Help me think of a domain name for personal blog

10 replies
Hey, I checked godaddy few days ago and found that rickchong.com, a domain with my name (Rick Chong) was available. Today, when I want to register that domain, it appears that someone has registered it 2 days ago. I wonder what a coincidence

Well, I'll need to think of another domain name right now. I wonder whether anyone has any good suggestions? I'm really out of idea right now

Thanks in advance!
Rick

    I'm convinced that somehow you can check what domains people have been looking at. I've lost 3 or 4 in the exact same way you just did.

    I have not checked to see the availability of these but you could try

    Rick-Chong.com

    RChong.com

    RickChongBlog.com

    RickChongSpeaks.com

    or variations like that, as well as checking out the .net and .org options.

    Some web 2.0 domains I can suggest:-

    Rickk.com
    Rickyy.com
    Rickky.com
    CRicky.com (Cricky is brandable )

  • CRicky.com is good. Probably gone by now.

    I think GoDaddy has some automated way of swiping domains when you look but don't buy. I've not had this problem with any other registrar.

    Rchong.com and Cricky.com are both taken. I wonder whether affiliaterick.com is good.

    Hi Sam, it will just be a personal journal, so I would like the domain to be personal instead of keyword-rich

    Never check a domain name at Godaddy! Ever!
    Actually, never check a domain at any registrar, for that matter.

    It is quite a common practice at many registrars to monitor the domain searches and to try to profit from them. They either register it or just put it on hold.

    On a general note: GD is not really IM-friendly, so you should consider running away from them.
