Website names play a critical role in the ebb and flow of traffic you receive. The more obscure your web address, the less of a chance you have of attracting steady visitors. Regardless of whether you use your site as an informational resource or as a forum for e-commerce transactions, your address can make or break your success.

Don't Wait Around for Website Names

If your first-choice website names are taken, I encourage you to purchase your second or third choices rather than waiting for your preferred URL to be released. In the meantime you can build your business on another address and eventually transfer the domain should your first-choice domain be released. If you find yourself settling on a less than perfect domain, there are still other options you have for boosting traffic.
