I don’t know if everyone is like this or not.
But, I am the kind of guy, who’d be more than happy to spend weeks on finalising logo, but when it comes to come up with a domain name for new blogs, my mind goes blank ( I go well with finding brand names ).
It has happened multiple times. I finalised niche, theme and everything.
Then, I realised I need to get a new domain name and simply nothing came in my head.
Now, if this sounds a tad bit relatabled, this post would quite helpful for you. I’ve curated a list of 9 blog domain name generators. I suggest, that you open all of these in new tab from the table below, and then enter your root keyword or some industry word to start your domain hunt.
Quick Navigation :
Wordoid defines itself to produce “made up words”, that sounds great. They’re phonetic, i.e, easy to pronounce. Overall, they work great for naming your new brand blog.
The best part of using the synthetic name is that they don’t have any meaning, so, there’s no obligation to stick to a particular niche. You can give whatever meaning you prefer. The tool is capable of generating wordoids not only in English but also in French, Italian, Spanish and even German.
- You can choose between the 5 available languages. There’s also an option to try and mix these languages in order to create a totally different and unique word.
- Although I didn’t expect a quality option in a blog name generator, wordoid offers one. The more high quality a word is, the more real they will sound and appear to the language they’re generated from. The reason I didn’t expect a quality option in a name generator is that, why does a tool need to generate a low-quality name in first place? But, the option still is great. You can select high, medium or low.
- Pattern. If you’re looking forward to purchasing partial matching domains i.e domains that have a part of your keyword in them, you’d have to play around with this option. You can choose to enter a keyword to be included either in end or in the beginning. If you leave the field blank, it’ll come up with random words.
- The last option is the length. You can configure it to get results which are five to fifteen words long. If you find a cool word, you can purchase it straight.
2. Lean Domain Search
A lot of people find it very difficult to find a domain name. The process gets confusing and irritating as more and more domain you check is taken. This is where lean domain search proves to be useful. The tool aims at finding cool domain names that haven’t been taken yet. It skips the non-sense and jumps straight to pinpointing a great domain quickly.
A lot of people prefer PMds, i.e, partially matching domains. Some have one, or two keywords in the blog’s name. The tool lets you input one keyword and generates potential domain names.
For example, I wanted to build a theme review blog, so I entered theme into the search bar, and it came up with 3k results in 1.5 seconds. Needless to say, the theme is a very crowded industry, and finding a good domain could be a bliss. The time, and performance of this tool were amazing.
- Keyword: You can choose to have your keywords either at the start or at the end of the result.
- Extension: Although dot com is extremely popular, there are tons and tons of other extensions that are equally cool. But, since it is most commonly used, LDS searches for this extension itself.
- Customize results: You can filter by length and alphabets. This allows you to find a more suitable name for your blog.
- Availability: A lot of people use these tools, a lot of people might even have the same ideas as you and so they’re being purchased all the time. If you find a good name, do a domain availability check by clicking on it. The tools also check if the domain is available on Twitter.
- Shop: If you first want to prepare a list and then purchase the best one, you can bookmark domain ideas for convenience.
3. Name Mesh
Name mesh, much like other domain name provider, generates suggestions based on random options, SEO, and common domains. It also has a convenient option which you can turn on to filter domains that are already registered so it hides domains that have been already taken by someone.
You’re given choices that are filtered on a number of factors. The name generator has a database of tons and tons of words that it uses to generate unique domain names.
Users can also add special characters in order to modify results.
- Common : This tab displays mainstream top-level options like dot org, net, and com.
- Similar : This tab lets you find domain names that are based on antonyms, synonyms, related words, thesaurus entries and much more.
- New : This tab shows your new top-level extensions that have just launched, like .link, .email and .desi and so on.
- SEO : These suggestions are for people who’re looking for a PMD and want their keyword to be in the domain at all cost.
- Short : I personally love short domains. This tab is designated to contain domains that are short (and sweet)
- Fun : Another tab that modifies the keyword in order to produce brandable options. This is done possibly via phonetic variation, slight spelling mistakes, merged portmanteaus etc.
Name Mesh also has an extra and mix tab that display results from other tld and mixed words.
4. Domains Bot
