It may only be one word, but the right domain name can be a huge asset to your business. It is the signature by which potential customers all over the Web will come to know and recognize your enterprise. A good domain name can bring in customers and a bad name can drive them away, so choosing the right name is crucial. Here are five easy steps for doing just that.

Five Easy Steps to Finding a Great Business Domain Name

First, define your company. What do you offer? Who are your target customers, and where are they? How do you stand out from your competitors? Do you occupy a unique niche within your industry? Thinking about these things will help you come up with a name that fits.

Second, write down your ideas. Make a list of keywords. Jot down some images that you would like your name to bring to mind, and some thoughts that you would like it to convey. Remember that you’ll have to be creative, because millions of domain names have already been taken and thousands more are added to the Internet each day. But there are still myriad possibilities out there for names that are distinctive and easy to recall, names that won’t be drowned out by a sea of ordinary names when your potential customers are browsing the web.

Third, put your ideas together and come up with some candidates for your domain name. Sometimes two or three words that are ho-hum on their own can be combined or melded into one another to make something that sounds just right. A simple phrase might do the trick. If your business is selling widgets, why not call it WorldOfWidgets.com? If you’re stumped, or even if you’d just like some other ideas to add to the mix, a domain name generator like http://www.namestation.com can be very helpful. It can generate random, memorable and pronounceable names, or names based around your chosen keywords. It can blend words in all sorts of ways and add alliteration. And it can check to see if your chosen name is in fact available, and suggest alternatives if it is not.

Fourth, brainstorm. Take your short list of potential names and run it by your friends, family and colleagues. They will bring fresh perspectives to bear on your choices, and may come up with good ideas you hadn’t thought of. It will be easier to make a confident final choice after weighing their ratings and opinions of the potential names you’ve settled upon.

Finally, select the best domain name from your list of candidates and get it registered. It may be a good idea to buy multiple extensions of your domain name, like .net and .org, to help protect your brand, and to make sure that anyone who comes across your chosen domain name will be drawn to your company alone. It’s also smart to check that your chosen domain name and any associated logo don’t infringe on any copyrights or trademarks.

Dictionary Domain Names Search

Finding the perfect domain name can be a tedious process because so many great domains are already registered. But that doesn’t mean that all the best domains are taken, or that it is impossible or too time consuming to find the name that best suits your needs.

NameStation has developed an innovative domain name generator full of priceless features that make choosing a bespoke domain easy and even fun. The Dictionary Domains Search allows users to search for names using the extensive power of the dictionary. For a basic search, simply click the Dictionary Domains tab from the menu, enter a keyword and then choose an extension like .com or .net. Your keyword can be a word you would actually like to use in your domain, like “bubble”, or merely related, like “pop”. Once you click generate names, a list will display endless combinations of possible domain names that are a combination of your keyword and another word, like “bubbleach” for example.

You can customize your Dictionary Domain search further with features like Alliterations and Related Words. Want your domain to have a playful tone or memorable pronunciation? Alliterations produce names like “BubbleBuddy” and “PopPoem”, to use our previous keyword examples. Using the Related Words feature can expand your options further by creating domains using words similar to your keyword.

If you haven’t found the perfect domain name yet, the other Dictionary Domain features will narrow down your choices. Word Lookup will locate your keyword in a massive list of alphabetical choices, allowing you to use the power of the dictionary in a matter of minutes. But if you are interested in using a name in another language, use the Translations feature and access possible domain names in more than 20 different languages.

Namestation’s Dictionary Domain tool is just one aspect of the groundbreaking domain name generator. If you haven’t found your perfect domain name with the Dictionary Domain feature, then visit namestation.com. After you experience the many features of the domain name generator, you will surely have chosen the ideal name.

Website Name Ideas

Selecting a good name for your online company is one of the most important business decisions you can make. The right name can make a significant difference to your bottom line and to the ongoing success of your business. With so many millions of domain names out there, it may seem as if all the best ones have been taken, but time spent thinking up effective domain name ideas is still time well spent.

Before you start, define your business clearly. What do you make? What do you do? How do you stand out from the competition? What is it about your business that you want your domain to communicate to your customers?

Whatever name you choose, you want it to be easy to remember. That way, it’ll be easier for potential and repeat customers to keep it in mind when they’re in the market for your products or services, and it will generate easy traffic for your site.

Branding is important. You want a name that is associated with your unique brand, a name that will draw web-browsing customers to your company and not to those of your competitors.

Keywords can help draw in customers, too. Incorporating the right keyword into your domain name will result in better search engine results. If you service a particular geographical area, tossing a brief geographical reference into your name can help pull in local customers.

