Im building a rewards site and i need a great catchy domain name please help me !:d
If you want to be found online you should start brain storming with the keywords used to search for Rewards sites and find a catchy "Keyword" related domain or 2 then decide which to register.
I use Name.com for all my domain registrations and they have a "google suggestions" feature that also shows Global monthly searches for keyword packed domains that are available to register.
Name.com is The Best registrar ever.
Gross generalisation alert - registars are all scum. The best registrar ever is like the unicorn.
And don't *ever* do your availability searches for names through a registrar's site - use an independent whois site to see if the name is available first, and if metrics are important to you use an independent research tool for looking up keyword searches and such.
Then if you want the name, register it through the cheapest reputable, ICANN-approved registrar that offers the features you're looking for (if whois privacy is important, internet.bs or namecheap might be a plus, for example).
Let me know if you choose to ignore this advice so I can look for your thread "registrar x stole the name I was looking up on their site".
Oh and on your OP, free advice - trawl through godaddy auctions, sedo, and flippa for an existing name that matches your niche and is reasonably priced; new reg's are pretty saturated and a name with history has an intrinsic value. If you can't find an existing name, check if something like mikeysrewardssite is available on a decent TLD or ccTLD.
still looking for names!
All I could really think of was: gptmagic
Separate names with a comma.
