    After thinking about starting an online business I feel that starting a domain reseller site for domain registration and hosting would be ideal. The reason I believe it would be ideal is because I always get asked by friends and strangers what I do for a living and the first thing I usually say is that I buy and sell domain names. Immediately after I say that about 99% of the people I tell this to respond by saying how interesting that is and follow that by asking me how do I buy domains? I always wonder why people ask me that, I would think that they would be like o you buy domains from godaddy huh? But surprisingly a lot of people don't know where to buy domains. I think it was the book outliers that said if you have spent over 10,000 hours on something then most likely that thing is what will make you successful. I have spent way over 10,000 hours just literally searching for domains that are attractive since I am a branding addict and love to play with words and find names that could potentially be the next big brand name. That being said I really think I could market my own domain registration site very well and I own a few domains I am considering to name the official domain registration portal. Below are a list of the names I own and am considering. I would love all of your honest opinions, your advice here on BHW is always greatly appreciated. I truly look forward to hearing all of your responses guys, thank you!!!

    Names for consideration (some are straight to the point, some are more brandable)

    NetSpyder.com
    LiquidGalaxy.com
    BuyAmazingDomains.com
    NextLevelDomain.com
    QuickDomainFinder.com
    ZenRok.com
    Projektive.com
    LiquidNebula.com

    Not really sure on the names, kinda like NetSyder, but that might be harder to brand since people might look it up with the i.

    A little off topic, but if you need a client area / shopping cart for this site, check out: http://www.whmcs.com/

    They are built for domain and hosting resellers. I believe they even had a domain search feature you can include for clients.

    Good luck in the new business. :)

    I like netspyder, liquidgalaxy, and zenrok the best... The others with domain in it sound kinda spammy (from a buyer standpoint)... I think branding would be better/ more rewarding.

    I really like liquidgalaxy... But i dont know if i personally would use it for domain/hosting... Netspyder sounds more like a search engine... So that leaves zenrok as my pick. Lol but liquidgalaxy comes in real close.

    Thank you very much for your response. I too agree that the y and the i might be tricky for users unless of course I can get the domain with the i too for cheap from whoever owns it.. hmm.

    Thank you! I really like zenrok.com its really easy to type out but also might have the issue that ppl wont type it in correctly through word of mouth... And zenrock.com is taken so thats an issue too.. I like the name zenrok though, its definitely brandable. LiquidGalaxy.com is so catchy too, I feel like its such a cool word combo and can really capture peoples attention and have a really cool galactic theme or logo to it as well... I have to pick one soon. NetSpyder.com definitely sounds like a search engine or SEO services website. I really appreciate your opinion as well thank you!

    It seems like the 2 most popular names are NetSpyder.com and LiquidGalaxy.com... I need to decide on one lol. Which one sounds more reliable and trustworthy/professional ?
