I'm thrilled to announce that Lean Domain Search now has a domain name generator specifically geared towards professional businesses. This is premium (paid) product and it's not for everyone so its important to understand what it is and whether or not it's something you can benefit from.
Business names vs websites names
Let's pretend for a moment that you're interested in starting your own construction company.
If you use the normal Lean Domain Search domain name generator, the results would include
Construction Bit, and
Construction Jet. Would you name your construction company any of these names? Probably not, and it's not just a matter of needing more results. These are fundamentally not the right structure for naming something like a construction company. If you wanted to create a website about construction, then maybe something like
Constructionly would work, but it's not something you'd want to throw on the side of your office building or business cards if you were running an actual construction company.
If you look at how actual construction companies name themselves the names look more like
Walsh Construction, and
Like the majority of other offline businesses, these domain names follow a common format: <word or phrase> <industry>.
The new business name generator creates business names in just this format. If you search construction it would return names like
Blue Earth Construction, and
Brightstone Construction (all results have available exact match .coms so you don't have to pay thousands procuring it).
What other industries could use this? Design, engineering, photography, medical, security, venture capital, gardening, cycling, and virtually any other business that primarily operates in the real world instead of online (for a long list of example industries, check out the Business Name Generator homepage and scroll three quarters of the way down the page).
If you're building a web-based product (like most tech startups), a blog, a forum, or an informational site, this new business name generator is probably not for you. However if you're looking for a name for the software company behind your web-based products, you could definitely use this tool to find available software company names (that's how I came up with Lightstone Software for my company).
If you'd like to read more, please check out the Business Name Generator homepage — we offer a 100% money back guarantee so there's no risk to you. If you find a business name you like, great, and if not, we'll send you your money back.
If you don't need to name an offline business, you might like our website name generator which is great for naming startups.
