Yesterday I had lunch with a friend and we got into the typical domain name searching discussion. My friend’s friend was starting a new company and having a hard time coming up with a name. In addition to my previous domain name searching tips, I had a few new ones to add:
- Find a few technology companies that list their customers and take words from the customers’ names and plug them into BustAName.com.
- Add colors or numbers to go with a word (remember to not have more than two words for a total length of 10 letters or less). As an example, the domain jetblack.com would be cool, but the asking price on sedo.com is $450,000. Only 20x overpriced, but I digress.
- Use sedo.com to search the domain name marketplace and include the following in your search: only .com extension, exclude hyphens, numerals, and IDN, and finally sort by bids (important!).
What else? What are some other tips for finding a good domain name?
