Domain Name Registration

Your web site address, or domain name, is an important part of your Internet branding and Internet marketing strategy. Most people give the choice of a domain name little thought, and just register their company name or the closest domain name they can get to their company name. By doing this, they are missing some great Internet marketing opportunities. For entrepreneurs focusing on what you are selling instead of your company name might improve your chances of success.
