Do you know what your score is?

Do you know what your score is? No, not in the last game you played, not your score on your new Wii Fit, but what your domain score is.

A new place called Network Solutions has a FREE quiz that can let you know how well your own domain name is helping your business succeed online. All you have to do is take a simple 3 question quiz and you will get your very own domain name scorecard that shows you an analysis of your domain name in the six key areas of domain name success.

The domain name you have is a powerful asset to how your business thrives. Have you done everything you can with your domain name? Does it help you compete online with other businesses? Take a few minutes and answer 3 quick questions to find out.

Although I personally don’t own a business domain, I do own a message board with my own domain. Here are the simple steps to find out what our score is at

First step is to start by entering my primary domain name, then click Get Started. Next step is to figure out if I have any additional extensions of this exact domain name? (e.g., .com, .net, .org, etc.), which I do not. Then it talks about protecting my brand, and asks if I have registered misspellings and common typing mistakes or names that sound like yours that a competitor might register (e.g., someone might mis-type as Which again, I have not. My last question is about Descriptive Domain Names and asks if I have registered domain names that describe your products, services or locality (e.g., a law firm specializing in family law in New York could register "" and "" in addition to the name of their law firm)? Again, this is a NO for me. I can then proceed to my results which will be emailed to me for free.

It’s that quick and simple.
