Hi :)

Choosing a domain name is an important first stage in setting up your website, but at the same time, it's not something you need to spend hours agonizing over!

Ideally, your domain name should:

Be somewhat related to your topic. It doesn't necessarily need to include your keywords. If your topic was muscle building, a domain name like "promusclebuilding.com" would be great. You could also go with something like "getstrong.com" or "bulkup.com". They're easily related to muscle building, but don't necessarily explicitly mention "muscles".

Have a .com TLD. The domain registrars give you a choice of .com, .net, .org, and so on, but in general, .com is still the best. The exception is if you are specifically targeting a local market, in which case you might want to go after a .co.uk or a .com.au for example.

Not be too long. We recommend fewer than 20 characters, and fewer than 3 words. (eg, bestreviewsite.com is 3 words)

Be easy to remember. Short and catchy domain names are better than long, generic domain names stuffed with keywords. (eg, getstrong.com is better than howtobuildmusclesfaster.com)

Some useful tools to help you find a domain name include:
https://www.leandomainsearch.com/ -- a good tool for finding domain names that are available and contain one of your keywords.
https://www.bustaname.com/ -- lets you mix and match words to find available domain names.

We recommend going https://www.affilorama.com/domains to register your domain.

While choosing a domain name you have to keep some things in mind like choosing .com, including keywords in the domain for easier identification, easy to spell and pronounce, short and unique. Avoid using double letters and hyphens.
