A key part of a creative project is its name. An essential part of that name is that it can be used.
Brands are one thing. Domain names (presence on the internet) are something else. Not very different; But another thing.
But its use is not limited to a single country. Good. If we consider that Internet It is not a country.
It is important to check the availability of the name with which the project is being baptized, to ensure that its presence on the internet is quiet and not to be surprises. The more homogeneous the better.
A great tool for reviewing the availability of domain names and social networking users is Namechk.
Over a name we end up overturning a lot of emotional ties; It is preferable to save the penalties, invest a little time in reviewing the availability and then opt for the name.
Having a domain name does not guarantee that we have a brand. That depends on the registration in each territory. One thing no Leads to the other.
And that we have a brand does not necessarily grant rights on the accounts of users in social networks. That depends on each social network, but they almost always go with the rule of "Step first, step hard".
The first choice of name is not always the strongest, and surely someone else has already thought about it and uses it. Do not be discouraged. Check it out.
