To register a domain name, you might want to use a special name-find tool at http://BuyDomains.com -- it allows you to search for domain names containing your specific key words. Excellent time saving device!
When choosing your domain name keep this in mind:
-> Select a name that is not only easy to pronounce and easy to spell -- make sure that it spells same way as it sounds.
-> Avoid hyphens, numbers and abbreviations to prevent future confusion -- unless registering both versions -- for example, I registered both domain names: EMailMarketingTips.com and E-MailMarketingTips.com
-> Chances are that name you really want is not available as dot-com anymore. If so, select another, less perfect name, but try to get dot-com before you opt for .net or .org -- or any other extensions. -> Make it is as short as possible. Yes, virtually all one word domain names with dot-com extension are taken, but don't give up too easily on two-word names. There are still many great ones available.
-> Three, or even four-word domain names can be good too if they are not too long. Make sure you count syllables as well. If it is easy to pronounce and under six syllables, most likely it is fine (my InternetSuccessCoach.com has 3 words and 6 syllables for example)
Using your own domain name is not only cost-free branding tool. In addition this type of email address adds instant credibility to your correspondence and - even more important - your e-mail address will stay same even when you change your ISP (and most likely you will, trust me!).
