What can you use the app for?

NameChk ican be used to search for the availability of usernames on 106 sites at one time. This is a wonderful idea because searching and finding usernames that aren’t taken is getting extremely difficult. NameChk allows you to check 106 sites all at the same time which will help you to choose a good username which you can use on all of the sites. NameChk can be useful to promote your brand by registering the same name on every single site, or to help you find usernames which are still available on most of the sites. It’s an extremely quick service and it only takes around 8 seconds to return the result. If you did all of this manually then it would take you hours!

What is the history and popularity of the app?

The application was founded in April 2009 and although still very new is becoming increasingly popular. The site has very few competitors as Username Check closed down some time ago. Namechk is a useful and very quick solution to find usernames which are available.

What are the differences to other apps?

Unlike other applications namechk scans for available usernames on 106 different platforms. This means that you can easily find usernames which aren’t taken on all of the popular social networking sites.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Namechk has a very simple design; there is a search box at the top and results down the bottom. You simply put the username that you are interested in having in the search box and then click the button. It will then run a very quick search and return with the results. Then registering accounts at any one of the social networking sites is just a matter of clicking the name and filling out the registration form safe in the knowledge that your chosen username is already available.

How does the registration process work?

It’s not possible to register for an account as it works just like a search engine. There are no accounts available on the site.

What does it cost to use the application?

NameChk is completely free to use, it seems to be supported by Google Adsense adverts, but these are small and don’t get in the way. It’s a very useful website and a real joy to use!

Who would you recommend the application to?

NameChk is perfect for anyone that struggles to find good usernames on a number of the social networking sites. It is becoming more difficult so this is a great idea. It is also good for companies who are trying to build their brand image; they can use this tool to find a name which is available on most of the platforms and then register it to promote their products.

  • Check usernames on 106 different social networking sites
  • Register by clicking on the buttons
  • Find usernames which are available on all platforms
  • Build your brand image
