People ask us all of the time where and how to secure profile names that match the website address. It is important to secure these as early as possible when reserving your domain name.
There is a great site available called: Knowem at http://knowem.com which allows you to search for a specific user name (ex: abccomm) to see what sites may have it available. It is a great tool where you can streamline a single user name through “all” of the different social media platforms and reserve that name moving forward. The key to this is build your branding and your company branding effectively by presenting the same URL user name throughout all platforms and mediums.
We have used this tool in the past and it is very helpful.
