I am launching a car review and presently torn between choosing a catchy name for the domain.

What strategy do members here use to choose a catchy name please.

There are several online tools to help pick domain names. Note that most are free, but at least one is paid, and there are probably more like that. Anyway, with the free ones, though, is the chance that they won't allow using all extensions.

Oh, by the way, if these domain finding tools won't work, you can always mess around with GoDaddy or NameCheap. Those websites will sometimes give you little hints when you search for domain names on them. Also, another advantage they have is the fact they will go thru most extensions. For instance, you could find the a good combo for .club or .xyz - in addition to ones for .com or .net.

I would just google expired domains and most of the sites have tools to search just expired domains with filters like one or two words, whether to include numbers of specials characters and so on. It will surely help you get a domain with catchy name.

You can get good word combination for your business.With a little time on "namemesh" I bet you'll get a name that's just fine.Remember, don't make it too long and boring.Just a cute and direct name will do.If possible avoid adding numbers to it too.

I think nothing can be as good as coming up with a name by yourself. Catchy names come from being creative

First of all, look at the domain names of your competitors. What kind of domain names they are using? Take inspiration from their domain names.
Secondly, identify your primary keywords. Use at least one keyword.
Thirdly, plat with one of two keywords. If dot com is not available, look for other extensions such as dot net, dot info etc. If the these extensions are already taken for your chosen domain name. Try new TLDs such as dot club, or even dot auto.

Thanks. I have actually tried typing names on godaddy. The namecheap you mentioned gave me another dimension to it. Thanks once again.

I think you need to look at the most popular domains and deduce from that why are they so popular maybe it is because of their good name? If so think why this name is so good, maybe it's catchy or maybe it just well represents content that you can find on the actual website. Either way good luck in finding a good name for your website!

I came with up my own blog name by being creative.I think a name comes out better when we take the initiative of being creative with our blog or forum name.

If you can't seem to make headway with no1,then use the tools online to get one.

Thirdly,browse the popular hosting sites like damainking et all to get a name.

Try and choose something short or memorable that has to relate with your business. Take inspiration from other websites, but obviously don't copy them directly. Alliteration or rhyme can make something that's more easily remembered.

Domain name which you will choose should clarify the purpose of your site to visitors. So you should choose the name which will clarify that purpose of your website is to provide car review to users.

It should not be too long to remember. Domain name should be short and simple.

Sometimes, even if a domain is already registered, an owner may be willing to part with it. It doesn't hurt to reach out to the owner of a desired domain name to see if they want to sell it to you, especially when you notice there is no website developed on the domain.

For organization use, the domain name has to be relevant to the organization or brand name. Putting your commonly used keyword in the domain name could work as well.
Just make sure the domain name is short in length. You do not want to make it hard for potential customers to visit your site by typing lengthy domain names.
