How to choose a domain name registration company in Pakistan.
If you want to have a website, you will start from choosing a domain name for it. Domain name is the center of your internet identity. What things you should keep in mind while choosing a domain name? let’s discuss these one by one.
Keep It Short
You can register a name up to 63 characters long, but remember that people will not remember long domain names, and if they do they can make mistakes in typing the domain name or the email addresses with long domain name. So try to register short domain names. Not a days there are very less chances that you will get an short English name for a .COM domain. So if you are based in Pakistan, you can go for a .com.pk name. There are very good short names available for domain registrations in Pakistan. With PKNIC (the authority that registers domain names for Pakistan) you can even find 3 charcter .com.pk domains as of today, January 2017.
Express your concern
There are many different extensions suffix (tld – top level domain) available that you can choose from. But keep in mind you should go for the one fits for the cause of your website. If you are making a website for an NGO hosting, you should go for .org domains. And if you want to make a website for information purpose you can go for . info extension. There are many different extensions available right now. For businesses, we recommend a .com suffix. It is the first suffix that almost all the internet surfers’ type. It is also the default suffix in all the internet browser softwares like Opera, Firefox, Mozilla and internet explorer from Microsoft. .com is also the oldest extension.
Avoid Trademarked Names
You should not register a trademark name, even it is available. And if a trademark domain name is still available there is a reason for it. The trademark owner can take back the domain name from you, any time and with a very little effort. So you should not go for a domain name of with the brand name of a multi.million.dollar.company.com.
Register your domain name now.
Domains names are being registered very fast. A lot of investors are registering domain names, and they will register any good domain name that they will not find. As of today domain names are much cheaper than before. You can get a name at an average for 8 USD. And if you talk about domain names Pakistan you will get the cheapest domain names, with control panel and everything.
Domain Names are Cheep, Register more than one suffix.
It is not a bad idea to register several domain extensions with the same name. If you have “yourname-name.com”, also register “yourname-name.net” so that no one else can register it future and try to play with your fame. Also if your company name is a long name like “web hosting company Pakistan”.com, you should go for a short version also say w-h-c-p.com.pk.
