This one is tough. Back in the mid 90’s this was quite easy to do. Nowadays, the good ones are taken! Not really. A lot of the names are available now. Those who purchased them, have let them expire. You will need some patience and a few hours of time. Our suggestion is go to http://www.netsol.com/en_US/name-it/multiple.jhtml and search for multiple domain names at one time. By no means do we suggest that you purchase your name there. Simply look and search. You are better off purchasing a domain name with the web hosting company you have chosen.
Some thoughts on purchasing a domain name.
1. Make sure it is a name that interacts with what your site is about.
2. Try your best to get a short name. Remember, your domain name is part of your email address. Your visitors/customers will like it better by typing in a shorter email address.
3. Manage it. Don’t let it expire by accident. You would be surprised at how many people let this happen and lose a name that too a long time to acquire.
Good luck with the hunt!
