It's not true that all the best domains have already been snatched up. Okay, so you have to dig around a little in order to find what you're looking for, but I've never failed to reveal a nice short, relevant, dot com domain on any subject.
Here's a simple, yet useful tip I've used many times to find a great domain name. Let's say, for example, you want to start a new website about diet and exercise fitness for men only. In your domain name you might want to include some relevant wording for the topic. So here's peek into what I would do:
1. Open MS Word 2. Type in a route word (in this example, I'll use 'slim') 3. Highlight the word and press keys CTRL+F7 for the thesaurus 4. Make a quick list of potential words (we'll use; slim, slender, trim, lean)
I would then take a second word and also make a short list of potentials. In this example, we'll use 'man' as the route word because the site is to be about diet and exercise fitness regimes for men only. In my short list of secondary words, i have chosen: male, blokes, chaps, and lads.
I'm now ready to play around with a few combinations. In this example, I have quickly mixed and matched the following words:
trimchaps; leanlads; slendermale; slimblokes
Now all I have to do is copy and paste them one at a time into any domain look-up tool and check their availability. In my 4 examples above, all were available domains should I have wanted to register them.
The above is just an example to illustrate just how many good, short, dot com domains there are available when you play with a couple of words. In this example, I spent a little over 15 minutes of my time and had 4 good domains to chose from should I have wanted any of them. I could have literally gone on and on finding others if I'd needed to.
Yes, all's well in this neck of the woods thanks for asking. The Earthquake in Burma recently had us running outside last week as my high rise condo felt like it had been placed on top of a bouncy castle. Luckily for Thailand there was nothing more than a scare for most in the north. Not the same good news for those in Myanmar (Burma) though
