Choosing the right Domain Name is considered “linguistic design” by many professionals, and the selection of a domain name/s is an important factor of the overall presentation and subject of your website. Your Domain Name will play an important role in regards to visitors searching, recalling, and referring your website.

Deciding on a good domain name requires a combination of strategy, creativeness and good linguistic design practice.

The Web is filled with great resources to assist and educate you on choosing a good Domain Name. Carry out a comprehensive search on Domain Names and utilise these articles and resources before deciding on the right Domain Name for your website.

Ideally, your domain name should be:

  • Short and easy to remember
  • Easy to pronounce
  • Easy to spell (avoid silent letters)
  • Not a violation of someone else’s trademark.

.co.nz or .com?

For New Zealand businesses .co.nz is the trusted extension. The .com extension, in most cases, is reserved for an international market primarily, but not limited to, the USA.

You may decide to register your Domain Name for both .co.nz and .com with a simple redirect setup for whichever your secondary Domain Name is which will default to your primary i.e. www.yourname.com forwards to www.yourname.co.nz

For those who have invested heavily in a particular phrase or branding concept consider registering as many extensions as possible to avoid others registering the same Domain with a different extension.  Other extensions to consider registering:

domain-names

  • .biz
  • .net
  • .net.nz
  • .org
  • .org.nz
  • .maori.nz
