    An easy way to check domain avaibility is to use http://knowem.com. It searches over 150 common domains for your name or brand. It also checks social media sites such as twitter, flickr, facebook, etc. It’s a good idea when creating a website to make sure you have a consistent brand across all channels before committing to a URL.
