FAQ Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I buy a word?

    You can search for a word or browse words A-Z using the top navigation. If the word is inactive (i.e., available), click it and you'll be brought to the checkout.

    Inactive words look like this and active words look like Active Link.

  • What if the word I want is taken?

    Don't worry, there are many variations of each word, including plurals and 'ings' and stuff. Or why not try a completely unrelated word to define your site? It might give you a totally different view of it.

  • Can I suggest a word?

    We are trying to keep the list of words as close as possible to the words in the English dictionary. If the word you want is not listed but is in the dictionary then yes, you can suggest a word to use.

  • What if I don't have a website?

    Why not link the word to your Bebo, Myspace, Facebook or Flickr account? Or even buy a word for a friend's site?

  • How can I Pay?

    At the minute we only accept payment through paypal. It's the safest way. If you don't have a Paypal account, they also accept credit/debit cards.

  • Can I change the website my word links to?

    Sorry, once you choose your website that's it.

  • How can I include a word in my website or blog?

    You can use the following Javascript code to include your word in your website or blog. Just replace MY_WORD with your word.
