Finding a good domain name is really hard. When you have a great idea for a website; the first thing you do is rush to a registrar and attempt to buy the perfect domain for it. Naturally, your first choice it’s taken. Don’t worry though; you had a couple of backup names just in case, right? But they’re taken too. Damn. A search for .org and .net variants yield similar results. Before you begin the requisite cursing, check out Domainr.
Domainr is a domain name search engine. You can type any domain or text string into the search box and Domainr will automatically check the availability of all domains related to your input. It will check top-level domains, international domains and even generate domain hacks.
Nothing is perfect
Domainr is incredibly helpful, but it suffers from a bunch of really irritating issues. Most annoyingly, it sometimes displays impossible domain names in its results. This includes extensions that cannot be registered outside the country that operates it, extensions that are yet to be approved by ICANN and domain names that are too short.
