Naming Your Food Truck Website

tip of the day

Naming a website for your food truck can be confusing if you aren’t familiar with the process or have a limited knowledge of the Internet. Here are 5 great tips that will start you on the right path to successfully name your mobile food business domain.

Create an online identity. Get a Web domain now, even if you aren’t building your site until later.

Pick three domain names that fit your business. Your first choice may be taken, so have a few domain name ideas. If your top three picks are available, consider getting all three. It’s not too expensive and then you have flexibility to create a site for a special promotion or use a special landing page for an event.

Check out domain name vendors. You can register your domain with your choice of vendor. Here are some well-known, domain name registrars:

Keep your renewal current. Don’t forget to renew your domain name. Businesses have been known to let a name expire and then find that their Web site has disappeared from the Internet. Don’t let that be you.

Once you have a domain, name your URL (Uniform resource locator), place your URL on every marketing and business document that you produce. Let your company be known.

We hope you find these tips helpful in the process of naming your food truck website.

In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.
