What should you consider when picking a domain name?
The best domain names are often the simple ones -- short, memorable, clever, and easy to spell and pronounce. Nevertheless, you must weigh the sometimes competing concerns of a Web-friendly name with the importance of obtaining trademark protection for the name you choose.

There are several items to consider and everyone has their own theories on domain name selection. Here are a few items that we think are crucial in choosing a domain name:

-Length of name: Never more that 20 characters.
-Try to use .com extension when available
-Use of numbers or hyphens is not preferred
-Incorporating keywords is helpful for obtaining high search engine ranking.
-Choose a non-trademarked name.
