Add a word to your .DIRECTORY domain name if it is not available
The perfect .DIRECTORY domain name may not be available when you go to claim it. If that is the case, add a memorable word before or after the main name that fits your business. This can be a useful way of getting close to what you want.
Don’t use doubled letters in your .DIRECTORY domain
Stay away from using domain names with doubled letters, like bb, ww, etc. This will help your website by avoiding a situation where traffic will be lost due to typos. Choose your .DIRECTORY domain name carefully.
