Before we get into that, let us first look at the real issue at hand: the availability of desirable domain names or their lack thereof.

“That domain name is already taken!”

You can relate to this, right? You begin the search for that perfect domain name but quickly hit a roadblock because of one of these scenarios:

The domain name you want is already in use by someone else

Neither of these scenarios is helpful for an eCommerce business just starting out.

What to do if your perfect domain name is taken

It is common practice to make a compromise to get the domain name that is closest to the original domain name you had wanted. For example:

  • Add a filler word such as “the,” “now,” “app,” “hub,” etc. (e.g. theyogamerch.com)
  • Add a hyphen (e.g. yoga-merch.com)
  • Add a number (e.g. yogamerch7.com)

None of these strategies are effective solutions.

Don’t settle for an eCommerce domain name that is less meaningful and harder to remember.

The best eCommerce domain names reflect your offerings at a glance.

 

They are short and easy to type and remember. They add credibility to your venture — and trust is critical if you want customers to transact on your eCommerce website.
