Search and the new gTLDs domain names

If you buy a new gTLD domain name, will there be ANY search benefit?

" . . . The fact is, says Newport Beach-based search guru Danny Sullivan, these new URLs [the new gTLDs] just may not have that much of an impact on search. "The words in a domain name can give a very slight benefit for search rankings, but there are many, many other factors that outweigh them," Sullivan said. "We've had new domains come in the past, along with promises they'd deliver some type of search benefit, and it never happens. So don't worry about that domain gold rush you fear you might be missing. You aren't." Will Sullivan be purchasing search.guru? "Oh God, no," he said." source: BusinessWeek

Nice article ! Before choosing a domain name, you can consider the following aspects :

1. It should be short and easily memorable by the website visitors.
2. Avoid hyphens in your domain name.
3. Avoid punctuation marks.
4. It should be in between 3-8 characters long.
5. It should be related with your website content.
6. Extensions are more essential for each and every domain name. So, choose a good domain name with nice extensions such as .com,.net,.org etc.

After selecting a good domain name, you can check whether the domain name ( what you have chosen ) is already registered by someone or not by using
9cubehosting.com . Before buying a domain name from domain provider, you have to check the following factors:

1. Company existence
2. Customer support
