    Best Domain Names for 2014?

     
    Today, February 4th, the first of 1,000 gTLDs will become available and go into use. Among these will be gTLDs that use Arabic, Chinese and Russian characters. The application fee to submit a request was $185,000, and most were made by companies who want to protect their trademark. If you are in the market for a great domain name and having a custom extension at that price is a little steep for you, you should be happy to know that .com domains are still considered the industry standard and most desired. Better yet, there are still thousands upon thousands that are available for sale without breaking your advertising budget.

    While many believe that the best .com domain names have been taken, you can still get your hands on one for less than market value. While there are many domainers holding on to top domain names and holding out for premium dollar, sites like BestPremiumNames.com lists hundreds of .com names relating to business, sports, people, business, health, home and pets at affordable prices.

    When searching for a domain name to represent your brand online, you want something memorable that is made up of the simple key words that people search on. The best domain names are easy to remember and attract lots of traffic. Finding the right domain name for your business can make all the difference between floundering in obscurity and being found and prospering. Here are a few domain names that I recently found listed on premiumdomainnames.com that would be perfect for online and/or local businesses.

    BacklinkWildFire.com
    BostonSummerJobs.com
    CouponStork.com
    FiveStarTutorials.com
    InstantCoverLetter.com
    LeatherBookRepair.com
    PoetryLoft.com

    Although the market value is listed for each domain name, I have found from personal experience that bids lower than the market value are often accepted. If you see a domain name that you believe will benefit your business, it is certainly worthwhile to place a bid!

    Having a memorable online brand is a great way to attract more customers and clients to your business! The best domain name for 2014 is still a memorable .com that will bring more business to your business.
