Then there's still a chance that the domain name is available.
GoDaddy will tell you if the domain is currently registered to someone else, or if it's available to be registered by you.
Try entering your domain name (including the top-level domain such as ".com") in the search bar at GoDaddy.com and you'll see either a good message like this saying that your domain name is available:
Or an unfortunate message saying that the domain name you entered is unavailable, but they might be able to help you get it.
Then it's up to you - is it worth the money to pay a few thousand dollars or more for the ideal domain name for your business?
Maybe before hiring broker to help you try to purchase an already-registered domain name, you can try searching to see what else is available.
We like to use Instant Domain Search to search for domain names. Here, you'll see a massive list of domains with different domain name extensions. This site might be more ideal for thinking up a domain name for a new business or existing business with a new website, but it's a great resource nonetheless.
Once you've identified an available domain name, purchase or "register" it on your site of choice!
