Top 3 (Free!) Domain Name Generators

Finding an available domain name is getting harder and harder everyday, not only because of Domain Name Kiting, but also the huge business of domain name speculation.

Thankfully, when it comes time to register a new domain name for your business or venture, you’re not on your own. Here are three (free!) tools that will help sort through millions of available domain names and help you find the perfect one.

1. Bust A Name

The most powerful domain name search tool available.

Enter a couple of keywords, use the included thesaurus by clicking on the blue arrrow in box #2, and watch the software combine the words into dozens or even hundreds of possible variations. You choose how many words to combine, what domain name extension you want, as well as prefixes and suffixes to add to your list of keywords. You can even plurize your nouns (pant -> pants), and drop vowels (flicker -> flickr).

Best of all, once a list is generated, you can sort it by readability, length or the number of syllables.

2. NameBoy

Simply enter a primary keyword, a second keyword (optional) and specify whether you’re willing to accept domain names with a hyphen and off you go! NameBoy works on a cached database of domain names so it’s fast, but it also means once in a while a domain name you like will already be registered, so act quick!

3. 123Finder
Enter keywords to find available domain names, or browse a lengthy list of available domain names by their length. Looking 4-letter domain name? There’s 4 .com’s available, and 4383 .net’s. You can narrow down the list by only showing domain names containing or related to certain keywords, as well as whether or not they have numbers or hyphens.

Even cooler, you can find available domain names by searching against more than a dozen different dictionaries., including Italian, US Place Names,and Male/Female name dictionaries.

Bonus #4: Picky Domains

Still stuck? Get someone else to do it for you. Picky Domains charges $50 for a domain name search. Best of all, if you’re unhappy with what they come up with, you’ll get a full refund.

Think outside the box
