Find that Site

Q:
Help! I’m looking for a web site for a certain company, but I can’t find it. I’ve put ” www.theirname.com ” into my web browser and came up empty. I also tried variations of their name plus other domain types (.net, .org, .biz, etc) and nothing. I know they have a web site, but I’m starting to get frustrated. Any ideas?

A:
Wow, looks like you’ve done almost everything – almost.

Trying different variations of a company’s name is a good start, but sometimes their domain name might be that of a parent company or even something that describes their product. For example, a company selling blue widgets may have used “bluewidgets.com” as a domain instead of the company name.

Anyway, when you can’t find a company or organization by using their name, try a search engine. Just head to your favorite (I like google ) and search for their name or product(s). Nine times out of ten, you’ll find them.

You know, it’s one of those “can’t see the forest through the trees” things.
