Searching for a Domain Name

Image

1. Click the link above to open the GoDaddy home page.

2. In the middle of the page their is a search box.  Enter the domain name that you wish to check availability for.

Image

3. You may notice that the domain name is not available.  If it is not, there are usually some other options listed on the page. You may also try using a different suffix (i.e. .com, .net, .info, .org). Domain names for organizations can typically use any of these, however, individuals and businesses are better served with .com or .net.

4. Try searching again in the search box.
