If you want your web site to have an added advantage in the search engines, think of a domain name that includes keywords visitors would search for in the main search engines.
If possible, keep your domain name short so it is easy to spell and easy to remember. Take into account someone may remember the name but forget there is a hyphen in it and you then miss out on those potential customers.
If the dotcom or dotcoza name is not available, try the other new abbreviations such as .ORG, .BIZ, .US, .INFO, .TV. These are not as popular as .COM, but you may get closer to the name you want.
Select the type of domain you would like to check.
Local Companies (.co.za) You will be taken to Uniforum SA to check the domain name availability
Local Charities, NGOs, Section 21 companies or Similar (.org.za) You will be taken to the ORG.ZA site to check the domain name availability
International (.com/.net/.biz/.info) You will be taken to Network Solutions to check the domain name availability
