Register.com, Inc., a leading provider of global domain name
registration and web site services, announced a free advanced search
tool that helps consumers and small businesses compete online when
domain name registrations are at an all-time high-by suggesting highly
relevant domain name choices, especially when their first-choice has
already been taken.
The advanced search tool asks targeted questions around categories such
as product, place and intention, and then turns these keywords into
available domain name suggestions with clever combinations, synonyms,
hyphens, etc. What's more, the recommendations are designed to remain
highly meaningful in search engines like Google and Yahoo!
"Before you can get found in the search engines, you need a domain
name," said Monica Hodges, Register.com's General Manager of Retail.
"Register.com understands how challenging it is to find the right
domain name and has assisted countless customers through the
registration process only to discover that someone else has taken their
first-choice. We launched our free advanced search tool to recommend
compelling, memorable and keyword-rich domain names that are directly
aligned with the customer's web site strategy."
After the customer has made their selection, Register.com helps put
those names to good use. Backed by an award-winning customer service
organization, the customer is then presented with the option of a
do-it-yourself or a professionally designed web site solution.
Register.com provides the customer with guidance on how to assemble the
parts in order to create an affordable and effective web site solution.
To further promote the customer's web site, Register.com compliments
these services with a variety of marketing communication tools such as
branded email, search engine submission and other options for driving
"Major search engines consider keywords in domain names as one of the
important factors in determining web site relevance and rankings," said
Anton Konikoff, a well-known search marketing expert and CEO of New
York-based search marketing firm Acronym Media. "We often recommend
that our clients use keyword-rich domain names and smart multi-domain
strategies as part of their search engine optimization (SEO) efforts.
With this new advanced search tool, Register.com has given their
customers a powerful vehicle to find perfect search-friendly domain
names and outsmart the competition."
