These are some of the most common domain names used on a daily basis and will be the most likely to achieve good visibility on most European search engines
Dedicated to companies who promote themselves on social media websites
Perfect for telecommunications businesses
If you want to gain maximum coverage in a specific European country try a domain name aimed at that market Nothing stops you from having multiple domains leading to the same website for example You are a UK business but you sell primarily to Poland. have a .co.uk as well as a .pl domain ensuring maximum penetration of both markets
One big mistake in web design is in choosing the wrong domain name. Do not choose a domain name until you have done some initial planning. Avoid choosing a domain name that appeals to you because it is cute or because it contains your name
The domain name should match the keywords of your site. What is the main thing you want to do with your site? Are you selling something or offering a service? If so, then choose keywords based on your product or service. If you are in Dublin and offering a local landscaping service try to go for http://www.dublinlandscapes.ie this will ensure customers that use an Internet search for Landscape Gardeners in Dublin will find you, if however you try http://www.billbloggsservices.com they are far less likely to find you when searching the Internet
If you are selling shoes choose keywords based on the type of shoes you are selling. Then pick a domain name that matches the keywords of your site. If your keywords are about basketball and baseball shoes then your domain should relate directly to basketball and baseball shoes. If you are fortunate enough to obtain the domain name that is exactly the name of your product you will do really well. For instance http://www.nike.com would be the best domain name that anyone could have in selling Nike shoes
Don't settle for the name http://www.sams-shoe-shack.com Get a domain name that is more specific. Buy a domain name that contains something about your product or service. Avoid hyphenated domain names if possible. It is possible to fix a website with the wrong domain name but if you spend too much time with the wrong one it will become difficult to change
A Simple .co.uk Domain name will cost as little as 20.00 per year ( minimum 2 year contract) and a .com Domain will be slightly more at about 25.00 per year. Prices can vary widely upon your exact requirements with some specialised domains costing from 50.00 to 80.00 per year At Blade Web Design we can help you to select the right Domain name for your business, arrange its registration and coordinate a smooth link up to your new website by selecting the correct name servers that will direct your new Domain to the Hosting server where your website is located.

It may be worth considering purchasing several versions of the same name, how frustrating would it be if you launched your new business bloggs.co.uk only to find another business then buys bloggs.com and cashes in on your success
Please note some domain names are subject to government restrictions for example an Irish or .IE domain states the following:
The .IE domain name space is restricted to individuals with a registered Irish address, or to registered Incorporated Irish organizations All applicants applying for a .ie domain name who are not situated in the 32 counties of Ireland, must demonstrate a Real and Substantive Connection with Ireland with the exception of those applying with a registered Community Trademark. Examples of acceptable documentation demonstrating substantial trade or commercial activity within Ireland are as follows Copies of invoices showing trade to or from Ireland High-quality brochures A signed letter on headed paper from a bank manager, firm of chartered accountants, registered auditors, tax consultants where the tax adviser identification number is displayed, or solicitor confirming the applicants trade with Ireland
