How to pick good domain name for a Forum?

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by specifics, Apr 5, 2016.

    I need some help with picking a right domain name for my forum.
    Are there any general rules for picking a good domain name?
    SEMrush
    My plan so far is:
    Searching for domain with .com extension
    Not going to use name with dashes or numbers


    Looking forward to your advice.

    Just combine keywords in the domains generator: IT, Internet, forum, talk etc. And scan for free. Definitely any of the free like. I'm so looking for names for my startups

    Not for that. In the future, you can look for a domain name in generator in whic.ru. For .com domainis suitable freeware version http://whic.ru/en/free/download

    What if I put "forum" as a subdomain, for example: forum.niche.com?

    That's also a good idea. But most probably the niche you have selected will be already bought in .com so you have to make some additions to that niche. If you are searching for suggestions for keyword internet technologies then:
    MyInternetTechnologies.com
    InternetTechnologiesOnline.com
    InternetTechnologiesWorld.com

    Hello, it is very good question! You must say what is your site about? It is very important for your domain name! Also, you can use copywriting for it! For example: if your site about sport, your domain name can be (healthylife, or sportbody)! Try to be more creative! I think you can do it very well)

    supercompuglobalhypermeganet dot com heheheheh.

    Maybe something like YourtopicMojo.com ? YourtopicTips.com ? look for catchy short names, don't be attached to keywords. Read about naming, maybe you can find good ideas here: http://eatmywords.com/tips/is-your-name-lame/

    Good luck in the art&science of naming.
