if you don’t have a simple domain name like applygist.com , you are missing out
Now Reading the title of this post, You must
have been wondering that what reasons COULD
make one think of changing his/her domain
name? be a new domain or an old one.

1. Complicated Name – If you tell someone on

wish to sell in the future.
5. Domain Not Related To The Site’s Content –
You have a domain name as
“allroundsports.com” and when people check
your site, your content is all about Agriculture.
