This search is done through a domain name registration company, like 123-reg.

If your chosen name is unavailable you can either:
• Register your preferred name using a different domain name extension (‘’)
• Reword your name using a hyphen (‘my-site’)
• Come up with a slight variation on your name (‘MySiteRocks’)
• Or simply think up a new name that’s available with your preferred extension (‘’)
