Long Domain Names

September 23rd, 2010

A domain name should be as descriptive and un-mystical as possible.  It need not necessarily be prosaic, but it should definitely be straightforward.  Long domain names are easier to remember than paraphrased or partially abbreviated ones.  Catchy is sometimes nice if it is catchy enough, and the catchiness is readily identified with your business or organization. Catchy can be harmful if it leads to your competition or some other site.  It is better to be long winded and explicit than brief cryptic.
