How to Choose a Domain Name
- Use your business name if it is available and not too long. For example, we found that fusedcreativecrew.com is longer than desired, so we decided to go with fusedcrew.com for our domain. However, we purchased the longer domain as well to make sure no one else could.
- When your desired domain name is not available, get creative. Consider adding short, relevant words to your business name. For example: fusedtulsa.com, fusedok.com or getfused.com.
How to Register Your Domain Name
We have found that it is best to register your domain with the same company that will host your website. When multiple companies are used, it often ends in a great, big headache.
We recommend Bluehost for hosting and domain name registration. The Bluehost system will walk you through the entire process of getting a hosting account and reserving your domain name.
