It is advisable that you have complete control over your domain name.  Your domain name is the URL and the address people type in their browsers to reach your website. Set up an account with a Domain Registrar. Then check if your desired name is available.

Having registered your desired name the domain name you're now the new kid on the block! Your desired/preferred .com name costs no more  than any of the more popular names e.g. microsoft.com, hotmail.com or even dell.com The approximate cost of registration is under €10.00 per year. However .ie may be somewhat more expensive.
