A popular way to save on airfare is to book a flight with a lowcost carrier. If you’re unsure which ones have the cheapest tickets, you can head on to sites like Expedia, Orbitz and CheapFlights and you just might find what you’re looking for. Problem is, these sites don’t have everything. Individual airline carriers nowadays don’t always advertise their deals with cost comparison websites. For these companies – and understandably so – the idea of losing sales to competitors is not particularly savory.

2. PickyDomains.com

And if you’re banking on uniqueness to differentiate your brand, mechanical domain/name generators may just be too mechanical to be unique. Branding agencies, on the other hand, may cost you an arm and a leg.
