Easy and fast domain search with IONOS
How to find free domains with IONOS
The best domain names are the ones that define what your site is and what it does. You can use the IONOS domain checker to find the right name and ensure that it's easy for potential visitors or customers to locate you. For example, if your site sells ballet shoes, you would want your domain name to clearly indicate this, guaranteeing that those searching for ballet shoes would find you and visit your site. If your domain name is too vague or complex, potential customers may skip over your site, thinking it's irrelevant to their search.
In addition, as the world wide web grows bigger with each passing year, you want to ensure that your site can be found amongst all the others that are competing for attention. IONOS can check your domain to see if it has already been taken and which names are still free for you to register. Finding the right domain name should be your first step when constructing your site, as in many ways it is the most important one. Let IONOS help you get it right.
All you need to do is visit 1and1.com and type a potential domain name into the checker. The IONOS check will immediately see if the domain name is free for you to register and also provide you with other possible top-level domain names (TLDs) if your initial choice is not for sale. In addition, it will display the domain names that may have been occupied in the past but are now free for you to register.
With over 700 new domain extensions, it's never been easier to find and check the domain name that best sums up what your site has to offer. With only a few keystrokes and a click of the mouse, IONOS will immediately check whether the domain name you want is free or not. It's that quick and easy. However, don't forget - you aren't the only one searching for the perfect domain name. Use the IONOS domain check today and secure your ideal domain before someone else does!
The first thing you can do is think about changing the TLD. This is the part of the URL at the end: for example .com, .net, .org. So if your desired domain name was balletshoes.com and you find that this is already taken, you can try balletshoes.org or balletshoes.net. The IONOS domain check will automatically generate your desired domain name with new TLDs if your first choice is already taken.
If these are also not available, or you have your heart set on one particular TLD, then you can think about adapting your original domain name. Having to rethink your domain name shouldn't be seen as a problem and, in fact, it may lead to a spark of inspiration that helps your chosen domain name to really stand out.
