New to building websites? I see you in this rabbit hole googling “domain name ideas” for your website. Don’t spend months searching for it. Here is a comprehensive list of the methods you can use. You will find an ideal domain name for your niche website quickly; a corporate name even.
Use the following methods:
1. A Domain name generator tool.
Most Domain name generator tools work better if you have at least one word that defines your niche. You don’t need to have a clue of the directions you can take with the concept. Let the tool generate a list of the name suggestions for you. Here is the perfect example at leandomainsearch.com. Head straight to the search bar, enter your word and let the program do what it does best. This one in particular returns search results with hundreds of suggested name ideas in one search. It will even allow you to do a domain name availability check. That too, for the Twitter handle. You can also register the domain name with Bluehost from within.
2. A Domain name Naming contest
Use this method if you know what you want in a domain name. Perfect for those who don’t want to go through the stressful process of finding the title themselves. With clear instructions of what to expect and a brief description to the purpose of your website, submit a name contest request and let the naming squad do the work for you. Examples of brilliant sites where you can provide such requests include squadhelp.com and namestation.com.
3. Use syllables to alter words to cool domain names.
I picture you sulking over a cool domain name that became no longer available while you were busy brainstorming ideas. Panabee.com has a fancy way of adding syllables to words to add more chill sounding vibes to the name.
4. Use synonyms to find alternative domain names.
Does your first choice word for the domain name appear to be overused? It happens a lot. More now than ever as more individuals get involved with creating websites. Use synonyms to come up with alternatives and still maintain the meaning. You can choose a synonym that can associate with fancy, catchy, modern, classy, unique; it’s all up to you to communicate the essence you want to associate with your website. There are online dictionaries you can use for a quick search or google alternative words.
5. Use phrases and idioms to create a domain name.
Here you can flip common phrases and expressions to come up with memorable, fresh, catchy and even a brandable domain name with a strong call to action tagline too.
An appropriate dictionary or app can help you quickly find idioms and phrases you can flip.
6. Mesh words to come up with a domain name.
By meshing words, related or unrelated, you can come up with the following types of domain names
• Keyword-rich domain names.
Domain names that are a trail of popular keywords. They are search engine friendly and often useful for search engine optimization (SEO). Most importantly, are an easy way to communicate directly or indirectly, the types of products you sell.
• Unique and memorable domain names
Choose a strategy you want for the mesh. You can create new words, shorten keywords, modify popular phrases, come up with unique, memorable, or brandable domain names.
• Brandable domain names including those with unpopular syllables – that’s also doable by meshing words.
• Catchy domain names – that too with a suitable mesh strategy in place.
• Cool, funky, cheesy, horror and more types.
The tool that can help you out with a quick search to some extent, is namemesh.com. You might have to incorporate any of the above methods to get a desired outcome.
7. A keyword research tool to find a domain name.
If you’re only doing a quick search for a domain name, then I don’t expect you to agree to invest in a keyword research tool. The good ones usually don’t come cheap, especially if you only want to use it for this one small task. But, if you’re here to do business online, and in it for a long haul, you might as well consider checking out this multipurpose keyword research tool. Apart from other functions, it also has a domain name search functionality that can help you find top tier keyword-rich domain names. Those keywords with higher average monthly search volumes with a .com, .org, or .net extensions – they improve visibility of your website and somehow help keep up with online competition using the search engine ranking system.
