Domain Name Suggestions for Startups

domain name suggestions

Domain name suggestions and ideas that entrepreneurs came up with five years ago, were mostly based of keywords but that all changed as domain name prices went up.

Majority of domain names back in the days would start like: moneymaking, bloggersphere or b2bcompany and nowadays you have popular sites like etsy,bitly,zappos,moz which are easy to remember domain names.

What changed?

Most companies today want their domain names to be short (preferably under 10 characters) , easy to remember (2 words max) , catchy (something easy to pronounce and spell) and memorable (flippa — flipping something).

About 5-6 years ago Google, Bing and other Search Engines started to change how their search algorithm works, therefore keyword domain names stopped ranking better than domain names like etsy.

Naturally startups started to adopt domains that are short and easy to remember that have some meaning to it and domain extensions like .io. That is all because .com/.net are mostly gone or cost a lot of money.

Domain brokers like us can easily find thousands free to register domain names, because they know the market and they know what is currently trending.

Domain Name Suggestions
