Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
My only problem is that they are both unnamed.
I need a domain, a catchy, fun domain that kinda says what the websites about, a brandy kinda name. I'm not even concered about keywords in the domain.
I have spent atleast 2/3 hours a day for the last week searching for a domain. Even domains that are just "okay" that I would "settle" to use are taken..i'm going insane.
Maybe I'm just not that good with naming a website.
In the past I have managed to come up with domains but not recently - have we come to the point of having to dig into our pockets for a decent domain name?
How long does it take you to find a domain name for a large project?
I usually take less than 30 minutes to get a domain name (maybe not very good).
Yes, this is very difficult to get a good domain name. However you can still find tons of good domain names if you consider domain extensions other than .com and .net. I recently registered some really good .cn domain names. The price is usually under $1.00.
For brainstorming sessions, I recommend espresso, thesaurus.com, and a couple of right-brained friends (but only one at a time). Keep a list of name candidates, and only check for availability after you're done brainstorming.
We registered about half a dozen options along the way, most of which were available but the one we ultimately used we purchased.
Oh, and whatever price they want for the domain name, I recommend dividing by 4 and start from there. Be sure the email address you use isn't traceable to anything big or prosperous-sounding.
