Finding a domain name that does not already exist, is a challenging task

Going by the title, it is really hard to find right domain names for your blog, business or personal taste. A domain that usually comes at 10-20$ or 1500 INR, become almost 60 to 100 times the usual cost when we come to know that a domain with our desired name has already been occupied by domain leechers (second hand sellers?) And that is really disturbing to the most of us.

Recently, I had to buy three domains for a friend who needed me to do it for him. I had brainstormed a few good names in accordance to the taste of subjects, but then I came to know that those names are already occupied or are for sale at higher bids. Worst does it go when all you can do is to use a contact form and wait forever to get a reply from domain owner. I managed to get domains and have left one for now to register as and when I find a good name for it.

Thanks to my personal choices of naming things. Usually, I use names that does not seem hybrid or unlikely. I always try to use usernames, blog names and anything to be named based on the real words or the words that read like real.

Domain names on Phrases, Adjectives, Adverbs are all gone. That's the business.

Lol. Most, if not all... Anything a person planning to buy a domain name for personal, social or business interests may want is to use a word or name that already exists in people's mind, so visitors can also remember the site once they make a visit.

One of the most commonly seen domain type is a .COM domain, be it your commercial website or anything different. But if a .NET domain or .Org domain can be grabbed with our desired names, why not grab it? I mean, spending half of your project's budget on buying a domain from second hand sellers does not look good to me. The best that I feel should be done is brainstorm your mind, use some imagination and creativity and create unique domain names, than almost begging the domain owner to accept our bids and handover the domain to us. And who knows, if that uniquely named domain or brand name may become your unique global identity?

Domain Mafias

On the top of it, I am writing this post because I wanted to congratulate these domain re-sellers for running a fat business out there. No matter how it troubles the real people in need of (those domain names), you guys are doing something that has been working for you.

Since sometime, I have been experimenting what good domain names are available to be registered and it was funny that several of these names have been taken by you guys and have been put on for sale at wonderfully increased prices. Thanks to the creativity factor that exists in most of us, or having a desired name for domain would have been a dream how come true.

Should not I call you guys the real "Domain-Mafias"? No Offence.

Working on setting up another blog

Perhaps making blogs under weird, stranger names and blogging anonymously has become another hobby since quite some years. But this time, it is going to be a bit different…

Since a few days, I am working on setting up my new blog. I am busy in deciding the blog plan, rough sitemap, keywords and the sub topics that can be covered under the proposed niches.

Like always, I have thought a lot about the name of my blog…

I agree. I am a psycho in case of deciding the perfect names for my blogs, usernames and mail ids. I do not prefer writing a number or symbol even on my mail ids and if such a mail id already exists, I might move to some other name, but will not add numbers to it. The story may be different in case of writing passwords. #LOL

For the current blog, I am dreaming for a good future and my continued efforts on writing and SEO on it, once the planning and setting up phases gets over.

Beginning with a very limited budget…

Because most of my blogs have been hobby based and on free blogging platform, I never need a serious budget to continue my blogging work. But this time, things are different. I am planning for a website, but working on a weblog… so I am trying to limit the niches I will consider.

I really want this blog to bud and grow well with time. But as I mentioned, I have a very limited budget and things will not be changing anytime soon. I will be keeping its name and my name a secret for some time, so any number of advertises and funds may not be there.

I believe real, quality Content is the real Search Engine Optimization (SEO)…

One good faith that I have developed from my experience till right now when I am writing this text is: “Content is the initial and final trick to SEO”. Search Engines point to your blogs only when there are posts with serious amount of correct content inside. That is how I will be working on my next blog once it gets launched. I will take care to update it as much as possible with my resources never being less than 1000 words for most of the times. 

(I am automatically good at researching a lot, then thinking a lot and then writing a lot. Some ‘pretending to be’ experts are found saying to keep the word limit below 1500 words or 2000 words. But I cannot help it every time. When I am dedicated a lot, I will write a lot. I needed, I might split the article into two good parts, as suggested by the same group of experts).

I am expecting a lot from my next blog and I just wish that may it get launched soon and work well ahead. If you are reading this text, you can please send a free wish for the growth of my blog to your God, because I believe prayers are heard by Him.
