If you read my blog post about Tips on naming your blog or business and choosing a unique domain, then you know there is a world of domain options out there for you to choose from, so that you can stand out and set your business up for success. 

After 30 years, the internet has finally come up with a new way to name your business on the web. Back in 2013, hundreds of new domain endings — words to the right of that second dot — were made available for use when brainstorming a URL for a new business idea on the web.
And, while new not-com options are available for use, choosing a name for your new "business" baby is not easy. Name.Kitchenpowered by Donuts, provides resourceful tools that aid in the naming process like; naming tools and inspirational videos, all that help support your brainstorming process.

What's more frustrating then dreaming up a wonderful name for your business? Then, go to purchase the domain and it's not available "Ugh!!!", back to the drawing board. Considering a not-com instead of a traditional domain, helps in terms of availability, the daunting task of choosing a domain for your business idea is made easier with memorable choices like- .style, .coffee, .bike, .photagraphy, .business and .company. These “not-com” options have great benefits like, memorability, uniqueness, stress reducing (you know what I mean), and with a wide range of options (you don't have to limit yourself when choosing). 

I wanted to stand out a little with A Chicago Mom so I decided to purchase a new domain to customized my web space more. You can now also reach me at / A Chicago Mom lifestyle blog. Check out how other small businesses chose the not-com life!

Small business and the not-com

This Little /

Mitucha Ford left behind a career in film production and advertising to launch an eco-friendly baby clothing line inspired by her love of crocheting baby booties.

Mitucha specializes in customized one-of-a-kind designs made from organic cotton and eco-friendly wool.

London, United Kingdom

Mitucha says, “Originally, I was just going to go with ‘dot-london’ (.london) because I wanted to promote the fact that I was a little London company. But I was also hoping to stumble across something that suggested boutique, something small, everything done under one roof.”
