    I'm looking to start a website and thought of a name I would really like to use. I entered it to see if anyone else had it. I typed "www.nameiwanted.com" and the URL changed to "www.nameiwanted.co.uk"

    Does this mean I can't use "www.nameiwanted.com"? What's the surefire way of seeing if a domain name is available?

    domain name

    your domain have been acquired by a compagny who redirect it to his main website. That mean that this domain name is not available.

    To know for sure who own a domain name visit http://www.whois.net/

    God luck :)
