What to do if the domain you want is taken
Have you ever had that AHA moment when thinking of a great domain name, only to find out that it’s already taken? If you find yourself in this situation, don’t sweat!
We have millions of great domains available for everyone who’s anyone on the new web. Here are some quick tips and tricks to discovering your next web3 domain:
1. Make a small change
If the exact domain name is already taken, try a similar name. Making a simple change, such as adding in a few extra letters or numbers, can help increase the chances of success (while also reducing the price)!
2. Try another TLD
When one TLD (top level domain) doesn’t work, try the 9 others! You can choose from a variety of TLDs, ranging from .x to .nft to .wallet.
3. Check third-party marketplaces
Just in case owners put up their domain names for sale, keep an eye out on third-party marketplaces, such as OpenSea and Rarible.
Remember: there’s no such thing as a perfect domain name. Don’t get stuck spending hours trying to make your original idea work, when there are millions of great domain names out there for the taking right now!
