Top Tools for Domain Name Brainstorming

It’s getting even harder to make of a good short relevant domain name. Hence the web-based tools allowing you to find one are numerous. This time I will review mostly the ones that check the domain name availability dynamically and also provide you with some tips to advance your search.

Dynamic domain name availability checkers are the best choice for 2 reasons:

  • they are fast and fun to use;
  • they might save your newly found domain from being stolen from you (as their is no record of your searches).


PsychicWhois – covers a wide variety of TLDs (.com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, .us) and provides a lot of alternative domain name suggestions based on your previous searches and related terms.

Domize – shows information on domain names availability one-character shorter than the one specified (covers 3 TLDs: .com, .net, .org).

Domize - domain search

BustAName – gives the widest range of available options: it mixes the given keywords, gives synonyms for each one, adds prefixes and suffixes, shows both singular and plural versions, drops last vowel, checks for both hyphen- and non-hyphen versions. The tool dynamically checks for 3 top level domains: .com, .net and .org.




Suggest Name is not a dynamic one but it is surely worth mentioning for providing and interesting tool for generating huge keyword-based domain name list: it has a fairly large database of available prefixes and suffixes that are sorted out in the following categories:
  • tech-related;
  • web 2.0;
  • colors;
  • places; etc.
