I tried a lot of domain name suggestion tools but these are some of the best ones that are easy to use and give you a wide range of ideas for your next website.
NameTumbler is an excellent domain name suggestion tool and my personal favorite because it is a complete solution to my needs. I personally like this one because it’s easy to use.
Just insert your keyword and choose the category for which it should combine the word with. In no time you will have a huge list of ideas to choose from.
The only thing that it’s missing from this awesome tool is an option to check the availability of the generated ideas.
I usually use instantdomainsearch for this and it works great.
This one is a little different because it doesn’t just combine a keyword with other words, it usually suggests some cool ideas.
You also have the option to register them and it conveniently shows if they are either available or taken.
So, there’s no need to use other tools to check the availability.
Nameboy Is a domain name suggestion tool that lets you insert a primary keyword and a secondary one, after which, it will generate a few ideas based on those keywords.
It will also show you if they are available or taken, by displaying a green or red color.

Leandomainsearch is by far the simplest domain name suggestion tool to use.
All you have to do is to insert a word and Leandomainsearch will automatically suggest a wide range of ideas for you.
As usual, you can see if the domains are either available or taken and you can even register them.
This is another great generator which combines your chosen keyword with a list of popular adjectives, nouns, and verbs.

Where to register your domain?
The hardest part was to come up with a cool name. Now, it comes the easy part: registering it. But where?
There are a lot of registrars to choose from. Here are some of the best places to register a domain:
- Namecheap is my favorite registrar at the moment, as it offers cheap domain names, great support, and free 1 year WHOIS privacy for any new registration.
- Godaddy is another registrar that offers cheap registrations and lots of discounts and offers.
