When most people search for a domain name for their site, their fist thought is I need a catchy name, something everyone remembers. Sorry to ruin this thoughts. Casino.com and Slots.com are already taken.

Selecting your domain name will have to be based on one simple one fact, google definitely boosts ranking of sites where the search term is included in the domain. So if you are building a video poker site you should include the "videopoker" in the domain name or other related terms.

An other question that no one really knows the answer is ".com", ".net" or any other dot. Well, there are successful sites that are not a dotcom site but the word is that dotcom is the best , heck it's even cheaper than most others.

Anecdote
My friend Ellen owns several sites in different gambling niche. One of her best site is: pokerpokerandmorepoker.com. Very exhausting? Well, think about it. It is a poker related site. Having a domain name with the related term "poker" in the domain is great. You check her ranking, it is a top ranked site!

Warning
"High Profile Internet domain names" is how domain sale sites describe their fantastic selection of domains, I don't. Most sites offer a fresh domain site they registered (or someone else registered and put for sale) and their prices are very high. No one invested any time to "Brand" the domain so the usually have no ranking. No ranking means you will have to do it from scratch by yourself. So if you are going to do it by yourself, why not buy a domain for less then ten dollars!

Abandoned domain
An abandoned domain is a domain that used to be a website where the owner did not renew the domain name. For some reason, possibly not enough time to keep the website current or too many websites to keep up with, the owner allowed their domain name to expire. Each week thousands of domain names are not renewed leaving them open for anyone to register. Many of these domains still have traffic going to them, some with large amounts due to active links throughout the Internet and being in Yahoo listings before it became a pay to list site. From my experience it is very difficult to find a gambling related abandoned domain but I think it worth tracking. Think about it, buying a domain that has couple of hundreds gambling visitors a month for less then $10 a year (domain name registration) is something every gambling guide webmaster wishes for.
