''The marketing friendly, (vanity url), persistent URL is vital for electronic citation persistence on the web in the long term and for repository marketing/branding.''
 
*Go to: http://no-www.org
 
*Decide on a marketing friendly persistent (URL) for the repository.
 
*This name should be short and simple to remember, easy to type into documentation and good for marketing/branding.
 
*Ensure the name will never change and that it has a clean URL with no forward slash redirect. See links below.
