Do you have or know of fun domain names? Do you think it's worth having them?

I'm interested in domain names that are remarkable in the sense that they are short or easy-to-remember.

This idea for a topic started because I find myself window shopping for domain names. Thing is, the only use I have for a domain is for my personal website. That's why I hesitate picking up these fun quirky domains.

What are some interesting domain names you've encountered?

Do you think it's worth it (in terms of utility and/or entertainment value) to have a more remarkable domain name for a personal website?

    I spent quite a bit of money (given I'm an individual person) on https://river.me for my personal website. I would 100% do it again, there's no question about spelling, and even if it's not .com, .me is still pretty common for personal websites. I could've done river.dev without any upfront cost, just yearly registration, but that TLD isn't common enough imo.

    If you can do a very short & easy-to-remember .me domain vs a much longer .com one, go for the .me. You want something that you can just tell someone verbally, without spelling it, and they know where to go.

        A lot of people just can’t wrap their head around the fact that websites don’t have to end in “.com”. Those people also tend to struggle with domains that have hyphens in them.

        I think that might matter based on location. Like I would prefer to go to a .ca than a .com, because then there's a higher chance it's a Canadian company.

        You can alias several domains to the same same site or email server tonget the best of both worlds. At my last startup gig, we had long-company-name.com, but we got tired of typing it in on people's Envoy tablets when visiting customers, so we got the initials as shorter domain, think "lcn.ai".

        Interestingly, the short form ended up supplanting the long one in all our communication.

        We used sedo.com, which afaict is the standard way to do transfers like this (legitimately). But the domain was already listed for sale on Namecheap, so I'm not sure how it would happen if you don't already have a listing you can purchase from.

        If you do try to buy the domain, negotiate the asking price - it's likely they'll go down at least a bit since nearly any sale is profit, and it's worth nothing to them unless it sells.

    A few years ago I got goose.ws and I've been happy with it. I wanted a short domain, and there were only a few two letters TLD's where "goose" was available.

    I would love to trade it out for goo.se but that'll never happen, someone else already has it, and domains that short are a rare commodity.

          I’ll preface this by saying I’m only running email, no website(s) yet, and email is one of those “mission critical” things I wouldn’t ever trust myself to self-host (or put the necessary time into).

          I initially registered the domain with GoDaddy (most probably due to them having good SEO at the time) for a while, before setting up the various emails in use now, and have since moved to IONOS as they are from my home country and have been a proven email hoster for my dad ever since I was a kid.

          I don’t know if this’ll change when I get around to creating my own homepage, but that is where I currently stand.
          And I’m pretty clueless on the whole topic, so please chime in if anyone has a better EU based solution/suggestion!

    It translates to email'
    s as well, even though I don't use them on the domain. But I can see emails like manzelka@pavoukovo.cz (Pavouk's wife) etc.

    So the domain is not smetging extravagant or fun, but it can be made funny by these little details.

        You could probably get a decent payout from a seedy* OnlyFans table-sitter type.

        *possibly a very poor choice of diction

        My sincerest apologies for subjecting you (and everyone else who reads this) to this horribly offensive thought.

    my personal site follows the format firstnamelastna.me, just using the .sh TLD. Fun to use in emails, but many sites don’t accept .sh TLDs because of bad validation logic or don’t allow me@ for similar reasons, so it’s nice to have a more “normal” one that uses .net as well.

    The most important reason for setting up your own domain name is never having to change your email address again, while also not being beholden to a service like gmail or yahoo (yeah, I'm old). I can move my email from one provider to another as service quality changes without any visible change to anyone else.

    I like having total control over the domain. I'll have to do a post on how I manage email signups with with a subdomain like spam.mydomain.com.

    I was looking for a neutral, nerdy domain to use for business email and picked up 314pies.net. Later I was able to get 314pies.com at auction for almost nothing. I like having it for business dealings.

    I also have several domains related to my name, my wife's name, and our family names for personal email.

    When my daughter was born, I registered <firstname>.me and <firstnameMiddlename>.com for her future use. By the time she is grown, women may not change their last names anymore when they get married, but both of those options will continue to be useful if she does.

    A good, unlikely to be taken family email domain is "SurnamesRUs.com" like the now defunct Toys'R'Us store name. Then you can do an address for everyone in the family.

      I associate most of my forum usernames with my real identity, like on hn, reddit, and tildes. I use an alt account for sensitive uses. I assume most people do the same?

      You're probably right. I deleted my post since in the cold light of day it's probably best not to link the various domains together let alone to a username.

      I'll leave filedump.net and thiscomputer.info behind though, since they are already linked to my username.

      filedump broke a while ago in terms of uploads, but I've left it online since there's literally decade (almost decades!) old uploads there that are still linked on forum posts and I'd hate to see those forum posts become useless because all the pictures it's referencing have gone.

    I have both my surname and my partner's surname at .cc, which is close enough to .com so people understand it. I don't know if .cc has flown under the radar in regards to registrations, but I just checked a handful of my friends' surnames and they were all available. Also super helpful that Cloudflare can now register .cc domains. So if you're looking for a domain that's just your surname, maybe you'll get lucky with .cc!

      I wonder if AI-generated audio is fast enough and sound good enough to just have it run an always-streaming audio that sounds like indistinguishable radio chatter? It’s not much but it sounds fun, and given I still occasionally go to hackertyper for goofy stuff, I could totally see myself occasionally heading to policeradiochatter for all my generic radio chatter sound needs :P

      And unlike most domain hacks, the main domain name and TLD are even separated in semantic meaning. It’s kinda crazy that worked out!

    A friend of mine has an "a" in their name. Let's say their name is David. They registered a domain just so their email address could be d@vid.org (but for their actual name).
