In search of a domain name
Finding a domain name is like finding name for your own new born baby. Your child is going to live with that name for the rest of his/her life. That is why finding a right name is very important. I still remember I got a friend in secondary school by the name "建仁". Nothing wrong with the meaning, but the 2 words sound like "贱人" (Cheap person). I heard that he went to the lawyer firm to change his name on the day he reaches 21 years old.
A domain name is a branding. A name that you will be using for marketing. A name that people will recognize you as. Which is why you should try to make your domain name relevant to the things you are doing or at least think of a catchy name.
A domain name should be easy to pronounce, easy to spell and hard to misspell. And most importantly, it should be easy to remember.
That is where the challenge is. I couldn’t think of any name that matches the above requirements. I’m not really a creative person and I'm not very good with English words to come out with something catchy. All the names that I come out with so far are already taken. Perhaps I’m too late.
Actually, I thought of an interesting domain name today morning. But that domain name for the .com version has already been taken up. It was registered by some company that buy domain name to sell at a higher price. I don’t think I’ll want to waste my money buying from them.
But that domain name for .sg is still available. Am wondering…. Should I register the .sg domain name? Will there be a branding issue in the future? Especially when the .com version has been taken up.
How? Should I go ahead and register the .sg version? Or crack my head further for a better domain name? Any suggestions?
