URLs and Domain Names: Hidden Pitfalls, Solutions, and Options
Domain names can be more complicated than many of us realize. Diana will discuss and demonstrate some important issues around the choice of domain names for both business and for personal use. Issues to be covered include:
- The range of "top level domains" available and potential issues that come with them.
- The potential relationship between domain names and SEO.
- Potential pitfalls in the choice of a domain name will be discussed (sometimes hilariously), illustrated by websites with ill-chosen domain names, some of which still exist.
- The use of more than one domain name.
Key Learning #1: An understanding of the domain name options available to them (more than most people realize).
Key Learning #2: An awareness of the relationship (or not) between domain names & SEO.
Key Learning #3: Cautions about potential pitfalls in the choice of domain names.
