A domain name by itself has no functionality and may be parked for future use.  If you plan to order Hosting or other services you can order them at the same time by going to the applicable page above.

New Domain Search Tips

Choosing a new name can be a challenge that often requires a lot of hard work mixed with creativity and the right tools.  Your goal should always be to get the shortest most memorable name that is not likely to be misspelled or mistyped and ideally has some association with what you do. You can choose any domain that is available as long as it contains alpha, numeric or dashes.

 

Permitted Characters:  A to Z , Any Number 12345.... or the dash "-"

 

.Com .Net .Biz What is Best: There are many Top Level Domain (TLD) types based on category or country.  
.Com is for commercial and used in 70% of market and is the most prized since its the one that most people go to out of habit  but as the .com supply gets depleted we are seeing more and more alternate names such as .Net for network and .Org for organization.  If your a United States based firm you can order .US  and any business can order a .Biz as well.
 

What if your Domain is not available ? In most cases if you are both creative, patient and flexible you will be able to locate an available domain that will work for your needs.  

Variants:  If your chosen name is  cars.com and you find its taken  try carbuyer.com   or ecarbuyer.com
Synonyms:  car = auto = automobile = transport = fleet=  etc.  Try an online synomym engine for ideas
  
Dashed or numbered:  carsdirect.com is not availabe try cars-direct.com   or cars99.com
Plural:   when car.com is not try cars.com
Slang:  carz.com  , myride.com
Alternates:  If desired you can switch letter"O" with number "0"  or letter "E" with number "3"  or letter "s" with letter "z"

When buying new domains consider buying mis-spelled and similar sounding names as well as locking up alternate TLDs so your competition doesn't buy the same name with a .net or .us to siphon off your traffic.


Alias Domains

The mistyping of names is very common and if your in a business that is looking for maximum click through results  you may want to order some misspelled domains and point them to your main hosted site to capture extra traffic.


Misspelled Domains:   This happens when there are alternate or phonetic spellings ie: Nite Corporation might choose  nitecorp.com  but would be wise to get nightcorp.com  as well.

Misinterpreted Domains:  Its very common for certain letters to be confused such as lower case L "l" with capitol i "I" or numeric "1"   the letter "O" with the number zero "0" so try to avoid both letters in your domain names. 

Mistyped  Domains:  certain words have a higher incidence of mistyping such as googe.com vs google.com .  You use this tool to locate alternate mistyped domains. 

Plural Domains:  If your domain name is singular ie:  baseballbat.com  then you should strongly consider buying the plural baseballbats.com as many users will enter it.  In the same way if you have plural company name ie: greenindustries.com  you may also want to the coresponding singular variant.
