Who are you as a person?
Now we don’t want to start any existential crises or anything, but that question is sometimes not so easily answered. So when you go to register yourname.com only to find it’s already taken, it can seem like the proverbial end of your internet world.
But it’s ok, take a breather. With so many New Domains coming out each week, there are more options than ever before to get a domain extension that is relevant to you, your interests, or your expertise. There are so many options, in fact, that there may be a New Domain out there that is perfect for you—you just don’t know it yet.
Our amazing team has been working tirelessly on a search interface that recognizes when you search for a first name-last name domain on Name.com. So if your name is, say, Joe Smith and you type that search into Name.com’s main search page, you might see a message like this one giving you the option to enter our customized web identity search experience:
How is the web identity search different from a regular search, you ask? We’ve curated a list of domain extensions that work well with first name-last name URLs—some of which you may not have even known were an option. To make it even easier, we’ve even divided these New Domains into categories that you can add or subtract to your search criteria. So if you’re all about sports and fitness, but politics isn’t your thing, you can include and exclude them from your search results respectively.
Even though the web identity search tool is pretty great at figuring out if you’ve searched for a name, it doesn’t recognize every first name-last name query that’s entered. So if you’re like me with a not so common last name (what up fellow Chowdhurys), the option to enter web identity search might not pop up when you type your name into the main search engine. If that’s your case, but you still want to try out the tool, no problem! Just use this link to access our web identity search.
