What if I can’t get the domain name of my choice?

Oh dear! Someone beat you to it! How committed are you to that particular name? Is there an alternative?

It is possible to try and buy the domain name from the current owner. You can try contacting them to see if they will consider selling it to you however they’ll most likely want to charge a higher fee than usual.

If you’re just starting out, try the cheaper and easier alternative of obtaining a domain name first and then naming your website or business after the domain that you’ve acquired.
