What do you think about registering xipne.com as your next domain name?
Let me predict...hmm...you thought it was awful, right? I can hear you saying to yourself: "No one would use it, no one would remember it". Well, perhaps you are right. At least, right at this epoch (around 2013).
Yesterday I released suggestmydomain.com that does such stupid thing; suggests an available domain name randomly. This post is about why I did it.
It's not from another world
I didn't do it alone. My young brother was 80% of the time at my side. I did it to show him very deeply that what he sees around the Internet didn't come from another world; that google.com is not really a magical thing: it's made by people, for people and machines are just tools. Furthermore, he saw that in order to accomplish a goal, obstacles appear and you must face them to succeed.
It had a purpose
Its purpose is clear. When you have a clear purpose and you see its value, it makes a huge difference. You don't waste time in code styling, you deliver what must be delivered. Using suggestmydomain.com is straightforward, you don't need to type anything, just access.
Not much to comment about this.
What's the meaning of XKCD? As far as I know, none. Answer me, sincerely, do you really think xkcd.com is a good name? The point is content matters, not names. If you have a good content, don't be fooled by what people say about "best practices" for domain names; people will be forced to remember your name.
Look at the mirror
Writing this post made me think...why didn't I choose a random name for suggestmydomain.com too? Hmm...I will, soon, ;)
Special thanks to my love Juliana, helping me in so many ways I couldn't imagine. Many thanks for your help! You know you are part of it too. I love you!!!
That's all for now, folks
Till the next post!
