The question of the day is: do I need my own domain name? dopey.me.uk is still free, and I'm kind of tempted by it. I'm inclined to feel that a subdomain (livredor.p5.org.uk) is pretty adequate, especially as my webpage is a companion page to this journal just now, and it's nice to have them vaguely unified. I think if I could come up with something brilliant, I'd register it (assuming I could do so with sensible top domains). Opinions? Suggestions?

memnumnam.[com|org|net] is available, and it's quite tempting.

Ag. Looking for a domain for myself, I chanced on www.prokaryote.com, which is owned by these nutters. I hope it's a piss-take...

Scary! Ouch.

There are variations on the prokaryote theme still available though. And why succumb to the stupid .com idiocy? You could pick an appropriate top level domain.

livredor.org and livredor.net are both available. (I have a .org domain, but depending on your feeling about internal rhyme, you might want .net on this one.)

That is absolutely brilliant. I think even brilliant enough that you don't need to rush to register it cos I doubt anyone else will come up with that idea. Though the internet is a big "place", so maybe to be on the safe side?

Hmm, dns.be doesn't seem to restrict its TLD to Belgian nationals only. Or at least, it doesn't say so anywhere that I can find! I think a lot of fun could be had with a .be address. Suggestions? Or is this a bad plan altogether?

haveto.beto use with an adjective as the directory name

No opinion on domain names, really (I'm content to live within greenend.org.uk) but I can recommend Black Cat as people to register them with. They do greenend.org.uk, miltonbrewery.co.uk, individualpubs.co.uk and so on and we've been quite happy with them.

Yeah. I've registered a number of domains with them and have been very impressed.

I suppose there's always ba.be - it's not our style of course but it has a certain je ne sais quoi (or should that be quelquechose?) I'm not a Live Journal user so not sure how or if this will come out and I don't want to be anonymous so I'll sign off - David (Downunder)

Oh, hello David. Thanks for this comment.

Yeah, I'm set up so anyone can comment, cos I'm not willing to force people onto this particular system.

ba.be (and most pronounceable two-letter combinations I suspect) is gone, sadly. I did think of that one. Still debating whether it's worth the extra hassle to get a funky .be domain, or whether I should just stick with a boring .uk one...

Instead of dopey.me.uk why you don't look for another domain name with a .com extension.

You should have a look to the following domain name registrars:

http://www.internet.bs (http://www.internet.bs)
http:/www.godaddy.com
http:/www.enom.com
