Don’t just pick a name out of a hat when it comes to your website. Follow a few rules for web address success.
Once you’ve got your marketing strategy in order, and planned a design for your new website, the ever-important decision of choosing your domain name, or website address, is the next big step in online business.
This task was challenging enough when the internet was still young and full of plenty of .com’s for the picking. But it’s even harder now that a large proportion of all existing .coms have been bought.
So here are some tips for making the domain-buying process a little easier…
It’s competition time again at Midphase.
Last week Midphase launched its new range of domain names. And they’ve got your name written all over them. Literally.
Now .bike, .clothing, .venture, .holdings, .plumbing, .singles, and .guru have been released as alternatives to .com, .net and .us, it’s no longer difficult to find a domain name—also known as a web address or TLD—that suits your business perfectly.
Hundreds of people have already snapped up a new domain name that feels fine tuned to their business. Plumbers have registered their exact company name, followed by .plumbing, and designers have got their hands on a .clothing that is the mirror image of their brands.
So we thought we’d celebrate.
We want you to tell us which new domain name ending suits your business. And, because it’s not a party without presents, we’re offering a reward.

“I am .BIKE, what new domain are you? #Mpowered @Midphase”
Take a photo of yourself in a place that reflects your favorite domain name and add the text, “I am…[Insert your favorite new domain name] #Mpowered @Midphase.” If you’re a plumber then yours would say, “I am .plumbing. #Mpowered @Midphase” or if you’re in the market for a .bike, for example, take a snap of yourself on a bike or in a bike shop and tweet, “I am .bike #Mpowered @Midphase.” The more inventive the better!

At Midphase we say tomayto and tomarto. Our company has offices on both sides of the pond. The Utah guys are just waking up as the London team nears the end of the working day. We conduct meetings through Skype, and the Americans don’t get it when the Brits use words like jumper (that’s a sweater) and wellie (that’s a rubber boot).
It’s less than a week until a new range of web addresses explodes onto the internet.
The clock is counting down faster than the one in an episode of 24. It seems like only yesterday the newspapers broke the news that a whole new era of website addresses was being made available. Now there’s less than a week until the first new names are launched.
The advantages of .co web addresses for small businesses.
Have you got your business online yet? If not, you’re not alone. According to a national survey by Wakefield Research, a massive 45 percent of small business owners don’t have a presence on the Web. What’s more, the same study showed that 49 percent of the small business owners who did have a virtual home, were unhappy with their website address.
Actors, boutiques and design companies have already got their .la websites. Who’s next? Midphase hopes it’s The Hoff.
Los Angeles is the city of reinvention. It’s where Norma Jean became Marilyn Monroe and where Walter Willison became Bruce Willis. So it makes sense that the city was the first in line when it came to Web address rebranding.
Midphase takes a break from focusing on the future to take a walk along the virtual memory lane.
At Midphase, we strive to stay ahead of the game as far as the internet is concerned. Having said that, we think it’s important to remember your roots. So, here are our misty watercolour memories of the way the internet looked 10 years ago…
Sometimes registering a domain name can be a little bit frustrating as you rack your brain trying to come up with the perfect one; something that’s succinct, yet strong, appropriate, relevant and most of all not already taken!
This is a common inconvenience and, more than likely, nearly everyone who attempts to register a new domain is going to come up against some kind of disappointment in finding their ideal .com or .net has been snagged by someone else. Even more aggravating is noticing your ultimate domain name is tied to a rather ridiculous website.
So, before you start to get too stressed out just thinking about it, allow us to make your day with this little announcement:
You will soon have the opportunity to purchase an industry-specific domain extension from over 700 NEW domain extension possibilities! We’re talking about domains that end with .family, .web, .online, blog, .tech and more!
