After writing a review for a domain flipping program, I discovered that many people could not find good domain names. The same problem has many marketers and bloggers who can not find brandable domain names for their new websites. For this reason, I decided to create my first training here on Wealthy Affiliate.

Finding a good domain name for your new website is the next step after choosing your niche. While many Wealthy Affiliate members choose domain names from keywords, in some niches is not possible. Do not give up your niche. Just find another domain name.

Let’s start with some places where you can get some ideas.

I always wonder that if I'm searching for a domain name and find one I think it is good and dot.com is available, but I don't buy it right away, do you think the domain seller will than grab that name and if I go back to get it another day they will be selling it at a premium. Are domain sellers allowed to make profit selling names they think up themselves or glean from abandoned searches you think?

No I don't think they are allowed to do this. At least not the companies that specifically function as registrars. Then again I could be wrong, but it would be at least unethical because it would inflate domain prices artificially. I think ICANN would have something to say about this. But companies can register domain names so who knows...

Hi Veronica, the premium domain names are sold only by users that flip domain names. The registrars sell the domain name at their standard prices.

No, they don't do that. They are not allowed to do it.

Would a domain name representing in the singular or plural be detrimental in terms of search results? I want to do superhero merchandise. I feel something with superhero rather than superheroes would be better in the domain name.

If you can find an exact match domain name, I think that it would be better to avoid the small changes.

But if you want to find a brandable domain, choose one that you really like.

I made a domain on namecheap, about a week ago. Now I'm following your advice to have it transferred over. Namecheap is telling me I have to wait 60 days. So now I wait 2 months?

Thank you, I just wanted to ask something, all the domain names I check the value of with the appraising tools come out as $0, should I just choose one anyway? Maybe it's just my keywords...

If you can find an exact keyword in a domain name, buy it. If not, find a domain name that is easy to remember and type.

Appraising tools can help you but if you really like a domain name just take it.

For example, my domain name on "make money online" niche is http://makemoneybay.com.

The appraisal is on $110 but I did not choose it for its value.

It is easy to remember, brandable and you expect to learn how to make money when you visit it.

I would have bought it even if the appraisal was $0.

So, if you really like a domain name do not care about appraising tools.

I hope it helps.
