    Getting one now adays is problem i find, mainly in the .com as 98% of ones ive searched for are taken and are just parked search engines
    I emailed a guy about buying www.gamersonline.com and as per normal they want $6500.00 USD. Anyone else looking for a domain thats taken that you really want?

    bicycle.com

    I had the chance about 3 years ago to buy it for $2500, I really wish i would have, worth much much more then that to me, the new owners want 10x's as much! Grr

      I did want TeenAdviceForum.com but it was taken... so now I have TeenAdviceCenter.com, which is a lot better now.

      I should have just done www.teencenter.com though...

        $2500 is cheap for a one-word generic domain name like that.

          I know, it was REALLY bad timing, I was going into surgery the next month, and wouldnt have a job for 6 months after. I really wish I could have put that on my Visa or something! Oh well...

              Yeah, my surname loh.com was going for $8,500 3 years ago - sure, it's a 3 letter dot com, but I ain't paying for that. Don't know how much it is now.

                Back in 1995 when I first got online, I was going to register eyescream.com for my personal (blog like) site. That was the name of my "bike club" at the time. I REALLY wish i got that domain, its just a fun name. But it is in good use now. I also rememer talking on IRC in 95 - 96, and telling people i was going to register blah.com, but never did so, another somewhat unique name to own.

                    make up a name, then brand it. ie, amazon.com, yahoo.com, google.com...

                    You dont hear much about books.com, directory.com or searchengine.com do you?

                      Yeah i know, problem is it's hard to come up with an easy one to say in real life and people know how to say it. I came up with one, but i dunno how good it is.

                      I Need to come up with one that is easy to say, spell and remember and can be said in real life and people will remember it, since i do alot of real life advertising

                        My site used to be called forums4games, had that name for a year and then noticed that f4g.net was about to expire, kept an eye on it and managed to pick it up for £10, was really pleased with that. But its just sitting on my server unused at the moment

                          Honestly, just my opinion, but why does it have to be .com?

                          I just do not get it. I can understand to some extent for the resale peoples - but if you are building a content site what does it matter? I have no problem what so ever with sportsforum.ws or any of the other hundred or so .ws I have. Heck I like most of my .ws better than all my .com except maybe MyFFL.com

                          And I just checked, OnlineGamers.ws and GamersOnline.ws are both unregistered.

                          I did a search for game first to see what the suggestions would be, and to me just getting a good easy to remember name is the important part, they can remember the .ext easy enough, heck I would rather have a .ws or .cn or something than .org or .biz as those are somewhat easy to forget (for me anyway, I sit there typing in .com, .net, then try .org on .orgs but always remember the country ones)

                          Here is some of the suggestons for "game"
