Domain Check – Which domains for the name are still available?

With the Domain Check tool, all your words and names which you marked as favorite name ideas in My Names are checked regarding the availability of top level domains.

Top level domains for new names

Proper top level domains are extremely important for your business, whether you are an online start-up or a big company which has to perform a name change. So make sure that the most important top level domains for your name are still available when deciding on a new name!

The Domain Check allows you to check the availability of a variety of top level domains with one click, ranging from international domains like .com and .org to country-specific domains like .de and .fr.

If a domain is still available, you can immediately start the registration process. NameRobot leads you to several domain registration services which we can recommend.

Trademark Check

One of the main criteria for the selection of your name: Is your name idea already registered as a trademark by any third parties? The Trademark Check takes care of extensive and complicated research work, nationally and internationally. It allows you to perform a first trademark search quickly and easily by yourself. Simply select the scope and receive a helpful overview.

Trademark Check - Is the name already registered?

With Trademark Check, you can test whether one of your favorite names has already been registered as a trademark by someone else. This step is crucial: you should never settle on a name without having done a trademark check!

Search various trademark databases in one go

If your membership allows you to use the Trademark Check, the cost for this check is already included in your membership. No additional fees!

One click on one of your favorite names is enough to start the Trademark Check. After approximately 30 seconds, you will see the results. What the Trademark Check does is identity research, which means that all identical trademarks are shown if they exist. Moreover, you see where and at what date the trademark was registered. You are also provided with information on the classes of goods and services that the trademark is registered to.

NameRobot checks US, German and Swiss trademark databases as well as trademarks valid across the European Union and international registrations administered by the International Bureau of WIPO.

If you have found a candidate for a name that is good - and has not already been trademarked - you can have it checked thoroughly by your lawyer and then register it as a trademark.

Trademark protection scopes for 7 regions:

You can check the following regions for trademark registrations:

  • International protection scopes
  • EU trademarks
  • European trademarks (non-EU)
  • North America
  • Middle and South America
  • Asia
  • Africa

Social Check

Is your name still available in all relevant social networks? Don't waste time searching through all networks on your own. The Social Check does this chore for you and also gives an overview of what's relevant on the web besides Facebook and Twitter.

Social Check - Is the name still available on social networks?

Check the availability of your name in social networks and other internet portals - with only one click.

Claim your name in social networks

If you want to use social media marketing for your new business or product - and who doesn't, nowadays? - you should make sure that your name idea has not already been claimed by someone else on the most important social media sites.

Remember, you do not necessarily need to set up profiles on each social network. If you are a b2b company, you'll probably be more insterested in the "big ones" like LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook, whereas as a freelance artist, you should also take a look at DeviantArt or Flickr. In any case, consider registering your (company) name on different portals, because if anyone else snags it, you have no control over what happens under your name.

NameRobot checks whether the name is available as username (e.g. Twitter) or as a custom vanity URL, e.g. www.facebook.com/yourname.

Search Engine Check

You want your name to stand out - especially online. If your name idea competes with many other hits on Google & Co., it won't get good search engine rankings. The Search Engine Check lets you quickly see how many results your name idea yields on various search portals.

Search Engine Check - How widespread is the name online?

With the Search Engine Check you can find out how many results your name idea yields on several search engines.

Is your name already widespread?

With search engine results, the rule is: less is more. Because the more often your name is found, the more often it is used by other people. Obviously, you don't want that.

While Google is undoubtedly  the most important search engine, we also included other important portals like Yahoo and Bing, and also some platforms which offer an extensive search function, like Amazon and eBay.

App Check

The App Check tells you the number of results your name idea yields in various app stores. Are there already apps with identical names on iTunes, Google Play & Co.?

App Check - Is the name already used for an app?

With the App Check you can find out how many results your name idea yields in several of the most important app stores.

The rule is: less is more. Because the more often your name is found, the more often it is used by other people. Obviously, this is not desirable.

The App Check searches through Google Play Store, Apple's iTunes store and Windows Phone Store, as well as many more like BlackBerry World or Firefox Addons.
