A major tip for domain name selection is keeping it short and related to the service your business offersKollinz INC, kollinzinc.com
If your preferred domain name is already being used by another organisation, try different variations. For instance, a cocoa company in Nigeria called Green Cocoa Nigeria could have variations like greencocoa.com, greencocoanigeria.com, greencocoang.com, greencocoanig.com, greencocoa.org, greencocoa.com.ng etc. Once you are done with the domain name reservation for your business, move to Step 2.
