@bradenslen I like it! Found myself surprisingly happy with β€œ.xyz” too, given the choices available. πŸ—‚ πŸ‘©πŸ½β€πŸ’» 🌎

@bradenslen I like that name. I too have an .xyz domain for my projects. Can't say am happy -- enterprizes hate that. But then it's ok, it sounds, as you say, short, cool and is cheap. So πŸ‘πŸ½.

@grayareas Thanks! You are right .com is pretty well tapped out and some of the other "new" top level domains are very expensive.

@amit Thank you. Godaddy sure had it buried on their domain search. Truthfully, .xyz does not sound very businesslike. ICANN needs to come up with more business sounding top level domains the demand there is huge.

@johnjohnston Thanks John. I'm playing it by ear a bit to see what people are interested in. See what search terms are used, most used categories, clicks and that will give me an indication where to focus.

@bradenslen I've already found somethings I'd never normally see: β€˜Zymoglyphic Museum' & β€˜Hypnosis and Mind Control in the Movies’ The first I’ll go back to, the second I am just somehow glad it exists.

@johnjohnston Thanks! I wish I could take credit for finding the Zymoglyphic Museum but Kicks Condor found it orginally and it was so cool I had to add it. Hypnosis... remember when the web was full of quirky sites like that? We've lost so much.

Feel free to add your websites if/when you feel comfortable doing so.
