Register all variants

Registering all variants of your domain name can obviously be useful. This way, you prevent one party from slandering the domain name or trying to hinder you in the SEO game. However, if you want to register all domain names with all extensions, this can be quite an investment. Per domain name, it can be seen as very beneficial, because for ~6 euros per year, most domain names are already registered.

Strange characters in a domain name

You should avoid unusual characters such as numbers or hyphens when registering your domain name. This can make your domain name longer than it needs to be, look "cheaper" than it would without the character, or infringe on another party's copyright.

With a domain name that you register, you can do anything, whether you want a long domain name, come up with an original idea for your business, or simply register your existing brand name.

Domain name that can last a while

You can work with a domain name for quite a while, often the intention is to use a domain name for an extended period of time. The cost of domain name registration increases with each year for a reason. A domain name with a history of several years ensures that the domain name is known to multiple parties and in many cases can be found more quickly. This is of course interesting when starting with a domain name with a history.

The value of a domain name

If you own a domain name, in some cases it is worth something, especially if it already had a website with content and a history in the Google search engine. In many cases, it's not worth much because the one domain name you registered as a joke is unlikely to be of interest to anyone else. If you have a domain name with a well-known word or term, it may be that your domain name is worth much more, domains can be bought for thousands of dollars.

Linking other extensions to your main domain name

If you have registered other domain name extensions and would like to use them as well, in most cases you can set up a redirect. A redirect will ensure that your domain name scores higher in the search engines. You can do this easily by creating a link to your main domain in the control panel or customer panel.
