Why is a good website name important?
Your website is the storefront of your brand that is open 24/7. It’s represents everything your business has to offer and is likely the first point of contact with new customers.
A unique website name is your chance to make a high-quality first impression with potential and existing customers. It can set the tone for how customers conceptualize and engage with your business. Within a few moments, customers can decide whether your business is legitimate or of high quality – simply by reading its name.
What’s more, a memorable and effective website name can help to grow your business and find potential clients. One option to consider using keywords related to your business to have a better chance of ranking online.
What makes a good Website name?
The best website names are unique and memorable by nature, think Amazon.com or Google.com. Here are a few tips to help you craft an effective website name for your business and brand:
- Be authentic: Avoid naming your website based off a competitor, they will almost always out rank you.
- Avoid numbers: Numbers are harder to remember and can be confusing for users.
- Use .com: This TLD is the most popular and most remembered globally.
- Keep it short: 2 words max is the ideal, single word names are even better.
- Be creative: If you have a B2C business, creative website names like “Monday.com” can be memorable and effective.
How to Name your Website
Here are twenty unique website name ideas, in this section we’ll show you how we created them and how you can create your own.
#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like web, virtual, digital and platform. You can see that while these words can be related to websites, they also suggest that you can expect quality content and innovation. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
- Digital Corner
- Digital Scripture
- Write Post
- Beyond Space
- Virtual Reality
- Net Poet
- Online Workspace
#2) Shortlist your ideas
Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, carry out analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.
Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
- Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
- Is the name different from competitors?
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?
#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great website names, and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With your customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?
My customer feedback:
This name makes it instantly clear what the website is all about while it still maintains a bit of fun.
This name doesn’t reveal exactly what the website is all about but you instantly know it’s something related to web or digital media due to the “WWW”.
This name suggests a website run by a woman or a website that discusses girly topics/sells items women will be interested in.
This name conveys that the website definitely belongs to a writer.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great website names on your list, in case any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and domain name registration.

Your website name is not a place to describe your business or brand; you have the opportunity to do so on your “About Us” page. Instead, it’s your chance to name your brand – give it a label that covers all of your businesses and gives your brand a title under which to thrive.

There are countless brandable businesses and website names to buy on the market. They have already been conceived, created, and registered so that individuals can accept and use them as their own. If you get stuck trying to create a memorable and memorable name, buying a tradeable business or brand name is a great start.

Creating a unique name that distinguishes you from others is helpful, but only if people can understand it and recognize it as your brand. Combining words is not always the best way to be creative. It is best to avoid creating words that no one can find concerning your business.
