2. How to quickly check domain name availability

•   This is one of our favorite tools for checking domain names.

https://Instantdomainsearch.com

If you’re tired of brainstorming and coming up with ideas for your website name, instantdomainsearch.com will show you relevant available names instantly! The site can give a false positive from time to time, so make sure to verify and search the domain you decide on with your hosting company once you make a decision. Many simple names are taken in this day and age, especially one word domains and short domains. Almost every possible single word domain will be taken as well as every combination of three letters.

 

•   Another fun option is to use

https://www.leandomainsearch.com

https://www.leandomainsearch.com uses a completely different method to show you available domain names. Instead of searching for ‘premium names’ which are more likely to be taken, you can use this tool to type in the nature of your business and it will generate a MASSIVE list of all the domain names which contain that in the url (either before or after)

That wasn’t quite clear? Go to the site and type in ‘barber’ as if you were a barbershop owner looking for a catchy domain name. The site will generate THOUSANDS of results for you to scroll through, which could save you tons of time brainstorming!

3. Tying up social handles

Once you pick a favorite, available name. It’s time to confirm that the media handles are available as well. This tool is extremely useful and will save you hours verifying handles with EACH and EVERY social media platform that you intend doing business on.
