It is the window to your business, so it is very important that you take the time and find one that is relevant to what your advertising.

You also want to purchase one that is easy to remember. You don't want one that is long and drawn out, because people won't remember it and they don't want to have to type a big long name in order to find a particular item or website. Whatever one you decide on for your particular business, make it catchy, something that will grab a persons attention as soon as they hear it. Ideally you want it to be three to four words long, all the words have something to do with your business (keyword rich), simple and something catchy that will get peoples attention when they hear it.

Another thing to remember, you don't want to replace words with numbers or letters, this will only confuse people, and you could lose potential customers.
