Optimal Domain Name Length
What distinguishes a good domain name from a bad domain name?
Quite simply, you can remember a good domain name right away and even weeks later enter it correctly into the browser. You read or hear a bad name and immediately forget it.
Very bad names make it clear that you not only forget them, but you can not even google them because name and content have nothing to do with each other.
The best content and looks do not help your web project if the domain name does not fit. Domain name is a crucial element for your success on the net.
From a SEO point of view, the question arises, the length of the domain and the length of the URL has an influence on the ranking.
An optimal domain name for your website can also be spoken immediately, remember and type without errors. So if possible avoid foreign words and in no case combine foreign words from two languages - there are errors programmed. In addition, you should definitely make a false test, so you can rule out typical typos. Because such typos usually mean that your visitors land on another website.
If your choice is for a foreign language word, you should definitely check if the word exists in other languages and what it means, just to be on the safe side, to avoid any embarrassment. Be careful with abbreviations.
The name of a domain shapes the image of the site to an important extent. A professional web project needs a correspondingly professional name, which fits exactly to the project and reflects for what you stand for or what your idea stands for.
In principle there are two possibilities, either you think of a project name which sounds good, is short, understandable and still free and which you yourself develop into a brand. Or you choose a name that is self-descriptive.
The length of the URL itself usually has no effect on the positioning, as long as you do not overdo it. Especially if the domain is quite long, you should not create the urls too long.
Note: the longest domain name in the world is the Internet address of a community in the south of the Isle of Anglesey in the county of the same name in North West Wales.

At least in the initial phase, most visitors will not come to your page, because they will not enter the name of your website. First of all, your website will be found through search engines. And the more meaningful your domain name, the higher you'll end up in the results list from Google.
