Domain name Woes & some Fantastic prefix/suffix!

August 7th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Howdy! Everyone i know have had a tough time when they went to register a domain name for their unique and million dollar “Idea”. I personally have spent hours/days/nights to come up with a fantastic domain name. Everytime i thought i had it and would search for it BAM some one had booked it years back.

I have used various tools provided by domain registering websites but never have they come up with a good or close match to what i wanted.

The worst was when .me registration begin within hours anything and everything you can think of was gone!

90% of them are squatters. I doubt i will see any .me website coming up soon. people who would/could really do wonders with that particular domain and would add value to their idea are left high and dry.

But the search goes on πŸ™‚ I still go and look for domains for my ideas and register them. Most of the times i am not lucky and have to come up with innovative ways to add some prefix/suffix and still have a cool domain.

I found this very interesting link “200 Prefixes and Suffixes for Domain Names” do check it up maybe it will ease the time to come up with a fantastic domain.

One piece of advice go and book (or any extention available) domains asap before someone else does. I am regretting not registering Sooner or later it will help. If nothing else you can put up your resume or start a blog.

Some tips are available here “12 Rules for Choosing Domain Names“.

Some sites where you can search and register your domain for cheap.

Some cheap hosting companies

Till later

    Hi Reetesh,
    I would suggest you go and buy it right away. include a .in domain of whatever you are buying πŸ™‚

    My search is never ending… every couple of days i come across an idea and the domain name hunt begins πŸ™‚ but its fun!

    I dont know.. I mean, How much would just buying the name cost me? I can just link ANY place to that domain right? I.e no need to buy a webspace for the domain.

    Any ideas where I can buy only the names and their price in general?

    and why is there no way to subscribe to comment feed via mail πŸ˜•

    Wow, thats awesome! Thanx for the offer man πŸ˜€ I have been very skeptical about buying a domain for myself since a long time, as I always wondered if I would make good use of it or not.

    And I dont get the whole ad0sense thing.. I only see it as a non-profitable venture πŸ˜•

    The suffix and prefix are good. But how about getting a related keyword instead.

    I was looking for nokiareview or nokiareviews but both were not available. Settled for nokiareviewz which still gives me 2 strong keywords in the domain name.

    (the domain name will give a little boost but without good content nothing online would sail for long…)
