If you are completely beginner in micro niche blogging, it is very important to know the criteria that should be consider during purchase a domain name for micro blog. I will try my best to provide a clear concept so that you may able to select your domain name easily for your micro blog.
What is domain name for micro niche blog?
Yes, you should know first that what domain name is? If you want to start a micro niche blog or any other website you should need two important products – domain name and reliable hosting.
I don’t want to define the term domain or hosting, rather I prefer to simplify these term in this way – suppose you have a micro blog and publish your daily content, you should reach your content to your reader and again reader should find it. For that you should provide an address or link so that your reader can find your article easily.
So, actually a domain name is the blog address, which remain always live on internet and reader will reach your blog by searching that blog address or name.
If I want to simplify the term hosting, it is a store house of your blog files. You blog should have some file where all the data are stored. When your reader go with your blog address, then it request to hosting to show that particular data to your reader. If I again want to simplify this term, hosting is like a memory card where you store all of your files.
Hope you got a basic ideas about domain name and hosting of your micro niche blog.
How the domain name looks like?
If I provide you an example then it will be easy to understand for you. Simple a domain name is like –
There are four main parts on that domain name. They are –
- https (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)
- www (world wide web)
- bloggingguideline (name of micro niche blog)
- dot com (domain extension)
I am going to provide you a short description of these parts of a micro niche domain name so that you may understand the basic of the domain name.
https – It’s mean Hypertext Transfer Protocol that works during data transfer from server and responsible to keep the data safe. If it doesn’t work properly then it will be http which means your data is not safe.
www – It’s means world Wide Web. If you want you may use it during installation of your micro niche blog on wordpress, if you don’t like you may avoid it. If you notice in my blog, I didn’t use www, but may other micro blog usually used it. There are no effects or no security issue on using www. So, it’s depend on you whether you use it or nor.
Bloggingguideline – This is the main part and it’s your micro blog’s name. It’s may be according on your name or according on your micro niche’s name. Here in bloggingguideline.com represent the best guides for blogging for beginner, this name is little related to my niche.
But if you unable to find a domain name related to your niche, then you may choose your domain according your name like yourname’sblog. I recommended you to select this name according to your micro blogging niche. It will help you a little to rank on Google (though there are several factors that works for rank on Google).
“You should keep in mind if you find your desire domain name, take it immediately. If you left this name, others will take and start a blog before you start.”
Com – This is called the generic top level domain extension. It is always recommended to use dot com extension for a micro niche blog. But don’t worry if you unable to find this dot com extension for your blog.
It’s the human phycology that they always prefer a dot com domain. Don’t think, you will get extra benefit from dot com domain. All extension are same but you should use the generic top level domain like – dot com, dot net, dot org or dot info.
Hope you got a little idea on domain name. And I think that’s enough for you as you are not going to be expert on this subject. You are going to be a micro niche blogger.
