Help Name Our Website


#141

I like stackoverflow and privatevoid, but I came up with devhackers.com as another alternative.


#142

Hm, how about veloder.com?

I also liked fizzbuzz. :slight_smile: I think the whole “two innocuous words” thing might generally be good, particularly if it’s going to be a social site.

Hahaha, aintbroken.com would be amusing, though probably not ideal. :slight_smile: Sigh, I’m probably just giving these all away to squatters.

#143

why not jeffatwood.com?


#144

Having voted for stackoverflow.com, I’d like to add returnfalse.net (or .com or .org, of course).


#145

Oh, and friendeveloper.com isn’t taken. At least, not as I’m writing this… :slight_smile:

#146

How about:

completecoder or thecompletecoder
codeforall
codesmiths
happy-coders
alldaycoders
procoders or pro-coders
thecoders or the-coders

And my personal favorite:

codewhores


#147

hehe fun, here is my 10 min, havent had time to test.

bitminds.com
byteminded.com
code.rage.us (courageous… :slight_smile: )
code.foc.us (code focus … ( or code f#ck us, hehe ) )

But why not invent a name? Seem to me that alot of company names take 2 words and combine. Maybe Micro-soft started that trend. I once did a “company name” generator by combining two words, very funny. But dosent add any charm. You could just as well play Frodo112 or L3g0las in wow or some other sick world. Or maybe some other culture, Ubuntu is doing alright with their name.

But good luck! :slight_smile:

Don’t worry about cost associated with a domain squatted name - just but it, that’s what I did.

You’ll get the name you want, and domains are real estate - location, location, location.

codercorner.net

A developer community website is a great idea. I like IT Toolbox for professional networking but it is too broad in scope. Maybe you should name it “MyCode” if you want it to be the MySpace for developers.

ASP.NET Weblogs has been accepting everyone to blog there but I don’t see a strong community being created. I still think you need video communication to create a real sense of community. I’ve found several developer podcasts but they are scattered and hard to keep track of.


#151

The name should be funny so when people leave your website they remember it, but it should be easy to see that it’s funny. privatevoid requires some thinking for instance


#152

Manrico Corazzi: “what-the-hack”, ha!

I like that the best, but “deferenced.com” tops everything else on your list by a mile.

Remember there are other top level domains besides .com, too.


#153

what about devshag
or is it to 80’ies


#154

I would recommend this article; http://www.thinkvitamin.com/features/biz/how-to-name-your-company


#155

pointers4u.com


#156

yadcs.org [yet another developer community site]
ognadcs.org [oh god not another developer community site]
stopthemadness.org


#157

You’re much better off, IMHO, thinking of a distinctive, catchy name that doesn’t mean anything

This sounds like great advice until you try to actually do it.

doublefudge… you have no imagination!!! The following .com names are all available at the time of writing:

fangledoo.com
pippipo.com
limapop.com
quengol.com
xenaaz.com

And so the list goes on…

These took me a matter of seconds to think up.

I often don’t know what the title of a particular blog post will be until I’m 90% done writing it. This is a normal workflow, at least for me: things do not reveal themselves until you near the end.

So true. I appreciate you asking everyone to make suggestions, as I too have a hard time naming things. With this in mind, I hope you’ll come back when things are a bit more fleshed out (and not so private :wink: and ask for more suggestions if you still need them. I’m sure people will be more able to come up with appropriate suggestions.

Best of luck!


#159

First of all, I wish you the best of luck, I really enjoy reading your blog.

I was wondering why you have not applied the rule ‘double clikcing sucks’ to the voting button. :slight_smile:
