- Wait for the renewal period
You can wait for the renewal period of the domain. It may so happen that the registered owner of the domain forgets to renew or he just lets it lapse because he no longer wants to pay for the domain anymore. In such a case, you get an opportunity to purchase the domain name. After you get your domain name, you should ensure that the extension you choose supports the kind of activity that you intend to carry out online.
As we have seen, the fact that your intended domain name is taken does not necessarily mean that you can’t proceed with your plans to launch your e-commerce platform. There are alternatives available at your disposal. However, you have to ensure that no matter the situation, in the end, you should have a domain name that easy to type, is simple, and memorable. It should also be useful for SEO purposes.
