A domain is a website address that is one-of-a-kind.
It is created in accordance with the website's purpose and therefore reflects the name of the store, product, or brand.
Creating a catchy domain that suggests the website's content is most effective.

The best-case scenario is to register the domain name you want; however, since there cannot be more than one of each domain names, you need to check whether the name of your choice is available.
