How to find domain name for blog?

If you’re not sure what to name your blog, or what topic to blog about, skip to the next section.

If you already have an idea for your blog’s name (Domain Name), you can check to make sure that someone else hasn’t already registered it:

Check if your blog name is available:

Note: You cannot use any spaces or punctuation other than dashes in a domain name.

If you find that the name you wanted is already taken there are a few things you can do:

Try a different domain extension. You may be able to get a .net or .org version of the name even if the .com version is already registered.

You add some small words like “a”, “my”, “best”, or “the”.

For example, this site can be called The activecrumb instead of activecrumb.

How to choose Blog Niche and Blog Name?

If you don’t already have an idea for a domain name, the first step is to choose your blog niche.

If you’re not sure what to blog about, there are some ways to find a good blog topic:

Life experiences. (Life Experience Blog) 

Everyone has lessons learned from life experience.

Sharing this knowledge can be incredibly helpful to others in similar situations.

For example, I recently helped a female friend of mine start her own blog about Ayurveda after she learned about it.

She has a lot of experience and knowledge to share with others about this topic, and it has helped her connect with others in similar situations.

Think about the things you have experienced in life.

It could be related to your family (example: a blog about staying at home), work (a blog about experiences dealing with clients), or other life experiences (about dealing with a troubling time like an illness. A blog about divorce, or happy times such as preparing for a wedding or the birth of a child).

A personal blog. (Personal Blog)

A personal blog is a blog about you.

This will cover a variety of topics from things you do on a daily basis to random thoughts and ideas.

This is a great way to share your ideas with the world without sticking to just one topic.
Hobbies and passions. Hobbies or other interests you are passionate about are a great place to start.

Cooking, travel, fashion, sports, and cars are all excellent examples.

But blogs about more obscure hobbies can also be successful, because your audience is literally anyone in the world with the Internet.

Once you have a theme, it’s time to choose your blog name, also known as your domain name.

A good blog name should be descriptive so that potential visitors can immediately tell what your blog is about.

If you’re blogging about a specific topic you’ll definitely want to incorporate it in some way when choosing a domain name.

Blog Domain Name Tips

However, try not to stop at just one word. For example, a cooking blog does not have to contain the word “cooking”.

The words “Food”, “Recipe” and “Tasty Food” will also tell people that your blog is about cooking.

If you plan to create a personal blog where you discuss different topics I recommend using your name or some variation of it, since your blog is about you.

For example, I have the blog activecrumb.

You can also add your middle name or patronymic if you find that your name is already taken.

Or you can use a variation like “activecrumb Blog” or “activecrumb Point Blog”.

Once you have some name ideas you need to choose a domain extension.
A .com domain extension is most preferred, but .net or .org also works.

It’s also important to note that you can’t have any spaces between words for the purposes of a blog domain.
