    You may wish to consider the following tips:

    [SIZE=2]Technical Constraints:[/SIZE]
    Do not use an ampersand '&'. Technically, it is illegal, so you should also avoid 'and'.
    Do not use apostrophes. Technically, it is illegal and therefore the use of an apostrophe is not permitted.
    Do not start or end with a hyphen (-).
    The permitted characters are: abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz 0123456789-
    All characters are lower case.

    Domain Name Tips for choosing a Good Domain name..
    1) Make it a dot-com
    2) Short and easy to spell
    3) Be defensive with misspellings
    4) Protect your brand with other extensions — While the “.com” extension is the most popular, as a defensive measure consider also snapping up other extensions of your domain name.
    5) Avoid long hyphenated URLs
    6) Register domains for as long as possible — A final word of advice: secure your main domain names for a minimum of several years so they don’t expire out from under you.
    You can register domain names for very low cost from www.WhoisXY.com with 24/7 customer support.

    take a word or words you plan to create for your product, and run them through thesarus to get similar words. Combine the many options such as "strong" "reliable" etc with the other word, and see what is available on a bulk domain checker.

    my advice is pick any short and easily memorable name in .com extension if you want to create any brand, or choose any long tail keyword in domain name, if your site is based on single niche content.

    Just think of something easy to remember, catchy, with not so many numbers, and possibly .com or .net (regular people don't really like other domains). No hyphens either!

    In order to have a good domain name, it must be related to the site, that you create. It also should be short and expressive for the domain, so that the user understand easily what is about

    Some of these rules are more important than others and a lot will depend on whether your domain name is being purchased for business use or personal use but generally speaking these are domain buying rules to follow in almost every scenario.

    1. Stick with “.com” – The .com TLD (top-level domain) is by far the most widely accepted extension for a domain name. If you are looking for a domain name for a business then it is even more important to choose a .com for your domain name because of the credibility boost that a .com domain name brings. Yes, there are still some very successful businesses that have domain names ending in .net or .org but just think, as a new business do you really want to chance having a lot of your customers forget that your domain name ends in .net and instead type in your domain name + .com when they go to find your website? There are some exceptions to this rule of course. If you run a business that is based in a country outside of the United States then it can be smart to use a local TLD (.uk for the United Kingdom, .au for Australia, .ca for Canada, .de for Germany, .cn for China, etc.).
