Alternate Names

Select Alternate Names

If your first domain name choice is not available choose another alternative and register a variation of your first choice.

For example, if your business name is Mrs Granny Gardening, but mrsgrannygardening.com.au and the more obvious gardening.com.au are registered, try adding a small letter such as “e” to indicate that it’s an online business. Or add the word online. Or add your location to attract local customers:

  • egardening.com.au
  • GardeningOnline.com.au
  • SydneyGardening.com.au

Use a little creativity, and you may find your alternative beats your original choice.
Once you’ve got a list of alternatives for your online business, test them with your friends and colleagues to see which ones they like best. Make sure these names can be easily pronounced and spelled by your test audience. Then, rank them in order of popularity.
