Choosing the right travel blog name is very important, because your travel blog name is the first impression you’ll make on potnetial readers.
To make a good impression, you’ll need a memorable, catchy, and unique name that will stand out and will be memorable in people’s mind.
If you want to start a blog, and start the blog building process first, it’s definitely possible and very easy!
You can start a blog now and choose a name later once you are setteled with the perfect name.

Travel Blog Names Tips:
1. Use a .com Domain
Let’s be honest, most of us remember websites with a .com at the end since it is more popular more than choosing a .org, .co, .net, etc.
But of course, if a .com domain isn’t available, you can choose the other endings too, but try to find a .com domain since it’s the most common and standered domain name which looks the most professional.
2. Don’t use numbers or hyphens
By this I mean to actually not use numbers or hyphens in your travel blog name since it looks very unproffessional and confusing to your audience.
For example, as you can tell, my domain name is travel-by-maya.com, originally I wanted travelbymaya.com but that domain was taken. So instead of doing travelbymaya101.com for example, I chose my domain to be travel-by-maya.com since it looks more professional.
3. Make sure your name is available on social media
Before you register your domain, make sure it is available on social media platforms. This isn’t a complete dealbreaker, but if your name isn’t available it might be harder for people to find you.
But once again, in my opnion this isn’t a deal breaker and I wouldn’t give up a name if it’s taken on social media.
4. Avoid choosing an overused name
Since the travel blogging industry contains many bloggers and influencers, there are a lot of blogs with similar names.
Even though it can get hard, because there are many bloggers and many travel blog names taken, try avoiding using an overused name and try picking something more unique that will stand out.
5. Keep your travel blog name simple
Once again, make sure your travel blog name is simple, catchy, and memorable. Whatever you choose, make sure it’s also not too long and that it’s an easy to remember and to pronounce name.
6. Choose a kind of general travel blog name
If you start your travel blog as an affordable travel blog, don’t name your blog “Affordable Traveling” for example, because maybe in the future you’ll grow to a luxury travel blog, and then the “Affordable Traveling” blog name won’t fit anymore.
Pick a name that you can grow with from the start, and that doesn’t limit you with your niche or in general with your blog.

What to do After You Chose a Travel Blog Name?
Now the fun part begins! Finally, starting your blog! Once you have your travel blog name, it’s time to start building your blog!
If after this blog post, and the travel blog name ideas list you still haven’t found the perfect travel blog name, that’s fine too! Don’t stress about it.
You can actually set up your blog name, then pick a name later once you decide on the perfect name.
Your next step at the beginning of your blogging journey is to register your domain name (if you’ve decided on one) and get web hosting for it.
A domain name through an outside company will cost around $15-$20 for it. However, a great way to get around it is to sign up for web hosting through Bluehost (my most recommended web hosting provider I use for all of my blogs), where you will get a FREE DOMAIN NAME!
I use Bluehost for both of my blogs, and also for other blogs I had in the past. I am very satisfied with their reliable service, amazing customer support, and from the research, I did they also offer some of the cheapest web hosting plans on the market!
Also, if the free domain isn’t enough, Bluehost is offering Travel By Maya’s readers’ web hosting starting at $3.95 a month (normally $7.99 a month) along with a free domain name and free email address.
Here’s a quick guide on how to set up web hosting with Bluehost:
Click “Get Started”
Select Your Hosting Plan
As a new blogger, pick the Basic Plan. I personally have the Plus Plan because I have more than one blog. But if you are just starting out, or if you are not interested in having more than one blog, the basic plan is perfect for you! In the future, you can always upgrade your plan if you are interested.
Insert Your Domain Name
This is your place to place the domain name you decided on earlier. Just write your domain name in the “Create a New Domain” section and get going!
If you didn’t decide on a domain name yet, and you want to wait a little bit longer before you decide, no worries. Wait a few minutes and this offer will pop up on your screen. Just click the “Choose Free Domain Later” button and move on.
Create Your Account
Just fill in all of the needed information to create your Bluehost account.
Pick Your Package And Pay
This is where you’ll select your hosting plan and pay for it. Honestly, the 36-month plan is the best deal at $3.95 a month, but if you don’t want to commit for that long, you can also pick a 12-month plan at $5.95 a month for an overall lower cost.
And that’s it! YOU HAVE A BLOG!
Now, you can log in to your WordPress dashboard through Bluehost!
That’s it! This was the ultimate travel blog name choosing guide and the best travel blog names ideas and tips!
