    I have herd of stuck domain but now I am excited to know there are a bunch others I can try.

    in this day and age people want to have their company name as the URL when if they could get a domain name that would best match up with what they do ie:

    professional-graphic-design.com instead of nopun.com what is and who the hell is nopun!

    wow maybe I should take a look at these sites for myself…

    Thanks and Regards

    Once in a while these services will come up with a false positive. It’s a good idea to cross check the results with a whois lookup to confirm that the domain is truly available.

    It’s actually amazing how much relevancy value Google attributes to a website’s domain name. It’s extremely difficult competing again exact match domain names even if you have a diverse backlink profile. Thanks for the post though, I’ve been looking for a tool like Domize for a long time.

    Cheers.
