We are in the business of buying domain names for our clients.  We search for options that best fit their business name, their product or sometimes even their mission. There are millions of combinations, but the inventory of the short, clever and usable domains is getting shorter each day.

From .com to .org, .net and all the new hip and rarely used .guru, .horse, .xyz, .club.  The number of available extensions is getting close to 1,000.  This highly expands the amount of short domains you can purchase, but none of them are as powerful as the original .com.  It may be another decade or two before we all consider .christmas a standard domain extension.
