In this case, it is more effective to choose the brand name, keywords, simple abbreviations or abbreviations as the domain. This way you will be able to increase the awareness of the company, take a leading position in the search row.

- Name of the company or brand
If you are promoting a specific product or creating a company website, it is easier and more rational to use the name of the company or product, brand as the domain. This will help to increase the awareness of the promoted product, take a leading position in the search for target queries.

However, the company name is not always suitable as a domain name. Let's say you are still a little-known company whose name is not well known, what you do is not yet clear.
So, if the name of your company is far from the scope of the services provided, this may make it difficult to search.

For instance, if you repair cell phones, and you are called "Phoenix". This name does not have a semantic connection with the topic, it is already worth thinking about another domain that is more suitable for your field of activity.


- Keyword
A keyword in the domain will help users and search engines determine what your page is about. You can also use a mix of keywords to choose a more effective name. Most often, the choice stops at sites whose domain names have words suitable for the search.


However, you should not use all the keywords in the name of your site. Remember that the domain must be short enough to remember. easy to pronounce and type in the search. Domains that are too long are not popular with either search engines or users.

Let's say you are engaged in the sale of fuels and lubricants, however, using the abbreviation GSM, you can confuse users and the search engine, as it is more often associated with mobile communications. It is important that the address is perceived correctly.
