Why Hyphenated Domain Names?

Why https://rohitseo.wordpress.com if (hyphenated) and not https://rohitseo.wordpress.com (non-hyphenated)? The current main search engine doesn’t recognize the individual words from the above non-hyphenated domain names, so they would not help future optimization plans. The hyphenated domain https://rohitseo.wordpress.com is seen by Google as- https://rohitseo.wordpress.com since Google treats . (dots) and – (hyphens) as a space. We say “google can parse those keywords out of the domain name”. Note a domain with a single keyword (i.e http://www.keyword.tld) will have the single keyword recognized since Google sees the two dots (in the example above) as spaces (sees www keyword tld). So when choosing a domain name either go with a single keyword domain or have multiple (or at least one) keyword(s) separated by hyphens.

Thanx for your reply
