As someone who is out in the business world with my own business, I know the importance of having a great name that people can remember. When I shop at businesses, especially small businesses, the more memorable the name, the more likely they are to be top of mind to me.

Join the Not-Com Movement with Name.KitchenWHAT IS NAME.KITCHEN?

Name.Kitchen is an online hub that celebrates the art and science of naming. With Name.Kitchen, there is an amazing new world of choice in naming on the Internet. With hundreds of new “not-com” choices available today – everything from .COFFEE to .PIZZA to .LIFE, you can create a memorable and meaningful domain name. In late 2013,  hundreds of new domain endings — words to the right of that second dot — became available for use when crafting the URL for your website. How amazing is that?

When it comes to domain availability, many of us have been increasingly frustrated by the lack of names available or having to add all sorts of hyphens, other characters or create a really long name. I know that when I began the process of searching for a name for my business, I couldn't find one available online. Even though I spent weeks and weeks looking for just the right name for which a domain was also available, I just couldn't find exactly what I wanted. This was such a frustrating experience. That doesn’t have to happen anymore.

These Donuts’ “not-com” names choices are new and that means that the very best names are still available to be registered. Of course, the better names are more memorable names, right? So you need to choose a great name for your business or project and this is where Name.Kitchen comes in. Name.Kitchen can help you out with tips, advice and inspiration to help you jump-start the name brainstorm. Discover these tools, tips and more at

Lori and Scott Harlig of Amici Catering out of Phoenix, Arizona. They are poised for their third business expansion since founding the Phoenix-based catering company in 2007. This year they catered a VIP Super Bowl party and switched to a ‘dot-catering’ (.catering) domain because, as Lori Harlig explains, “it’s more personalized” and “describes our business.” Read more about why the Harligs chose their name and why a not-com domain here.

    Ahhh, I love it. That is definitely a name I would remember. How smart of them.

  2. The name of a business is probably the most important thing for a business to do. If people can’t remember the business, no matter how good, they won’t come again for the main reason that they can’t remember it.

    What a clever idea. I wonder what not-com name I’d come up with. Maybe .CREATIVE

  4. That extra level of site customization is awesome. I’d love to see more not com links out there.

    The name of a website is very important. It must reflect very well its content. However, with so many websites today, it is difficult to find a domain that has not yet been taken. So this is truly a good idea for everyone.

    This sounds great. I will have to check it out soon. Thank you.

  7. That is a very smart idea! I wonder if I could come up with a clever enough not com name!

  8. Having a great name is very important. I trusted my husband to pick one for my business.

  9. What a clever idea. I would like to come up wit a not-com name.

  11. Very clever idea. That is certainly very easdy to remember.

  13. I really like the idea of further customizing your site name. I never thought about an other name beside .ca or .com.

  14. My name was available no problem… but I understand how important a business name is and then for it to be gone! Ugh.

  15. What a great idea! I wonder what not-com name I could get! Love it!

  16. This would be great for my husband’s online baking business. Thanks for the information!

  17. Awesome idea. I would have to think long and hard about mine. lol I have too many favorites. 😛

  18. A dot blog would be cool or a .shop for my sneaker business. I could think of several that I would love.

    Omg now this is just super cleaver!!!! I’m loving this whole not-com thing!

    This is a great idea to go a little beyond the standard customization of your web pages online presence. I think your name would have to be very representative of what your business is about. I think mine would be . family.

  21. This sounds so awesome! I started my blog about 3 years ago and at that time as far as I knew there were just the basic boring endings for a domain. I’ve been stuck on ever since, but it’s great to know of all the new options!

  22. This is the first time I have heard of such service. Dotcom’s can get really boring after a while. I would probably get a .fromhome name for myself! 🙂
