    I've got a situation where I can't get the exact domain name for a client. It's a very generic term, and it's being used for a personal site and they're not interested in selling. So, it got me thinking about some of the variations or alternatives that might work, something like:

    get<brand>.com
    go<brand>.com
    <brand>hq.com
    team<brand>.com

    I looked around for ideas and came across this article on top suffixes and prefixes that I thought was worth sharing:

    http://www.leandomainsearch.com/top-domain-name-prefixes-and-suffixes

    They've got a list of 5000 taken from the .com zone files.

    Here are the top 10:
    • my
    • online
    • the
    • web
    • media
    • web
    • world
    • net
    • go
    • group
    Of course some of these don't work for each name, but I thought it might come in handy :)

    I like the top three in your list Chris. Have sold many of these - most recent sale was mydoctor.com.au.

    Another good one that I like for travel / tourism is "visit".
