Important Criteria in Choosing Your Food Blog Domain Name
First things, first. You can get a FREE DOMAIN NAME with your web hosting sign-up for just under $4 per month – HERE.
A domain name is simply the address you use in your web browser. Our domain is “JoysThaiFood.com”. Domains can have extensions (TLD’s) like .com, .net, .org, and now some new ones like .guru, .academy, and scores more.
Choosing a domain name is an important step, but it is one you can probably accomplish in just an hour or maybe a couple of days. Don’t agonize over the name you choose for your blog, but do give it some thought.
Some Basic Considerations for Choosing a Thai Food Domain Name:
- choose a domain name that is short – under around 15 characters
- it should describe what your blog is about in just a couple of words
- don’t use dashes
- don’t use numbers
- use the .com TLD because everyone else is still using it
- make sure your domain name is available.
There was in the past some research to suggest that buying your domain name for more than one year means something in the Google search algorithms. The theory behind it is that Google will take the domain more seriously if it is registered for multiple years. I think there are many other considerations that are of much higher importance, but it probably wouldn’t hurt to register your domain name for at least three years if you’re going to dedicate yourself 100% to your new food blogging business.
