Choosing an ideal domain name is quite difficult in modern times because so many names have already been registered that simply coming up with name combinations will usually draw a blank with all good top level domain (TLD) or generic domains already taken.
Because of this, innovative domain search tools have cropped up which can take a word or a collection of ideas and then run multiple searches for any available domains that could be registered which include the word or phrase needed. This can save much time along the way.
Here are a few tools that offer various ways to search for available domain names for registration.
Domize using an instant search approach where a new search result is update via AJAX coding as each character is entered. The search prioritizes the availability of .com, .co., .net, .org and .io domains first.
Lean Domain Search is one of the best multi word search tools. Enter a single word and it is matched will all possible combinations available across many TLDs. Enter more than one term and these are matched together with others as well.
With Domaintyper you type in the ideal domain complete with TLD and then you are presented with which domains are available. Add .co and other less popular choices. The auto update front page feature is also useful if you want to keep watching a domain that may become available soon.
Wordoid is based around the idea of creating quirky, fun or memorable names that are more of a play on words and not actual real word combinations. i.e. Wordoid which is not a real word or word combination but still manages to convey the meaning.
