How to generate a unique company name and get same domain too! [Trick]

Many business owners struggle with coming up with short, unique company names because most of the time, they are unavailable for use in specific jurisdictions. In our case, we tried to acquire the company name “Epica” at first, but it was not easy, too. Then, the next problem after acquiring a short, unique company name is acquiring a domain name. Getting a .com domain for company is even more difficult as many domains are already taken up.

In this guide we will teach you a cool trick to generate a short, unique company name and ensure that a domain name (with a .com extension) is available for your Singapore company.

Generating a unique name for company - Using NameMesh
  • Go to https://www.namemesh.com/.
  • Suppose that you are selling headphones via an online portal or website; so, simply type “headphones” and press Enter.
  • The system will conduct a research. And it will present you some options which are derived from modifying the work “Headphone”.
  • AI and Mix Options are noticeable, showing the list of domain names that are still available for use.
  • Choose your preferred domain name from the list. Most probably the company name with same name will also be available in Singapore.

For example, “headphonesk,” “headphonets,” and “headphoneplus” appear to be the available domain names for the word “headphones.” Evidently, these domain names are not actual English words and they are a bit modified to arrive at something unique. In this case, you may acquire “headphoneplus” as your domain name and register a company with name Headphone Plus Pte Ltd.

Generating a Short, Unique Company Name and Acquiring a Domain Name for a Singapore Company: Why Is the .com Extension Difficult to Acquire?

Generating a unique name for company - Extension Difficult to acquire

The .com extension is a worldwide domain, which makes its acquisition as a domain name more difficult. Websitehostingrating.com says that there are over 342 million domain names incorporated across all top-level domains, and the .com extension is included in the top-level domains list.

Localizing domain names can be carried out by some business owners, depending on the policies of their home countries. However, the .com extension is not suitable for localized domain names. Here in Singapore, companies may prefer to localize their domain names by having the .sg or .com.sg extension. If you are going for a local extension then the options available increase greatly.
