When shopping for a domain name
Consumed => “How to Brainstorm a Great Business Name” by Emily Heyward on Entrepreneur.
Moi? I’d be a bit concerned about being that out in the open with the process. A name becomes a domain name; and a domain name is something someone can snatch up quicker than you can say “let’s meet virtually again tomorrow.”
That being said, when it gets down to domain names, buy first filter them out later. Blink and the one you love can be gone.
Finally, never EVER search for domain names in your browser’s URL bar. Domain request that come up “not found” are often compiled by access providers. Those lists are in-turn sold to other “interested parties” who are looking for domains to squat.
What’s in a name? A lot, agreed. Therefore consider it your first official piece of IP and conduct yourself appropriately.
