That being said, to search for your next domain name there are many options. I typically start my searching and Domain.com. To be honest they’ve been around forever and I like their search layout. I would recommend you use the domain search tool until you find something that works. Then go to 1&1 and purchase the name. 1&1 has most names for $5.99/yr.
If you’re not having much luck using the standard domain name search tools, you should check out JustDropped.com. With the JustDropped engine you can search recently expired domain names. Choose to search by keywords to narrow the results. You can even look forward to search domains that may become available soon. Another choice for expired or soon to be expired domain names is DeletedDomains.com. With this tool you can purchase a membership for about $14.99/mo and have deleteddomains.com email you updates on your search criteria and they will display tomorrow’s expired names.
If you still have not had luck in finding the perfect domain name, try Afternic.com. This helpful tool has been around since 1995. Afternic helps people buy and sell domain names. For buyers, try their advanced domain search. Here you can search the 2 million plus domain names that Afternic has for sale every day. You can search by extensions, price, length, and even previous unique visits each month.
