Handy domain name research and suggestion tools

November 19, 2006 by  

I have previously written about how to choose domain names to register.

Pretty much any domain name registrar Web site has a recommendation tool. I want to highlight two research tools I really like:

PC Names Domain Search — “A free site dedicated to developing the most advanced tools for finding domains”

PC Names has a clean interface and uses AJAX to display available domain names in real time as you type. You can search on available dictionary words, 3 letter domains, 4 letter domains. You can also allow it to recommend alternate keywords (a thesaurus-like function).

ABAKUS KeywordDomain — “Save time finding that ideal keyword rich domain name”

Abakus allows the user to enter up to four keywords for various Top Level Domains (TLDs), then generate domain name suggestions.

Both allow WhoIs lookups without annoying challenge mechanisms that require you to type in text from a randomly displayed image.

Definitely check out these domain name tools the next time you are brainstorming domain names. They can save you a lot of time and aggravation.

I hope you find these useful.
