Below you'll find some tips when registering a domain name that will make SEO (search engine optimization) a little easier along with standards that you'll find important when registering a domain name.
Don't Register Domain Names That Are Too Long
Having a domain that's too long serves absolutely no purpose. It's tough to remember along with site visitors won't want to type in a long address each and every time they want to visit your website. Yes, you can register names up to 63 characters long, but that doesn't mean you ought to to use all 63 characters.
Try To Register A .COM Domain
.COM is by far the most acknowledged domain name and if it's available definitely register it. With this in mind there isn't any advantage when determining search engine rankings based on the domain extension so if a good .NET, .US, .ORG, etc is available you should at least consider it, you could lose traffic due to people automatically typing in the .COM extension.
Protect Your Domain Name!
I'd personally highly suggest registering multiple extensions (.net, .org, etc.). This keeps people from registering the alternate domain name extensions based on the brand that you've built. There are a lot of thief that wants to take away your success. The top 4 domain register I say is .Com, .net, .org, and .info in that order. I personally only take .com, .net, and .org. This causes confusion for your customers and could cost you money in lost sales if you don't protect yourself. Think of it this way, if you run Building.com you can also register Building.net, Building.org and any other extension that's available.
Protect Your Privacy
Not too long ago the option for private registration has become a feasible option. You can find the owner of a website on any registered domain by doing a WhoIs lookup. The information provided would be your name, address, phone number & email address. Adding domain privacy is like an unlisted phone number with the phone company.
