    It had better be extremely targeted and directly to the point if you are going to use that many letters. That is definitely in the territory of too long but it is is something such as thisiswhyimbroke.com vs something like car.com, it is going to be much easier to remember the shorter domain name. This said, short domain names cost much more to buy as pretty much all short (4ish or less letters) domain names are owned by someone already. If you know what you are targeting and it makes sense to have a longer domain, you have a much higher probability of finding it currently unowned. Good luck in your search!

    Mostly people do not type such big domain names if they are searching for something, make it compact yet informative.

    The post was started in 2016.
    I am guessing they already registered the domain 4 years back...
    Even the last comment, above yours, is an year old...

    An ideal domain name consists of 6 to 14 characters. So personally I think it is too long.

    if the domain's name is catchy, 20 letters are fine, but if that's something hard to say/hard to spell, users won't remember where they were, even if they want to return by typing in google first letters of your site.

    I think it's fine as long as it really serves your goals with that matter entirely and absolutely in every possible way, you can make it much much more friendly if really needed. Try for future use only shortest possible version for remembering.

    I think it's depend on your domain name, if there are keyword on your domain, so, it's still good

    The OP has not been seen on DP since 29 December 2016. The OP asked a QUESTION and APPARENTLY it was answered to HIS satisfaction OVER three years ago.

    That means that ALL of the recent ANSWERS to his QUESTION are at best superflous, at worst SPAM.

    Oh what?

    See your doc please.

    I know what it means. But whats wrong in replying after some (extended) period of inactivity? Nothing.
    Someone asks question, and - for some years - there is no reply, than - after say 3-4 years, reply appears. In this case, to respect your rule, mod's only option is to ban for necroposting. Its total absurd. What worries me is that I see more and more use of this weird rule.

    @MagdaS
    You are the one who needs a doc.
    A person asked a question 4 years back, and left.
    You arrived on the spot 4 years later, and started talking to the person, "imagining" that the person is still standing there!!! LOL
    And it also "worries you" that someone pointed out that the original person has already left, so no point talking!!! LMAO
    I understand you want to increase your post count and be able to post links.
    But picking an argument is not the way to do that.
    You might soon get banned from the forum.
    This is not facebook where you can troll anyone and anything.
    This is a forum with mods very strict about trolls and spammers.

    There is no number of letters that makes the domain too long. A three word name such as FreeCreditReport.com would be worth a fortune even though it has 16 letters and is 3 words.

    So, how long is too long for a domain? Any domain that is longer than 17 characters or more than 3 dictionary words is way too long.
