Playing the Domain Name Game

Many small business owners have tried to launch Web sites, only to find that the desired .com domain name is registered to someone else. When this happens, you have a few options:

  • Contact the owner and try to buy the domain name.
  • Consider another domain name.
  • Try to keep the name, but trade the .com for another extension, such as .net or .biz. As .com domain names are growing scarce, these extensions are gaining popularity and recognition.

There are many low-cost options for domain name registration. Just visit Google and enter “domain name registration” for a list of options.
