How to find a good domain name

Finding a good domain name is hard. If you're like me, you've spent absurd amounts of time on this task. Including time which would be much better spent building your product/website/company. 

Here are a list of tools I use which have significantly reduced the time I spend looking for a good domain, and have also significanly improved the quality of the domain names I end up with.

  1. Domain Hole - use Beta code "TWITTER" to get in (as of this writing).
  2. Panabee 
  3. Name Station
  4. Bust a Name - takes a little getting used to, and is a bit painful to use, but can be valuable at getting you to think about connected ideas
  5. Value Drops, these guys update every day with quality domain names recently expired.
  6. Domai.nr helps you find creative url structures for that name you really, really want to use.
  7. Wordoid helps you make up names.

And finally here's an even more comprehensive list of tools – dozens deep.
