    • There are sites which will help but if you already have a business by that name and someone bought it to cyber squat just check - in the UK the law has changed so no more cyber squatting but in the US I know it’s different as I had this problem last year and long story but he wanted $500K for the domain name so I walked away it’s worthless to him.

      Check WHOS and email the owner directly first

    • I way to get around that if you really want the name is to take the same name and see if it has dashes in it. For example it you wanted luvrufsurf and that was taken try
      luv-ruf-surf. If the .com is taken, see if the .info or .biz or any of the others are taken. Just a thoughthappy

    • I personally would not take a .biz or a .net unless I also had the .com.  Even using dashes or variant spelling could be problematic because it's too easy for people to get it mixed up and you don't want to send them to the other site, which could be a competitor.  

      In any event, I’d tie up all three of the major endings (.com .biz .net) if the name was available.
