Start by selecting your Website domain name (www.yourcompany.com). Enter the name you would like to use below, and see if it is available.
WWW. .

Don't get discouraged if your first choice is taken. The Internet is a huge place, and it is likely that someone else may have already thought of your name. Here are a few tips that may help you:

Tips for Choosing Your Domain Name:

  • Use your company name if possible instead of a "slogan" name, like bestprice.com.

  • Try adding a dash. For example, mycompany.com may be taken, but my-company.com may be available.

  • Consider using .NET instead of .COM. The .NET extension used to be reserved for Internet Service Providers and other network providers, but now it is more common for other businesses to use the .NET extension. Even though mycompany.com may not be available, it is likely that mycompany.net will be available.

  • Try .BIZ This is a newer extension. Many good names are still available. It works just like .COM anywhere in the world and is intended for business websites.

  • Shorter names are preferred. This tip won't help you find a name, but it will help your customers and your marketing department. Try to avoid using long names like www.InterGalacticPropulsionIncorporated.com. A name like igpinc.com may fit easier on your stationery.
