How to get the best domain name suggestions

Using a website name generator is a great way to gather ideas for your domain. But where do you start and how do you make sure you’re getting the most out of the results?

It’s all in the detail

The more you tell it, the better it is – it’s really that simple. Give the domain name generator as much information as possible and you’ll get better suggestions. It’s not a mind reader after all!

Choose your extension

If you already have an extension in mind, start your search by using that. This could be a generic extension, e.g. .com or, or something more brand specific, like .blog, .shop or even .pizza!


Make a list of the keywords that define your brand. Use these to refine your search for more relevant suggestions. You could also use qualifiers, like your location, type of product or industry.

What to avoid when picking a domain name

There’s a few things that are a definite no-no when it comes to creating your domain name. Luckily, we’re here to tell you what those are.

Special characters

You can’t use special characters like exclamation marks or underscores in your domain name. You can use hyphens but not as the first or last character.

Complicated words

Using hard-to-spell words or complex pronunciations just increases your chances of being forgotten. Keep it simple – it also reduces the risk of misspellings.


Numbers only confuse things in a domain. Do your visitors use digits or words? If you have to use a number, register multiple versions to cover any format variations.


Abbreviations are just another part in the recipe to being forgotten or lost. If you tell people your domain name, how are they supposed to know it’s abbreviated?

How to choose a good domain name

So you’ve got your list of suggestions, but now you need to make that all important decision –
which one do you use?

Is it memorable?

Your visitors need to remember your domain name so they’ll keep coming back. Don’t let your site get lost in the abyss of domains floating around the internet.

Look at competitors

Check out what your closest competitors' domains are. Make sure yours isn’t too similar and can’t get confused with theirs. You want to stand out in your industry.

Social media

Is the social media handle for your domain available? For consistency, it’s best to have the same handle and domain. It makes it easier to find you across platforms.

Be clear

Your domain name needs to at least hint at who you are or what you do. You’re a cake shop – great, tell visitors that. If you can make your domain your business name, perfect!

Short is best

Don’t get bogged down in keywords and details. Make your domain as concise and easy to remember as possible. Visitors won’t remember or want to type out a lengthy domain.

Say it

Say your domain name out loud. Word of mouth is a great way to promote for free. If your domain name is too wordy to say to people, you know it’s time to have a rethink.
