What restrictions are there on the domain name I can choose to register?

Domain Names have a variety of basic rules, in general domains must: 

- Use only letters, numbers, or hyphen ("-"). 

- Cannot begin or end with a hyphen. 

- .com, .net, .org and .info domain names cannot exceed 67 characters total. 

- .info and .biz must have at least 3 characters not including .info or .biz. 

- Other domain names cannot exceed 22 characters, not including the extension. 

Domain names are not case sensitive. 

Domain names cannot include spaces. 

- 2 letter domains are not permitted. 

Strictly speaking domain shouldn't begin with a number either, however in practice it is possible in most circumstances.
