Domain registration – Do’s and don’ts
How to choose Top-Level Domain (TLD) for Domain registration？
The top-level domain is the highest-level domain name located in the root domain space. For Simple, the TLD is the last part of the domain name. E.g. mulbrand.com where “.com” is the top-level domain. In the early days of the Internet, these were the available domains:
Today, most TLDs are divided into the following types:
(1) Country and region top-level domain TLDs (ccTLDs)
Each country has its own TLD, called the country code TLD (ccTLD). Examples of ccTLDs are TLDs, such as Hong Kong’s .hk, .cn for China, or .us for the United States.
(2) Generic TLDs (gTLDs)
Generic TLDs (gTLDs) are basically all other domains, such as .com, .info, .net, .edu, .gov, and so on.
(3) Internet infrastructure configuration Infrastructure TLDs
The infrastructure TLD is similar to the .arpa TLD. Generally speaking, this type of TDL can be ignored directly, because domain names cannot be registered under .arpa, it is only used for infrastructure purposes.
Of course, .com is the simplest and most well-known TLD.
🔹 In terms of domains, most Hong Kong companies will use .com domain names. And .hk / .com.hk have been used by more and more people in recent years.
🔹 The main difference is that .com is more international and has higher awareness. And .hk is regional. If the business scope is mainly in Hong Kong, some people will choose .hk.
🔹 Among them, .hk also has 2 categories, including .hk and .com.hk to choose from. .hk can be registered in the name of an individual, and .com.hk needs to be registered in the name of a company. Fees and registration details can be found on the website of Hong Kong Domain Name Registration Co., Ltd.
🔹 The editor believes that both .com and .hk are common in Hong Kong because the public is more familiar with both.
How to choose a domain name / brand name for Domain Registration?
When you decide which host is suitable for hosting your website, you should consider which domain name you want to use for your website. Domain names are a convenient way to point people to specific locations on the Internet where you build your website. Domain names are usually used to resolve one or more IP addresses. Therefore, for Mul Brand, the domain name is mulbrand.com.
The domain name is a very important aspect of building a brand, so it requires some thinking. You want people to recognize you and find you when they look for you. This is why it is usually a good idea to have a short domain name. If it’s catchy, it certainly helps. Ideally, you also need a domain name that is easy to spell. If you have a company, you may want to use the company name as a domain name.
I believe everyone will be troubled when changing their name. Should I use the company name or something else? Generally we can proceed from these directions:
Of course, there are other different types of renaming methods, which are not exhaustive. These several commonly used methods have some points to pay attention to:
- The domain name is too long to remember
- The domain name or common words are too short, and most of them have already been registered
- Numbers are not easy to remember, more representative companies
- Try to use company abbreviations
- Available connection number “-“
- Or use company/brand name + region (.com.hk/.hk)
In fact, the above opinions are just for reference. I think the most important thing is to be representative, easy to remember, and short enough.
