Hi Michael,

 

Thanks for your post!

 

I'm not too sure about this one. I conducted a simple search on Google and found various website for testing domain names - they might be useful for you. Although someone else on the Community with experience in this area might be able to recommend an effective way to test potential domain names...

 

Alternatively, it might be a good idea to post your query over on the Webmaster Tools Help Forum: http://goo.gl/Kj7h4

 

I hope this helps!

Michael,

When you say testing for Validity what are you basing this upon? What criteria?

Is the Url Seo Friendly?
Does the domain have negative history?
is the URL memorable?
Is it available to purchase?
Does it convey a positive message?
Will people know what it means?

If you help us define what you are truly asking we can point you in the right direction.
