    Hi Alison, thanks for the video! The domain name I want is a premium so approx 2500$ to purchase. Does the price change if I trend it for a few days/weeks, will they know I’m watching it and increase the price? Thanks!

    Those scam name checker websites steal your business name!!! Do not use them! You need to check it by your government!

    Keywords can help in some cases with industry or niche identity, like ProBlogger, it connects that topic with your brand. But, it does not help with ranking, ever.

  24. Lili R on December 26, 2020 at 8:09 pm

    Thanks for your help 💚

    buy a domain , check if is available or check similar domains at

  26. Milton Welch on December 26, 2020 at 8:11 pm

    I’m new to this. If I buy a domain name because Godaddy says it’s expired and available, then I go on Google and see the same name a few times used by other people in the same business (Photography), what do I do? They probably don’t have websites, but the name is out there a few places, but not in the same area. I wish this wasn’t so confusing.

  27. Frank Meester on December 26, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    I had a client who asked me to help with creating a technical task for designers.
    Then I replied to him, what is your domain?
    He answered – I haven’t bought it yet.
    My answer was:
    Oh, man.
    It doesn’t work like this.
    It would be best if you created your name first because it impacts your design.
    He agreed and bought it.
    From the correct name, it depends a lot.
    I’m talking a lot about this on my channel.

  33. Gianfranco Calabretta on December 26, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    I found the right one: ✌🏽

  34. Ambient Soda on December 26, 2020 at 8:21 pm

    I kinda feel you want a domain name where the domain is neutral so typically .com is stereo typical historically, but I’ve see domains like .org and I that I think will take off as it’s easy to remember…

    Apart from a name which makes sense as you’ve said and the above I dont think matters…

  35. TAPSURE SUCCESS on December 26, 2020 at 8:25 pm

    buy ( from godaddy. A perfect domain name for food business , food mart, food companies. " " could be a perfect fresh brand name for any type of food business.
