Taking a day off from the longer type of posts, I’d just like to recommend a small tool that makes life easier. Have you ever used InstantDomainSearch.com? If not, you should start now.
InstantDomainSearch is a fantastic tool. It’s an AJAX powered domain search site—simply type in whatever domain name you want and it will check whether or not it’s available as a .com, .org, .net and so on.
It’s incredibly useful. This is actually how I came up with the name of my company. Realizing that “Nordstrom Interactive” is a rather long name for a company and perhaps hard to pronounce, I decided to shorten it.
So I simply went to the site and started typing in N Interactive letter by letter to see what the shortest pronounceable work was that was still available. I’m very happy with the result, which ended up being the seven letter name Nintera.
I highly recommend this tool and I’d like to thank the people behind it for providing it. If you find a domain name you like, please make sure to click the affiliate link to register it so that the kind people get something in return.
