  • Should Domain Name be the Same as the Business Name?

Hi Terri,

I have a quick question. I am starting up my business again after 6 years or so and I am in the process of getting a web site. Unfortunately another designer has taken my domain name. Because of that, I am re-thinking the name of my business and considering all options. I feel that having my name in the business is important, as that is how people will remember me but I want your opinion. I am hoping to have new logo and stationary done before the next Designers Success Circle call, so can you answer this question?

Thank you!

Linda Supron

A. Dear Linda,

It is absolutely a great idea to use your name in the name of your business. You want people to be able to easily find you on the web. What better way than to use your name?

Having said that, there are many ways to use your name in a business names. Linda Supron Interior Design, Linda Supron Design, Linda Supron and Associates, Supron Design Group and on and on.

I would suggest a few days of brainstorming a big list to choose from, and then see which of those are available as a domain name. Try for a .com name rather than the other versions because it is the most widely recognized and used.

Out of that batch of names, choose the one that feels like the most authentic description of you, after all, this is the beginning of your personal brand.

Beauty and Success,

Terri
