Ok, you need a website. Now what? You will have to buy a domain name.
Before that, you need to decide what will be the name of your site.
Here are 5 tools that can help you find domain name ideas and choose the one that is best suited for your website:
Here are more details about each of them. Use them to get new domain name ideas and check their availability.
Namecheap offers you an advanced search called Beast Mode. It allows you to add up to 5,000 keywords, select the price range, domain extensions (.com, .org, .eu, etc.), select some extra search options (plural words, prefixes and sufixes, etc.) and generate a list of domain names.
Once you generate the list of ideas, you’ll be able to purchase the desired domain names right away.
Instant Domain Search automatically generates available domain names and shows you domains available for sale. Start by typing in your name idea, and this tool will let you know instantly if it’s available or not. If it’s not, the tool will suggest some good alternatives that are currently available.
I like this tool because it’s fast and generates some great ideas instantly.
DomainWheel is a simple tool that identifies all domains available based on your search and gives you the tools to register them on the spot. DomainWheel will provide a list of original names for your future website, and will display up to 16 different domain extensions (.com, .org, .net, .blog, .info etc) to chose from.
It’s not as fast as the previous 2, but it offers you some random alternatives and similar sounding names, which might be handy.
NameMesh finds names and ranks them based on categories like: common, new, similar, SEO, fun etc. in order to get you the most relevant suggestions. Start by entering the keywords for your startup idea and NameMesh will suggest available domain names, which best match your criteria.
Name Station is another great tool that generates thousands of domain names based on keyword input. You can sign up for a free account using your email or Facebook account. Try searching based on your keyword ideas and then filter based on domain availability, extension, suffixes, name length etc.
Honorable mention: I discovered this tool around 10 years ago, it’s a handy tool to generate some nice domain name ideas. It’s called Wordoid.
Here you go folks, go ahead and search for your desired domain name.
