How to find the right domain

I’d like to show you how to find the right domain for your website.

  1. Don’t use your name. Think what your potential future customer might search for. Use if you still want a fancy name
  2. Use  brainstorming helps
  3. Use mass checker which helps you to easily find out if a domain under different top level domains is still available:

A domain must

  • be to the point
  • be writable in many languages
  • be short
  • be easy to memorize
  • not hurt third party rights (Simply check with Google if domain is already mentioned somewhere)
  • be available for at least com, net and org top level domains.

I advice you once you made your decision to register under that domain name for every important service on the web: Google, Digg, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Delicious, MSN Live, StumpleUpon, WordPress, Technorati and so on.