Your business name should sound good to the ear. If you want your customers to spread good word of mouth about you, it helps if your name trips easily off their tongues. Alliteration can help in this regard, and so can borrowing a word from another language. If you have foreign or multi-ethnic customers, however, be cautious, since a name that sounds right in English can sound ridiculous in some foreign languages, and may even have unfortunate connotations.

With so many domain names already taken, you’ll want to be creative. But sometimes a simple phrase can yield a name that sounds good and evokes just the right image in the minds of your customers. For instance, if you want to get across the idea that your shoe store offers great variety, why not make it SeaOfShoes.com? The right metaphor can work wonders.

Beware of any copyright or trademark infringement. Besides checking to see if your chosen business domain name is available, go the extra mile to make sure that you won’t receive any cease and desist letters from hostile lawyers.

A good domain name generator like NameStation can help tremendously when you’re trying to come up with good name ideas. It can generate a lot of possible names for you very quickly, based on the criteria that you select. It can evaluate your name ideas and spur your creativity in coming up with better ones. It can check out available domains and suggest alternatives and, if a particular name is already taken, it will suggest variations. And it can put the power of crowdsourcing to work for you by letting you run naming contests, either private ones with your friends or public ones with lots of potential customers. Their feedback and fresh perspectives can help you choose a business domain name that’s just right for you.

Creating Domain Name Suggestions

One of the most important assets your business needs to start with is a domain name that is memorable, brandable, and pronounceable.

A name that’s easy to remember is easy to type into a search engine and will help to draw traffic to your site. It will also leave a lasting association with your products and services in the minds of your customers. A brandable name will set you apart from your competitors and focus your customers’ minds on what you do best. It will serve as your unique signature on the Internet and will draw potential customers toward your company, and away from competitors with more ho-hum names. A name that trips easily off the tongue sticks better in peoples minds, and is easier for them to share with others when they want to give your business some good word of mouth.

There are over 200 million registered domain names out there, with more added every minute of the day. It may seem as if all the good names are long gone, but great possibilities still remain to be created. Nonetheless, it can take a lot of time and effort to come up with a fresh name that stands out from the crowd. If you’re having trouble coming up with good domain name suggestions on your own, or even if you just want to be exposed to some other ideas, you might find invaluable time-saving help from a domain name suggestions generator.

Not only can NameStation produce a wealth of domain name suggestions for you, it can help you evaluate and elaborate on those suggestions and even to use crowdsourcing to come up with even more. It puts no fewer than 17 different name generator interfaces at your service, all of them friendly and easy to use. There is a random name generator that can turn out names not just in English, but in Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish and dozens of other languages, even some imaginary languages like Sindarin (the language used by the elves in the Lord of the Rings trilogy). There are 173 lists of keywords for all manner of business niches that you can consult. There is a suffix generator that will add popular endings to randomly generated names or to names of your choice. You can swap words around, toss in plural forms, and try all kinds of other variations. You can combine and merge words in all sorts of ways. They can be blended together to produce something new and catchy, or words with overlapping parts can be joined together. You can add alliteration in order to make your names sound better. You can look up words in dictionaries and find their etymology. Names can be translated to and from different languages. Check any name you come up with for its availability in the 43 Top Level Domains section.

If all of those possibilities aren’t enough for you, NameStation offers the opportunity to brainstorm and put crowdsourcing to work for you by holding naming contests. You can hold private contests with your friends, or public contests open to hundreds or thousands of contestants.

Finally, when you’ve picked out the best domain name from all of those suggestions, you can use NameStation’s handy links to registration providers that will get that name registered for you.

Having trouble finding the perfect website name?

Almost everyone today has a web presence in some capacity, whether it is a simple Twitter or Instagram profile, a Blogger account, or something more complex like a website. Many people even own more than one website.

While a handle for Twitter can be created quite easily, choosing a domain name for a website can be a more difficult process. In the past, a brick and mortar business existed long before its web presence was created. And, once a website was needed, a business owner could usually just use the current business name.

But presently, this is much harder to do: many common domain names are already taken! In addition, many businesses exist exclusively online, or their domain name will be the determining factor when choosing the business name. This means that choosing the right domain name for your business name or product is more important than ever. And because
simple and straightforward names are already in use, finding your domain name can be a challenge.

Namestation is a one of a kind website that will make lemonade out of these domain name lemons! With the use of Namestation’s domain name generators, finding a one-of-a-kind domain doesn’t even feel like a challenge; in fact, it is fun. Once you sign up for a free account, you can access name generators that help you access a seemingly endless supply of valuable domains. But if you don’t feel like searching for your own domain, start a contest and see what other users come up with.
