A domain suggestion tool for .COMs and .NETs added to the search form

Domain suggestion tool in the search formDespite the growing number of TLD alternatives, .COM and .NET are still the online standard for both business and personal sites.

According to VeriSign, a new .COM domain is being registered nearly every second and almost 95% of the 5-character .COM combinations are still available. However, laying hands on а .COM or .NET name that best conveys the message of your site may be a challenge.

This is where the domain suggestion tool has proven useful and you can now take advantage of this functionality on our platform.

What is the domain suggestion tool about?

The domain suggestion tool is aimed at helping you select the best domain name for your site by offering a list of suggestions based around the keywords that you have specified in the domain registration form.

The tool is only applicable to .COM and .NET domain names and is deploying the VeriSign-developed Advanced Language Technology. It uses next-generation linguistic methods to sort and split a domain search query into the most likely concepts, and scours content from thousands of online sources every few minutes to incorporate the latest trends and topics into the suggestions it provides, so users can expect the most appropriate and creative site name ideas.

The suggestions given could be of help in two ways:

  • to give you an alternative when the keyword combination you want to register is unavailable;
  • to give you better ideas of how the keywords should be combined in your domain, which also includes adding some new well-ranked keywords, which may make you change your mind about the initial domain name choice and go with one of the suggested alternatives;  

How does the domain suggestion tool work?

When you conduct a domain search, right next to the regular search results, you will see a tab named ‘Domain Suggestions’:
