Where to Buy a Cool Domain Name

You can buy domain names from a plethora of registrars for example GoDaddy.com, register.com, HostGator.com, or Eclectic-Systems.com. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is responsible for managing the Internet Protocol address spaces and assignment of address block to regional Internet registries, and for the management of the top-level domain (TLD) name space. A TLD is one of the domains at the highest level in the hierarchical Naming system for Domain on the internet. For example, in the domain eclectic-systems.com, the top-level domain is com or COM since they are not case-sensitive.

Now, let's have some fun and obtain a cool domain name. Go to a site such as eclectic-systems.com scroll down and click the link Eclectic-Systems Store Front for Domain Names. In the new window, click in the Start domain search box and type fundomainnames and click enter. Don't worry about adding the TLD since the site will return a list of available names with TLD's. The list of names will be associated with several TLD's like.net,.org, or.gov choose one or all of the names that you want to buy and click the continue to registration button. In most cases, you'll be asked to create a user account and then you'll be required to pay for your new cool name. Unless, the domain name is a premium name the cost will usually be less than $20.

You should strongly consider purchasing several TLD's if your site becomes popular other people will attempt to obtain your new cool name with another TLD. Once someone purchases the name you will need to buy it from them.
