So you have found the perfect domain for your website but discovered it is not available? Unfortunately this happens sometimes, even with a new top-level domain like .pro. It is still more likely that your domain name will be available with a .pro extension than a .com
extension, but it is not guaranteed. IONOS understands that this is frustrating, which is why IONOS will help you find an alternative that is as close as possible to the original. This is why it is a good idea to be flexible when choosing your domain name, and to prepare a few different options in case your first choice isn't available. Because using a domain that is already being used by an existing company could cause legal issues, IONOS has created the domain checker
to protect the reputation and future of your company, and ensure you do not use another business's domain name.
