The domain name should be illuminating and not more than 2 or 3 words. The domain name should not contain any space between the words because it is not easy to remember such types of domain names. For a user for example “dmbeginner.com” is my domain name if it contains space then it looks to appear as “dmbeginner.com”. Avoid spacing because its view is different and does not appear effective and spacing is not allowed in the domain names. After selection, the domain name now turns to domain extension and there are many extension possibilities such as .com, .in, .org, etc. but the most preferred TLD is .com.
