When it comes to finding a domain name for one's website or blog, everyone searches different examples of their different preferences, but there is no great need to make the domain an example of choice. The required and proper domain is found with the available resources.

com is a common and most popular domain, apart from this, for example org is a planned domain for an organization, almost every NGO/NPO/VO use .Org domain, (ex - Rss.org, RedCross.org etc).

There are plenty of other useful domains , such as-
.biz for a business utility
.edu for an educational institution
.net for some networking site
And so on

Apart from this, there are also geographical types of domains for a website belonging to or operated in a geographic area, for examples -
.US for the USA based website
.in for India based website
.UK for the United Kingdom based website
And so on.

People also have problem of finding unique name for their domain. In fact, this issue occurs only to those who do not have any name for their work or presentation.

The website of a company or organization will be made only with the official name of the company / organization, such as BeerMoneyForum.com, https://www.beermoneyforum.com/

Those who don't have a name should find it, as soon as you find a different name to make your exhibition stand out from the crowd, a unique name will be available for your domain.

You may discuss if you have a question that you may like.

This is a great and good article from you and see sense in it. Anyway, it's true that some people do not know the name to choose for their blog or website because they will be in confusion of the suitable name to choose. But I just know that the name should be derived from the personal name and what the blog/website stand or create for.

There are plenty of online tools that allow you to search for any domain name of your choice and see if it's available or taken already. Most of the easy and common domain names are already taken but you need to be creative if you really want to find a valuable domain name in a good price. Also make sure you don't rush it's always better to take your time when deciding which domain would be best

@Ridorz , thanks for the appreciation.
It is correct to say that if someone wants to make a personal website, then he can make it with the name according to his idea.
This also happens when a name is already taken, and as @Shahness pointed out, domain search engines can also suggest some domain names with similar names.

The most important fact in selecting a domain name for a business is that it does not matters that much if you have a strategy , a plan and a work schedule , if you lack these things you won't be able to generate money , you need quality effort to survive in the business which comes from experience and practice

With my experience in domain name. I think when choosing q domain name we should always take not of a name that has not been taken before and used on a different domain extension like choosing look and of course there is look . com but changing it to look . net. This will make it hard to be seen on front line of search engines.
But when we choose new domain name and it is searched on Google it will come up first.

The quality of your domain name is going to be very important to the kind of sales and traffic that you are going to be making. A domain name is supposed to be as short as possible and one that the person can be able to remember. It will also be something that is closely associated with the business.

While choosing a domain, one should keep the following points in mind:
1. Dose the name chosen by you make sense for your business or product?
2. Don't choose a lengthy name as your domain.
3. Domain extension is important when it comes to understanding, recognition, and popularity.

There are so many factors you need to put into consideration if you want to choose a domain name for your web page. You can make use of the purpose which you want to create the webpage to coin a domain name for the website. I have a niche website in pet niche and I use that to come up with unique domain name for the website and it was available. You can also go to marketplace like Dan, Afternic and Epik to check the brandable domain name available in your niche. Another place we can check if Brandpa.

Consider what the site is about. The domain name should be about that.

Check popular social media profiles to see if you can get similar usernames on the important ones. For example, if your domain is BlueWidgets.com, then you might check that Twitter has bluewidgets or bluewidgetscom available.

Are there similar names out there to the one you want? Be careful not to get too close to another domain that does similar things.

Your online business will determine the name you are going to choose for the website you want to set up. You can choose to abstract name together to form a new word for your website. You can also use the niche to come up with name you are going to give your website. Once you have the domain name ready, the next thing is to check if it is available on domain name registrar website. what is the name is available you can then register it instantly so that someone else will not take it.

Choosing the perfect domain name is important for a website. First make sure what should be your domain name (.com is the best in my opinion) and then you can search if your domain name available or taken. So, there are plenty of tools or sites where you can check the availability of a domain name.

I can remember getting confused when reading all the articles online about choosing domain names and it's importance.

While it's great to have a catchy name, I would say to go with one you're comfortable with. I've seen successful sites that simply use the owners name, like Neilpatel.com

You can also check domain flipping sites to see if you preferred domain name is up for sale.

This is one of the problem because many people only resale domain on very high price. Yet normal registration sites have fixed price, and you can get cheap there.

A celebrity will be catchy, so for this you first need to have popularity. But anyway if you get domain of a popular keyword, then that is different thing.

For personal use like what the poster centered on, the activities and the countries together with users' styles may determine the kind of domain to buy. However, one must becareful in buying domain. It is better to consider the end users. If the domain is too long or hard, it may not be liked by the users.

When it comes to choosing a domain name, it should be a name that reflects your kind of business, it should what people can easily pronounce, it should be what people should be able to spell,it should not have hyphen in the middle brain storm in other to have a perfect name

There is always a reason for buying flipping domain name to getting fresh domain name.
The flipping domain has already been there probably with it own traffic. You know that the longer a domain the better it becomes

I understand the fact that what you are driving at is to have a simple and easy to remember domain but having is not that bad. There are some domain that has hyphens and they are still relevant. The fact is that the character matters a lot, it must not be too long.

You are right there are domain name with hyphen and they are still relevant.
But in my own opinion it looks weird.
Comparing to the one with no hyphen. Any way it is choice and how you make your sites memorable with relevant content matters a lot.

While choosing domain names especially the ones with numbers. One must know what some numbers represent in some countries. Mostly Chinese are the ones that always use numbers and each number has a meaning. In most developed countries, anti religion words or weird names are not that welcomed
