I've been looking for a name (url) for my site but can't find one I really like (and is not taken). It will be about self improvement. Anyone a good idea?

Not a good idea to discuss specific domains.

1. Someone might rush out and register it.

2. The forum's Charter prohibits discussing specific URLs, to avoid spamming, etc.

What I'd suggest is that you read the forum's old posts about what makes a good domain a good domain, what makes a domain a good brand, etc.

For example:

  • short, not long (fewer letters to type)
  • easy to recall
  • easy to say on the phone
  • on topic, perhaps an industry keyword

You might start by looking here: [webmasterworld.com...]

If you want a good domain then your probably going to need to visit a domain for sale site. Just enter "domain for sale" in a popular search engine. There are only 5 major web sites that sell domains. They aren't that expensive and its worth buying a good one if your going to spend time developing a real web site.

I recommend Sedo.com, Afternic.com, GreatDomains.com and <snip>. The sites are free for buyers, except Afternic which charges a small membership fee for both buyers and sellers.

Sedo and Afternic have the biggest collection of domains for sale and you will also find cheap domains. GreatDomains.com specializes in the sale of premium domains. Here you will find very good, but expensive domain names.

In addition, you can also try eBay.com to look for a domain to buy. Anyway, there are many crappy domains being sold at eBay.

I wish you success in finding a domain to fit your needs.

Find a good 404 finder that allows you to paste links to sites that have a bulk of links relevant to your topic.
It will take a while, but you should find one.
If you need a 404 finder I know of one : )
