2) Keep it plain - don't use hyphens if you don't have to because it complicates the domain name both visually as well as when telling it to someone.

3) Be different - try to create a unique domain name, one that users will connect with you. Choosing a company name can be a good choice. Example: fastfood.com isn't the same as bestone.com.
