8 Mistakes To Avoid When Buying Your Domain..Buying that perfect domain for a new project is always exciting. The idea always seems so perfect and so fun. But just like buying a house or used car, you shouldn’t let your excitement blind you to some genuine risks...
I would like to add #9, 10 and 11 -
#9 - Do your research on related keywords first
Sure you can buy a domain name that does not contain or in any way reference the theme of your site but be prepared to invest a lot of time marketing and/or expense of advertising to get the word out.
#10 - Use a reputable site to conduct your search for domain name availability
Some domain name search sites monitor what is being searched for and snap up domains so they can try and sell it to you for a higher price.
#11 - Be ready to buy
Keeping my #10 point in mind, be ready to buy the domain name you want if it is available before someone else snaps it up.
