As we have mentioned previously, domain names are no longer restricted to 23 characters and can go up to 67 characters long with the extension. In short, you can now get longer domain names that were previously unavailable. You can also get domains that include a great many keywords. Including keywords in your domain can significantly improve your rankings on many major search engines.

Over the past few weeks we have received some specific questions we'd like to answer regarding these longer domains:
"Are longer domains better than shorter domains?"
For your main Web site, a short domain name that is easy to remember and spell is best. However, something too short that uses abbreviations may be hard to remember. Try to find a happy medium, especially for TV, radio, or standard print advertising. Evidence shows that buying a close variation
of your domain name is also beneficial. Even misspellings of your chosen name
will help to catch those who don't type it in their browsers properly.
Search engines prefer domains that include the keyword that is being searched, and with this in mind, you should include a wider array of keywords in the new longer
format. This will make it easier to improve your rankings.
If shorter domains are better for humans and search engines prefer longer domains, what route should I take?
Advertise your shorter domain but submit your long domains to the search engines. Most hosting services will permit several domains to point to the same Web site. Most of the time this is a free service or can be purchased for a small fee.
There's no time like the present to take advantage of
this new development.
