Choosing the right domain name for your business/project has many implications not just for branding but also for seo. Of course coming up with the name is only half the battle. Currently, there are over 127 Million domain names (92 Million are .com) and growing, which makes finding a domain that is actually available often times a royal pain in the a-s-s.
Here are three of my favorite tools that will help make your domain name search easier:
1. Instant Domain Search – an incredibly simple, real-time search tool that shows availability instantanteously for .com, .net and .org domains.
2. Domainr – use this if if you’re looking for something more creative and want to explore very clever short URL options.
3. Domjax – another simple, free domain search tool that also provides information site information.
