Creating Domain Name Suggestions

Create domain name suggestions here.

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.

How to generate web 2.0 names?

You have probably heard about websites such as Pinterest, Zynga, Flickr or Instagram. Those names, characterized as web 2.0-ish, are a step forward from the ordinary this-site-is-about.com names. From the previous article you got an idea what are web 2.0 names in general and now it’s time to get down to it and create some names yourself. If you are thinking about applying web 2.0 naming techniques to your own business, you might want to check the variety of name creation features on NameStation.

Getting down to business

Let´s take the first name on the list – Pinterest. It is a combination of two different words – pin and interest. The domain search tool to use on NameStation to obtain such results most effectively is Combine Lists. It blends two conceptual word lists with the possibility to choose whether you want the whole word to appear in the name or just a part of it.

For example, when looking for a name for a fitness blog, you may combine the lists like Health and Dynamic, Positive and Sport, Your Contest Keywords and Health, etc. It all depends on the concepts that you need to be reflected in the name of your company.

To create business names that include a particular word or a part of this word, choose Append Lists. This feature allows you to combine the word with any of the predetermined conceptual word lists. You can also choose if you want the word to appear at the beginning or at the end of the name.

Even more web 2.0-ish – looking further from compounds

If you don’t need your name to resemble a compound, you should also try the Substitutions Search or Random Name Generator to coin new words such as Zynga or Meebo.

The Random Name Generator is the easiest way to create names that essentially have no meaning; consequently, they won’t evoke any associations with your field of business. Such names could be very distinctive and in addition they enable you to build up the meaning of your brand from scratch.

For a wider selection of name alternatives, you could also use the Random Name feature in different languages, such as French, Latin or even Afrikaans.

Substitutions Search differs from the Random Name Generator in terms of letting you determine some parts of the name you would like your company to have. You just need to follow the key, presented on the right-hand side of the search feature.

For example, if you want to find a name, comprising of 6 letters so that the 1st, 4th and 6th letter are consonants and the rest are vowels, you can create a suitable name pattern with the help of the key. Having done that, you only need to press Search and NameStation will generate names according to your criteria. In case of the previous example, the pattern would be !**!*!.

Some examples of name patterns:

  • R?!*** – 6 letters, begins with R, 2nd letter is a vowel and 3rd a consonant
  • !?!?graph – ends with graph, preceded by the combination of consonant-vowel-consonant-vowel (CVCV)
  • Tan****! – 8 letters, begins with tan and finishes with a consonant; in between are 4 random letters
  • ?!??!? – 6 letters, begins with a vowel, followed by a consonant, 2 vowels and another consonant and a vowel.

What are Web 2.0 domain names?

Many of you reading this article are probably struggling with finding a great domain name for your business or have faced the challenge at some point. The most obvious domain names, such as furniture.com, bestwishes.com, mylife.com, have been snapped up by companies or domainers ages ago, and to reach what is left out there requires a fair amount of creative thinking. This is also the reason why web 2.0 domain names have grown increasingly popular.

To be honest, there is no clear definition what makes a domain name web 2.0. The most common criteria you may often hear is that the name should be trendy, cutting-edge and unique. Sounds ambiguous, doesn’t it? It should, because the term itself is rather intuitive and abstract; therefore, most interpretations have at least a tinge of truth in them. Nevertheless, some domain names just seem more web 2.0-ish than others.

Web 2.0 itself refers to websites that enable users to communicate with each other and generate content as opposed to web 1.0, which consists of sites that are plain information providers targeting passive readers. Web 2.0 sites include, for example, social networks, wikis, blogs and other content sharing websites. Facebook and Twitter would be the most obvious examples. Web 2.0 domain names, however, are only related to web 2.0 as much as the fact that such domain names established their popularity together with the development of web 2.0 itself. While a huge number of web 2.0 sites have a name that could be characterized as web 2.0-ish, it is not a must.

Main characteristics of web 2.0 domains

Like I said before, no one has actually established the specific characteristics of a web 2.0 name. However, everyone seems to agree that when the name does not exist as a real word, it is somehow related to web 2.0. Names such as computers.com, plasticbottle.com or coffeeandtea.com obviously do not belong to the group, but domains that look further from the plain dictionary-style could already be called web 2.0-ish.

Typical Examples:

Flickr, Google – misspelled words (flicker, googol)
Facebook, YouTube – while they are simple compounds consisting of two nouns, they had no use before the websites were established
Instagram, Pinterest – combinations of two recognizable parts of real words (instant + telegram, pinboard + interest)

Naturally, these three groups do not encompass all the possible methods of creating web 2.0 domain names. Sometimes the name could be made up from scratch (such as badoo.com) or be a real word with a metaphorical application. For example, amazon.com has essentially nothing to do with the river but the size of the Amazon is used to refer to the sales potential of the online store, which initially focused only on books. All in all, the possibilities are unlimited; you just need a bit of creativity. And of course luck.

Having clarified the essence of web 2.0 names, it would be appropriate to post an article about the simplest methods on how to generate web 2.0 domain names with the help of NameStation. Keep yourself posted!
