Should I add my brand name to my domain?

Yes! Thanks to this, it will be easier for recipients to associate a given product with the brand, which is also directly related to its recognition.  

However, it is worth paying attention to what the company name looks like. A domain containing adjectives, e.g. excellent or best, will have limited visibility in Google search due to the presence of rankings using exactly the same words.

It is important that the domain is easy to remember and pronounce!

SHOPPING PERSONALITY

How long should a domain be?

A shorter domain will certainly be easier to remember. It is a natural process to be able to remember short phrases rather than long sentences. However, you should not overdo it by shortening the domain to such an extent that it will no longer be associated with the brand name and profile.  

Which extension should I choose?

The most frequently chosen extensions of Polish brands are primarily .pl, so it is worth choosing this one, especially if the majority of customers are Poles. What's more, this extension inspires greater trust than endings associated with other countries.  

Another commonly used extension is .com. It is mainly chosen for global activities.

What to do if the selected domain is already taken?

There are two options for resolving this situation. First of all, you can change the extension. If the .pl extension is used, it is worth trying .com.pl, .com or .eu.  

The second option is to change the domain. A small exchange of words that fall within the company's activities will be the best choice. However, it should be borne in mind that these words must be associated with the company's services or products.
