Rules to Follow While Choosing Your Domain Name

- 25 December 2016 No Comments
Choosing the right domain name could be a pretty challenging affair. You may be starting a new business, or maybe you already have a brand but you are attempting to take that brand online. It could be that you are interacting with clients who are shifting their brand online. You may be initiating a new brand or a new firm.

Whatever the state of your business, you are going to require a website. Before you make your presence felt online, you must give it a good thought. Think about the domain name and your brand name. See how your brand name is actually represented via your chosen domain name online.

It is a fact that domain names would be having an intense impact across the web, as far as, the click through rate is concerned right from search to the ultimate social media results, to type-in traffic, to referring links, offline advertising, and brand-ability.

Rules to Follow While Choosing Your Domain Name

You could find expiring domains to start your own profitable business of domain flipping. However, there are certain rules that you need to follow while opting for a domain name.

It Should Be Truly Brandable
Choose a domain name that sounds very much like a brand. Brandable implies that when you hear someone or yourself say aloud the domain name, does it actually sound like a brand or does that sound very much like a generic?

So that implies that numbers and hyphens are an actual issue because they are not capable of making something sound almost like a brand. They would be making it sound strange or generic.

Is the brand memorable? Do not include generic keyword strings. These generic keyword strings are usually very difficult to remember as it is not easy to stand out from the rest. If you are looking for something unique, you must avoid the partial and also the matching keyword with domain names.

Also, if you consider the numbers in MozCast, for instance, or maybe in correlation studies, it could be seen that during the last decade or so, they have been able to do nothing apart from trending down, as far as, their correlation with the SEO rankings and also their capacity to show in various search results.

It Should Be Pronounceable
You may be wondering how is it vital to make it pronounceable when most searchers are going to type or click on a specific link. Actually, it is logical thanks to a concept known as processing fluency.

It is actually a cognitive bias which human beings have whereby we necessarily remember and develop more positive associations chiefly with things which we are able to think about and say easily.

Your domain name should essentially be pronounceable so that the processing fluency is not lost. You cannot afford to lose the memorability and also miss out on the advantages of bendability created by you.

It Should Be As Short As Possible
You must follow the other important rules first before focusing on the sheer length of your domain name. However, the length would matter simply from the point of view of processing fluency. The lesser characters any domain possesses, the easier it would be for typing, for saying, for sharing and it would get less shortened in search results and social media platforms. But be careful and do not go too short.

For instance, PastaScience.com is a good domain name. The moment you shorten it and make it PastaSci.com, it loses pronounceability, as well as, memorability to some extent. It becomes a brand but is tougher and little awkward.

It Should Definitely Have a Bias to .com
Today numerous TLD extension options are available but .com is the most popular, easily accessible and recognized brand apart from the tech world.

Cognitive fluency and processing fluency dictates that it is better to choose a domain name extension that people are able to connect with. .com is the most frequently used domain name extension among the non-tech savvy people. If in case, it is not available, opt for.co or.net.

It Should Not Infringe on Some Other Company’s Trademark
You simply cannot trespass. You cannot infringe on some other company’s trademark. Do not ever get confused on this count. You could face legal action. It would be better to consult a legal professional or a qualified attorney if you are having any sort of concerns.

Conclusion
If your target audience is able to correlate what you do by looking at your domain name then it is a huge positive. Your domain name should be such that people are able to guess at once, what your company does by looking at it. Your domain name should be instantly intuitive. Keep all the above-mentioned rules forever in your mind while making domain choices.

Top 3 iPhone Spy Apps for Effective Employee Monitoring

- 20 December 2016 No Comments
It may seem like the Android devices are ruling the world for now, but there is a hope for iPhones. Since 2007, the iPhone has become a stronger player in the volatile smartphone market. Today, in 2016, there are as many as 1 billion iPhone users in the world. In the U.S. alone, there are as many as 101 million loyal users.

In fact, an increasing number of businesses claim using various methods of tracking their employees and one of those methods is using an iPhone spy app.


Large companies have dedicated departments that solely monitor the activities of employees in an attempt to protect company secrets from competitors’ spies. As a business owner, you must be curious to know about the benefits that you can reap by using a phone monitoring app. Here are three apps you can use to track employees remotely:

Complete iPhone monitoring with Xnspy
Complete iPhone monitoring means having access to everything the target person does on the target device. If you want to be able to see complete call history, record calls, watchlist contacts, read SMS, iMessage, emails, and IM Chats (WhatsApp, Skype, Viber, LINE, KIK, and Facebook Messenger), it is possible.

You can also track Instagram and Tinder, photos and videos shared via messengers and on certain device. You will have access to the calendar entries, installed apps and the browser history & bookmarks.

Xnspy, as a complete iPhone spy app, also solves one of the most burning issues businesses face - employee tracking. You can know where they are, using this monitoring app. It also allows watchlisting places (Geofencing). It supports watchlisting words and contacts too and alerts you whenever there is a watch-listed activity.

It is compatible with all versions of jailbroken as well as non-jailbroken iOS devices. You don’t have to go through the hassle of jailbreaking the target device. It operates in stealth mode and its design, especially ensures that the target does not detect it while it collects data.

The basic edition of this app costs $8.33 per month, and the premium edition costs $12.49 per month. This makes it very reasonable and affordable with the numerous features it offers.

Substitute iPhone Monitoring with Flexispy
Every business has unique needs, which means that its employers have to choose apps according to the purpose, for which they want them. You may want to monitor the target's WeChat, Yahoo Messenger, BBM, QQ, Hangouts, or Hike messengers.

For that, this tracking app is useful because it offers these features. You can also monitor facetime on web chats because it has an inbuilt Facetime Spy Cam feature. Interestingly, you can delete specific SMS messages if you want to, remotely. You can send fake SMS messages, though. If you are interested, for a start, the premium package costs $168 per month, and the extreme package costs $199.

Substitute iPhone Monitoring with Flexispy

However, beware that this will alert the target person that someone is spying on them. You can also spy on the target person's passcodes, email passwords, and application passwords. It does offer remote control of the target device like Xnspy, so you can take screenshots and restart the device. However, you cannot lock the target device, wipe data, or block installed apps.

Standby iPhone monitoring with MobiStealth
If you need something that offers everything else that Xnspy does, then you may want to consider this as an alternative. It works on various recent versions of iPhones, iPads, and iPods and is available in both jailbroken and non-jailbroken versions.

It allows you to see all text messages, IM chats, track the target’s GPS location, and access browser history. You can monitor Skype, WhatsApp, Viber, Line, and KiK Chat. The app also allows email tracking, accessing call logs, photos, and videos, and installed apps to block unwanted ones remotely. Moreover, you can remotely wipe off the phone too, just like Xnspy.

It does offer key logger and other parental control features too, so you can subscribe to those according to your needs. The premium version costs $33.33 per month, and the Premium plus version costs $40 per month.

Before you move on from here, here's a little advice. Keeping an eye on employees is better than taking risks. After all, prevention is better than cure. Protect your company secrets using any iPhone spy app that suits your requirements.

It is important to choose an app that does not require jailbreaking the target iOS device. Experts recommend never jailbreaking the target device because it can make the target device vulnerable to hack attacks.

This goes against the main objective of using a monitoring app in the first place. Businesses use such apps to protect company secrets. A device vulnerable to hacking will increase threats for company secrets to leak if hackers hack them.
