Frequently Asked Questions:
  1. How can I choose the perfect domain name?

    It is usually best to select a short, easy-to-pronounce domain name that quickly describes your brand and services. While .com is the most common domain extension, there are many gTLDs that will help tell the story of your brand more clearly. Before you register, search for other companies that may have a trademark on the terms, or have a similar name already in use. Learn more about choosing the perfect domain name.
  2. How do I use the personal domain name search tool?

    To get helpful suggestions using this domain name search tool, start by entering your first and last name in the required fields. We will then search our database for unique personalized options that incorporate your name. Results typically include domain names that are immediately available, as well as a few that are taken and may be for sale in our marketplace. Whois information is provided for personal domain names that have already been registered.
  3. Why does a particular domain that is taken show that it is available for registration?

    Registered domains can always be transferred to a new user if the current registrant is willing to sell it to you. While the process of obtaining a new, unregistered personal domain name is much easier, and frequently cheaper, we want to present as many options as possible to Namecheap customers.
