While there are many new domain name extensions available, we recommend sticking to the .com or extensions. They are the most established and reliable, and most users will automatically type “.com” or “” at the end of every domain without thinking about it.

2. Incorporate Keywords

Keywords play an important role in a domain name. They tell search engines what your site is about. Including keywords in your domain name can help you rank higher in Google. However, it can be tricky to find a good domain with your target keywords that’s not already taken. Be creative and combine your keywords with other words to make your domain stand out.

3. Keep It Short and Sweet

We recommend keeping your domain name under 15 characters. Longer domains are harder for your users to remember and are more prone to typos.

4. Make It Memorable

A memorable domain name is easy to remember and type. This is important because it will make it easier for people to find your website. Try to choose a domain name that is catchy, easy to spell, and reflects your brand identity.

5. Ensure It’s Unique

Your domain name should be unique and not already in use by another website. This will help you avoid confusion and ensure that your website is easy to find. Use tools like the WHOIS Lookup to check the availability of your desired domain name.

6. Make It Relevant

A relevant domain name is related to your business or website. This is important because it will help people understand what your website is about and why they should visit it. Try to choose a domain name that reflects your business’s products, services, or values.

7. Avoid Hyphens

Hyphenated domains can be seen as spammy and are prone to typos. It’s best to avoid them if possible.

8. Do Your Research

Before you register a domain name, make sure there isn’t already a registered business using the same name. You can use tools like the WHOIS Lookup to see if a domain is already taken.

Key to remember!

Choosing the right domain name is an important decision that can impact your website’s success. Keep these tips in mind to select a domain name that is memorable, brandable, and beneficial for SEO.

We are running a Joomla website that was several versions down-level, our commercial server service had an issue during a conversion. and we were unable to get into the back-end of our site. Several 'Joomla experts' later it still wasn't fixed. We ran across Revibe Digital and Brett during a Google search and Brett told us he could help us. Brett was true to his word and our website was up and running again. We were amazed at how quickly he fixed the site, it's not easy when you are a half a world away to coordinate passwords and others parameters. Brett also treated us like we were family when it came to the billing for his work. I was blown away at how reasonable his charges were. If you are looking for an extremely competent Software Engineer that knows his product line then look no further. I wholeheartedly recommend you contact Brett at Revibe Digital no matter where in the world you reside. Thank you very much Brett.

Great work! We hired Revibe to finish up a Joomla project begun by another firm that was not going well. With a minimum of direction, they jumped in right away and took care of all outstanding tasks, exactly as we asked for. It was quite a thrill to watch a firm move so quickly and understand what was needed with only two emails of explanation. In addition, pricing was very fair. Our only regret is that we didn't start with Revibe to begin with. Highly recommended!

I am very impressed with Brett Ransley of Embed Limited. His knowledge is excellent and he is happy to impart his knowledge. He is friendly, very helpful and very professional. I made a commercial decision to leave a long association with our previous I.T. service provider and move over to Embed Limited. I am also impressed with the energy Brett brings and the value that he adds to our business. I am very happy and I have no hesitation at all to recommend Embed Limited.
