How to Choose a Domain Name

The problem with registering domain names isn’t the registration process. They’re fairly inexpensive, and easy to register. The problem is that all the good names and addresses are already taken. Finding a decent one is sometimes a bit of a challenge. This is the reason I have created this new site – to help you find possible names for the perfect site for you!

This site is exceedingly easy to use. Give it a web address (news article, blog post, etc). The site will scan that web page, pull out two random words, and slap a .com on the end of the words. It will tell you whether or not the address is available. It will even ask you how many results you want!

If a site is already registered, there will be a large red X next to the result. If it’s not, there will be a link you can click to take you to a page that helps you buy it for yourself! All you have to do is plug in any address that exists on the web that deals with the topic matter you’re looking at creating a site for. How much easier can it get?

This is great to help you save time while trying to come up with the best possible name for your new venture. It will also save you the headache you’ll get from brainstorming for hours on end trying to think up something unique. Take a moment and check out our domain thinktank for yourself.

100 Seats Left at Gnomedex

Oh boy. I just checked registration numbers, and we’ve only got 100 seats left – and I haven’t even accounted for a few people. If you were planning on coming, register today. I can’t make exceptions folks – the main room at Bell Harbor can only seat 300 people. If you’re registrant #301, you’ll become a “Cove” Gnomedexer – experiencing Gnomedex from another room. That said, every attendee had a wonderful time last year – many of them returning for this year’s event. We’re going to be sold out before too long…
