I need help. I'm trying to get a domain for my skinned google homepage (among other stuff), but everything I want is taken!

gskin.com is already registered (and it sounds like a site about g-strings)

googlerevamped.com uses "Google" in its name, and it takes too long to type

gtheme.com is taken

elgoog.com is already owned by Google

goog.com is taken as well

Any suggestions?

EDIT: "g-theme.com" is available, though I'd like to search a little more.

Google2point0, and thelatestgoogle is availble. also, those domains without the "e" at the end are availble

edit: googlv2 is open (the v stands for version)

edit edit: googlsearch2 is open

edit edit edit: searchgoogl is availble!

I had actually looked up "gv2.com" and "g2.com" yesterday, but those are taken as well. I also feel that "googl" is too close for comfort with Google.

@MBL: goggle.com is taken, too :(

Does it have to have its own domain? Why not just host it on your 110MB account, and post it on dA, etc. It would still be very popular!

v An excellent open–source strategy game—highly recommended.

Yeah, true, but it wouldn't get as much credit. It would be like youtube's website was "youtube.anglefire.com". Bleh.

BTW, I'll probably register g-theme.com sometime tonight unless something really good is available.

Don't even think about an unregistered domain with 2 or 3 letters.

Did you looked at the less-used extensions like .us, .biz, .info and stuff?

Though, g-theme.com is pretty cool, well there's a dash but otherwise I like it.

What whois tool do you use? I'm pretty fond of http://www.ajaxwhois.com myself.

BTW, as you mimic Google, if they want to sue you, they'll do so, whatever would be the domain.

I don't use any specific whois tool. There's GoDaddy's whois, Host Monster's whois, and Whois.net

And I read the Google tos and pp. As long as I don't use their images (like the Google logo) without permission and state that I am not affiliated with Google somewhere, the site is legal. Though I feel like emailing them about it just in case.

usedgoogle.com?

uhgoogle.com?

uhoogle.com?*

uhg.com?

usedhondasgoogle.com?

*personally favoured choice, so much so it's boldfaced, colour emphasised and coupled by an underline for good measure.

EDIT: slogan for uhoogle.com: 'I don't know that, have [yo]uhoogle-d it?". uhoogle = you hoogle = 'I don't know that, have you hoogle-d it?

Made me chuckle.

uhoogle.com?*

LOVE it! Sounds like "Yoo-hoo (gle)!"

Offtopic (which means ontopic): Has anyone seen the Nextel/Sprint commercial with the construction site that's a symphony of sorts? That's one heck of a catchy song, but I'm weird...I think our local news station has good theme music...

@d.a: lol, I was just about to say how hard it is to interpret the songs in Sprint commercials! Especially the shoe tying one...

Luckily, the answer can be found here:
