    Hi everyone,
    I want to start offering tutoring services, but need help with a catchy name! I’ve been thinking for weeks now, but all the names/domains has been already taken! Any suggestion? Thanks :)

    Hi Abi,

    Welcome!

    We love a good brainstorm around here, but we find that the best way to get people putting their thinking caps on is to give them as much info as you can. For example, what will you be tutoring, and who will you be doing it for?

    Anything else you can tell us about your business plan that might be relevant is worth mentioning too.

    Good luck with it all,
    Jayne

    Hi Abi,

    I have to agree with Jayne here. Can you please provide us further information about your tutoring business? Then we can all easily make some domain name suggestions :)

    Cheers,

    Shaun

    I’m probably with the others in saying some more info would be great. Such as who your target audience is. For tutoring businesses it’s usually not the students but the parents you need to speak to with your website, but you can also narrow it down even further than that to help with your domain search (see below).

    Since a lot of the good domains are taken (it’s a common complaint, trust me), here’s a few things I’d suggest doing that might help narrow your search:

    1. Check for your company name first

    I’m not sure if you’ve picked a name for the company itself or if you’re going to be picking it based on what domains are available, but I’d suggest registering your company name anyway.

    It will help with brand related searches in the future and makes ranking for your own name much easier.

    2. Inject some common industry keywords into your domain if you can

    Generic keyword domains like tutoring.com.au are already taken and the owners of those domains can ask for really exorbitant prices because, well, they’re usually worth it if you have a good business behind it.

    You can however add keywords, like if you company name was just called “Widgetco” you could try something like widgetcotutoring.com.au which will add some relevance for the term “tutoring”.

    If you have a really long business name and want to get some keywords in there you can try abbreviating. Eg. Abi’s Mobile Scholastics could become abstutoring.com.au. Just watch you don’t distort the meaning of any of the words you abbreviate.

    3. Use what you know about your target audience to narrow down your domain search

    As I mentioned at the start, narrowing your target audience can help. An example of how narrowing down your audience can help you find a good domain would be something like the following:

    Do you work with private school students only? In a couple of minutes I found a great one: privateschooltutoring.com.au was still available.

    4. Try using a generation tool

    Sometimes if you’re really stuck you can use a generation tool like one of the following:

    http://domai.nr/ – put in a few keywords and it lets you get creative with country endings

    http://nameboy.com/ – generate hundreds of domains based on a couple of words

    http://www.leandomainsearch.com/ – similar to name boy, just search for a keyword

    There’s heaps of these tools out there…

    5. Buy an expired domain

    Sometimes you can pick up good domain names that others have let expire, try browsing around these sites:

    http://www.expireddomains.net/ or https://www.snapnames.com/

    6. Go country specific

    If you’re an Australian based business dealing with local customers predominantly there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go for the .com.au domain.

    By all means by the .com as well (I did) but the .au instantly gives you credibility with an Australian audience.

    Hope this all helps.. good luck on the search and drop us all a note with what you end up settling on!
