The resources of e-BC and Small Business BC are probably the most valuable resources you will discover. I have used them for over 6 years and have great results with their courses and their free 1 on 1 consultation. I would credit them with my entire online business learning and development experience.  I have had great success ranking page 1, position 1,2 and 3 with Google, Yahoo and MSN with the information and systems I learned here.

Say your prospective domain name out loud to listen to its sounds. See if your

tongue gets twisted around any syllables.

a domain name -- most of them owned by domain registrars to attract business.

random names and can combine up to 5 keywords and check availability of each

resulting domain.

then adds up to 1,000 popular prefixes or suffixes to that word. For each

combination you can see which domains are available and which have been


NameBoy www.nameboy.com

primary and a secondary word to work with, select the type of site you have, and

whether or not you want to turn on the hyphenation and rhyming features.

Random Word Generator



 Generates a random word with parameters supplied by the user. Good for

empty vessel naming.

Searching availability

Only when you have developed a number of possible company (or product)

names, should you begin the domain name search. The reason is that so many

good domain names are already taken, and you may be influenced to only use

what is left over.

Domain Name Registrar

An organization or company authorized by its respective government or by

ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to provide

domain name registration services. www.icann.org

.ca domains are regulated by the Canadian Internet Registration Authority

Prices & Competition

The cost to register a domain name depends on which company you decided to

go with, on average it will cost about $10 - $30 for a one year subscription.

Competition between registrars is strong and as such prices and services vary


Registering: What to know

Registering your domain name is simple and easy. You can do it online or by phone.

Length of term

It is suggested that you register your domain name for 3-5 years to ensure you

maintain the name and the registration cost is less expensive over a longer

period of time.


Time and time again companies forget to renew their domain names and are left

with non working Web sites and email systems. Do not let this happen. Renewal

is simple. You can call your registrar or log on to their website to re-register and


Put it in your name

If you instruct an individual or company to register your domain name on your

behalf ensure that it is registered to you. If it is not registered in your name then

you will not be able to make changes to it.


You may switch your domain name registrar at any time and the registration

period for the domain name registration will not be changed or lost. The old

registrar is permitted to charge you an administrative fee, which cannot exceed

$20.00 irrespective of the number of registrations you may have.

Protect your identity

Every time you register a domain name, your personal contact information is

available on the Internet for anyone to see, including spammers, identity thieves,

or telemarketers. Always use a WhoisProtector when registering a domain


Your email address

All domain names come with an email address

A common mistake is to register a domain but use a personal email address.
