In The Market For A New Domain Name?

[adsense:200×200:1:3]

I’m looking to start a new business venture, and of course I’ll also be after a website, probably an ecommerce site with a blog, supporting secure downloads too. I think I’ve got that sorted with Drupal as a content management system, but it still remains to find the “right” domain name, and this could even influence the decision of what to call the company that I’m likely to form.

So where do you find a good, even a great domain name that’s not already taken or even worse, available, but at a price that you can’t afford!

This is where the guys at Picky Domains come in.

Send them $50, a bit of info about what you want , what your site is/will be about, any naming rules or conventions you want to follow, (dashes or not, for example), and they’ll send the info out to a number of domain namers who get a 50% cut of the fee if their suggested domain is picked by you.

The testimonials and example domains that have been bought through the site are evidence of a great concept executed at a simple level. If you are in the market for a new name, give these guys a go.

Great domains are darn hard to come by. Especially if you consider the fact, that there are over 10000 domainers whose only job is to find cool domain names and register them for further resale. And register they do – every single day. 70% of all registered domain names are registered to domainers.

PickyDomains.Com unites 17 domain namers from United States, Canada, Russia, UK, Australia and New Zealand, all with extensive experience of picking great domain names. Some pick domain names for over 6 years.

Here is “our method”. Each domain namer thinks about what the site does, rather than how to name it. This is how we come up with domains like DialerQueen.Com. This is a site that sells internet dialers.
