If you are starting a business, what is the first thing you do, I mean, first thing after a concept, business plan, etc? Do you rent office or retail space? Start stocking up inventory? Or do you decide on a name? I think most of us start with a name. What we’ve found is often missing is verifying that the domain name is available. Anymore, as important as registering your business, so is purchasing the domain name.
It is so important, I would advice any of the customers I consult with to purchase the domain name before they register their business name. Once publicly registered, others can swoop in and by the domain out from under you.
Still, why is this so important? Easy. We live in an age, like or not, where virtually EVERYTHING starts online. 97% of research for practically everything begins online. Wouldn’t you hate to be sending business to a competitor? Or have a business name that does not match your domain name?
