Picky domains is an innovative and kind of unique service for finding an original domain name. Differently from other services like nameboy or Domainsbot which suggest a number of domain names given a list of keywords, PickyDomains works very differently. It uses real people, expert at domain choosing, to come up with memorable and easy to pronounce domain names according to your indications. The service costs 50$ and they offer a money back guarantee. As your domain will be with your company for all its life, it’s very worthwhile spending some time and money getting the right one.

You can upload the file to the site or alternatively, send it via email. The service is free.

If you have an e-commerce site, it’s paramount to know if it goes down to take the proper countermeasures. Having an application running on your machine that pings the website is impractical and doesn’t work if you pc is turned off.
Much more reliable is a web monitoring service like Montastic, that pings your sites every ten minutes from two different locations and notifies you if something is wrong.
Montastic allows you to monitor up to 100 websites for free. If your server goes down it’ll send you an email. Another email is sent when the site is back up.
You can also see your sites status via RSS or using a Yahoo Widget (you can download the Yahoo Widget Engine here for free) so that you can always keep an eye on your sites.
I added three sites: my main website, my blog (which is hosted by another ISP) and my Plimus order page. I can sleep better now.
