  • Whether you are a burgeoning social media star, a marketer or just a lover of everything social, you probably want to use the name username on all the major social media sites. Using the same name makes it easy for your adoring fans to find you. 

This is when an online service called NameCheckr comes into play. You enter the desired username and it check the sites for availability. The sites included in its search (as I write this are):

  • Domain (.com)
  • Domain (.net)
  • Domain (.org)
  • Domain (.io)
  • Facebook
  • MySpace
  • GitHub
  • About.Me
  • Twitter
  • Instagram
  • Vimeo
  • Papaly
  • Google+
  • Youtube
  • GetSatisfaction
  • StumbleUpon
  • Tumblr
  • Meetup
  • FeedBurner
  • Blogger
  • Reddit
  • Pinterest
  • FourSquare
  • Pinterest
  • Flickr
  • Ello
  • Dribble
  • Last.FM
  • IFTTT

Click on the load more option and you also get

  • Vine
  • DeviantArt
  • Kinja
  • Spotify
  • ETSY
  • LiveJournal
  • Badoo
  • Disqus
  • eBay
  • Technorati
  • Wordpress
  • Behave
  • Domain (.co)
  • Domain (.us)
  • Domain (.cc)
  • Domain (.me)
  • Domain (.biz)
  • Domain (.info)
  • Domain (.de)
  • Domain (.at)
  • Domain (.eu)
  • Domain (.ru)
  • Domain (.jp)
  • Domain (.mobi)
  • Domain (.in)

Click on any of the services showing the name is available and it will take you to the page where you can register it on that service.

Testing the service

As a test, I ran ekiledjian through the service and after a couple of minutes of processing, it showed me which services had it avaialble or not.
