What domain name is the best?

    Hi

    I've created a new blog on blogspot platform, however, I want to buy a domain name to get started in my journey of emarketing (working with adsense).


    the domain name I choose for my blog consists of three words (I looked around in goddady for alternative names that are good and short but unfortunately all the domain names are already taken in my niche and they are too expensive). I tried to form a name from the first letter of the words but I failed too, the abbreviation is already taken and very expensive.


    the problem is that the name I choose is pretty long, it consists of three words of 28 letters, it's kinda long but the name is memorable and make sense.


    only the problem is with future project like selling t-shirt (I can't print t-shirt with long name) and the second problem is with the email (it doesn't look like professional with the long name).



    any suggestions or ideas before I buy a domain


    I hope my issue is clear to you so that you can help me

    thank you in advance

    28 letters are too much. The fewer the letters, the easier it is for customers to remember the website. Also people want convenience. The words might be catchy, but who wants to type that much letters to reach the website? Even typing it on a search engine will be inconvenient.

    You'd be better off with something like colorteez.com (last time I checked it was available) than with a 28 letter long domain name.

    The domain name suggestion by @qwikad.com sounds catchy. If you haven't registered it already, you should consider doing it.

    I usually use instantdomainsearch .com to check whether the .com is taken or not. You can use it too to check your domain first.

    Using a domain name search site is a good idea to help you in your search.

    You can also take your most desired name (even if it's already taken) and add a single letter or an underscore + letter to that name. An example is: yourdesiredname(a) or yourdesiredname(_a).

    That domain name most likely won't be remembered exactly but it should show up in the SERPs.

    You'll figure it out, that's too long to take. Don't get stuck on keywords, establish a unique brand name instead. :)

    I read that a shorter URL will rank higher. My long URL http://kingsfordwaterbay.pro is not ranking anywhere because of the length...

    Search theme based words. Make a combination of them to prepare a list. Then go to any hosting provider site and try to find if similar domains available or not. It is better to keep the name short so that people can easily find it.

    It is unprofessional, but it may work, for the most part, people may confuse the
    domain with colortees.com, you know how forgetful visitors can be. I would never
    add a slang word as part of my domain, not if i was looking for true branding....

    If he thinks a high quality name is expensive, what til he spents hours upon
    hours writing content, or even buying content, then more money on promotions
    FB/Google/SEO, etc...I can only imagine that shirts/tshirts is very competitive,
    and it could be very expensive just trying to break into tshirt market....

    I read a case study on a shopify store that was trying to break in, he spent
    100s or even 1000s of dollars, and never had any amount of success, however,
    everyone is different, maybe you have a skill he did not have, who knows...

    false! that is simply not true. I have seen some crazy ass domains
    rank and bank, and you are left scratching your head wondering how.

    I have not looked at your entire profile, however, one thing is for
    sure, you only have 17 results in google, in other words, you have
    no content, and I would bet your seo maybe bad also, not sure...

    In my opinion, you are not working on your site....
    you are sitting back, eatting chips, watching TV, and
    you are expecting your site to take off with no effort...

    I have to agree with this. The search engines will not punish you because of the length of your domain name. When I look at your site I see only marketing content (trying to sell real estate). I don't see any content that would give value to the visitor.

    Your site won't get traffic if you don't give value.

    Domains with two syllables seem to resonate well with consumers.

    E.g. Ebay.com, Google.com, Yahoo.com, PayPal.com, DoneSmart.com the list goes on...
