    People scan words a lot, so try to keep the domain name under 5 words. Think of the most popular websites on the internet today. None have more than 5 words in their name.

    Try verbs. Action words. Tutorials tell people what to do. What actions to take. Verbs describe that.

    Also, and obviously, make the name relevant to what you are doing.....tutorial.......digital.......affiliate.

    Take those suggestions along with looking at blogs that are in the same field and you should come up with something fairly quickly.

    Good Luck

    Decide your main keyword, for example "tutorials", then open any free domain generator and put it into search box.

    You will end up with around 3000 ideas for .com domain.

    After that just write down every domain you will like till you get a list with at least 20 variations.

    Now have a look to your list and decide which one will describe your site most or even ask your friends.

    I don’t think anyone can help you figure out what your domain should be like this. You need to start by figuring out your whole brand. As the other commenters already mentioned, you can dry “digitaltutorials” or something of that sort. Or find a list of available domain names in your niche and pick one. Whichever way you end up going, good luck.

    How to Choose A Domain Name For A Blog, This one is a big question for all those, Who look for Blog name.

    Blog name does matter for SEO purpose & apart from the SEO, Blog name also works for Brands. So a Blog should be relevant to the theme, relevant to brand name & should short name as much it could.

    Some Experts share their experience for Blog Name & they say... a Domain should short and very easily without using the number and special key.

    Use keywords in your domain name search
    Keep your domain name short
    Make it easy to pronounce and spell
    Keep it unique and brandable
    Avoid hyphens in domain name
    Avoid doubled letters

    Just a few words and it will be better if it's unique. It should be easy to remember and short. Most people use smartphones, so it's inconvenient to type a long phrase.
