If you are having trouble choosing your perfect domain name, IONOS is here to help. There are a multitude of options available to you – and workarounds for any problem all leading you to a fantastic domain name for your site.
The first thing you can do is think about changing the TLD. This is the part of the URL at the end: for example .com, .net, .org. So if your desired domain name was balletshoes.com and you find that this is already taken, you can try balletshoes.org or balletshoes.net. The IONOS domain check will automatically generate your desired domain name with new TLDs if your first choice is already taken.
If these are also not available, or you have your heart set on one particular TLD, then you can think about adapting your original domain name. Having to rethink your domain name shouldn't be seen as a problem and, in fact, it may lead to a spark of inspiration that helps your chosen domain name to really stand out.
