What’s in a Name? – Get Your Conference or Event The Perfect Handle

Sometimes we are blessed with the opportunity to start over in the event business. Sometimes it is a new event or the re-launch of something that has been done before. If this is where you are at, here is a little time-saver because you will need to get a new domain.

I know that it is never any fun to scour every last inch of the internet looking to see if that wonder URL, handle or name has been taken as a .com, .org, or .net (the only domains you should consider). Beyond that, you must also check to see if it is available on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Foursquare and every other social network where you will be working to attract attendees.

Because it is no fun, someone invented an easier way (thanks internet genie)…


NameChecklist Meeting Event Planning Time Saver

An Amazing Simple Tool

Cruise on over to their website and enter the dream name of your conference or event and the little internet gremlins will scour the World Wide Web and come back with an answer. First it checks the URL, if that is available, the little gremlins take off and scour all of the social media sites to make sure that no one has gobbled those up.

To use NameChecklist, simply visit their website, enter the domain you are thinking of without any spaces or capitals and hit the enter button.

As a bonus, NameChecklist will also tell you what Google thinks the name will rank… pretty cool for a free tool.
