How to Find the Perfect Unregistered Domain Name

I stumbled across this brilliant site about a month ago, and have been telling anyone who'll listen how awesome it is.

It's called

It's awesome because for $50 it helps you find an unregistered domain name that fits your criteria. So if you want to find a domain that's max 10 characters long, letters only (no numbers, dashes, or other punctuation), and describes a social network for goldfish, they'll be able to help you. Here's how it works.

1. Create an account, pay $50, and provide description of the domain name you're looking for.

2. This is sent to the PickyDomains contributors.

3. Let the domain names roll in.

4. Pick one.

That's it! When you register one, $25 goes to the domain namer, and $25 goes to Picky Domains.

And the best part--if you don't register one, you get your money back! Freaking risk-free!

I'm taking advantage of their "plug us on your blog, get a free name once" service, but the real reason I'm plugging Picky Domains is because it's a really smart, well-executed, and valuable service. Heartily recommended!
