friend has a common company name and we're trying to think of what .com domain options we'd have using generic words like (ie. mynameglobal, mynameco, mynameinc, mynamecorp, mynameworldwide, etc)
any other ideas of words to find internet real estate without having to change the name you incorporated as?
it gets tougher when you don't want numbers, dashes, or .net,.ort, etc either :/
tried to find some of those gimmicky name generators but they didn't really provide anything useful.
I guess the best variation would be something that describes what the company does
i.e. mynameinteractive or mynamewidgets or mynamedrugdealing
How about dropping vowels
yeah, the problem is that those narrow the focus or scope and this company offers a pretty wide range of services so it would be preferable to stay generic and broader in scope.
interactive is broader, so that is along the lines of what we're after
we discussed it, but felt it was too web 2.0-ish for what we're after. we'd probably opt for dashes to get the real estate rather than taint the brand
Incorporating a company before seeing if the domain (or an appropriate alternative) is available, seems a tad presumptuous.
give us the company name and let us at it!
add a humorous supplement to the company name. something memorable.
watch the repeating vowels and possible word collisions .. depends on the last letter in your company name....
like.... the Italian Power Generator company,
ViaGrafix.com (Long-established graphics site, abandoned because of Viagra)
....is this a startup? if so, they're INCOMPETENT if they didn't check for the domain name availability before they named the company....
The customer-facing service/product name doesn't really have to be the same as the company name. How about finding a good unique name for the service?
I recently did a logo for a guy whose name was X but the domain was Y. The name of the company focuses on the difference (X) while the url focuses solely on the service (Y).
