    I am all set to start a biotechechnology related website

    the website is about the latest news.research and thesis of different universities around the world.
    I am also planning to include all the assays and protocols for different experiments like cloning,genesequencing and etc into the website


    I amlooking for a .com domain, without numbers in it and should have the keyword biotech in it

    thanks in advance for your suggestions:D

    Why don't you try Biotechnology-News.com? At the time of this writing, the domain name is still available. Most domain names on biotechnology are already registered.

    Will you only consider .com domains or will you also consider other TLD's. What about the following which appear to be available.

    biotechblog.biz
    biotechblog.info
    biotechday.net / .org / .biz / .info
    daybiotech.com / .net / .biz / .info
    biotechnologyday.net / .biz / .info / .org
    thebiotechtimes.com / net / .org / .biz / .info
    biotechtimes.net / .org / .biz / .info
    biotechnow.net / .biz / .info
    biotechopinion.com / .net / .org / .biz / .info

    Good luck with it and please let us know what you decide on.

    In my opinion, biotechnology is a stronger keyword than biotech. For people who will be using google or other search engines to look up the word "biotechnology", they would have a lesser chance of seeing your website if your domain name only contains biotech. On the other hand, those who google the word "biotech" would still have a good chance of hitting on a website with a domain name of biotechnology because the word biotech is still inside of it. Anyway, just my 2 cents. It's still up to you to make that decision. :)

    I used the wordtracker and adwords I got the following results

    biotech 336 and using google I got 33,100

    biotechnology 450 and for this I got 40,120

    So Nazreen was right but my biotech mind said otherwise!! Now I am confused what to choose more any way I have found a few names

    thebiotechblogger.com
    probiotechblog.com
    biotechpool.com
    biotechelix.com
    biotechknowhow.com
    biotechstrand.com
    biotechstrain.com

    I like biotechstrain.com and biotechpool.com from your list above.

    Have you considered brandable domains that do not have the word biotech or biotechnology in them?

    You also need to be conscious of the fact that someone else might see the domains you suggest and register them before you do. Hopefully this is unlikely but you never know.

    for the creative there is one more last option always!! So I dont see anyone registering all the domains here even if he does it will be useless without content !!most of the people doing online business are not exactly good at biotech hehe

    Very good point, I've sometimes heard people express the view that they had a super domain and because of that no one could compete with them. Like you say, the truth is that there is always an option.
