Let’s face it, we all need guidance at some point, whether it’s using a product, finding our way through a treacherous landscape, or assembling a new Scandinavian bookshelf that seems to be missing one cog.
Is the .GUIDE domain extension right for me?
With .guide, you get a domain name space specifically for instruction, guidance or assurance, making it easy to connect online maps and guides, how-to guides and where to buy extra screws for your bookshelf with the users who need them. It’s the perfect top-level domain for any guide, creating a cross-industry hub for all of life’s problems, big and small.
The domain guide supports Latin characters
Registration and renewal of guide domain costs 36.50 $ for 1 year and the domain can be registered for not more than 5 year.
The minimum number of characters in the domain is 3, and the maximum is 63.
Most often as a domain name take the name of the company and here it is important uniqueness. You’re in luck if you pick up both the name of the company and the domain at the same time. In that case, immediately check the options that come to your mind. It is important to check whether there are already companies with a similar or similar name. Because if there is already a large company with a similar name, which has a long time – you will be very difficult to overtake it in search results. Also, you can be confused with a competitor and you will lose some traffic.
A domain name in the guide zone should be easy to remember and write. For example, imagine if you dictate over the phone slozhnoe-nazwanie .guide. There are several complications in such a domain: it is a hyphen, it is a transliteration of the letter g, which can be written as zh, zsh, zch and so on. Therefore, it would be better if the domain will not have hyphens, numbers and difficult to pronounce parts.
Despite the fact that in the domain zone guide there is an opportunity to use 63 symbols in the domain name – we do not recommend it. As a rule, the shorter the domain, the better and easier it is to remember. But too short a domain can also be difficult to remember, for example, if you use an acronym or abbreviation of the name, in most cases we do not recommend this .
If you have registered a domain only in the guide zone – then check the same name in related domains. For example, for a company that operates in Kiev, in addition to registering domain kiev.ua, you can also register domains com.ua and org.ua. Otherwise, you may find yourself in a situation where you decide to expand your business – and competitors take your name in other domain zones. It’s better to get ahead of them.
