Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline

Note:

We are closing this domain naming thread. It is asking the entirely wrong question. See this blog post for details: Domain Names: Wrong Question

We're going to keep the name unix.stackexchange.com. But we WILL be setting up redirects from the more "popular" domains names. (e.g. seasonedadvice.com to cooking.stackexchange.com, basicallymoney.com to money.stackexchange.com, and others as we go through the list).

New question: "Write and Elevator Pitch / Tagline!"

Click here to contribute ideas and vote.

[original message text below]


At some point if this turns into the success we all want it to be, we need to select a domain name.

So let the suggestions begin.

Please indicate if the domain is available, used, or just parked. Also please don't post more than one domain per answer so we can vote on them individually.

    I've only found two things certain in this life: death and taxes. – googletorp Aug 11 '10 at 1:30

    I suspect tax is the only universal constant. After all, we might invent immortality but someone will charge you for it... – user119 Aug 14 '10 at 21:07

  • @xenoterracide: might as well use dotslash... – Tobias Kienzler Aug 20 '10 at 9:05
  • I have one for Ubuntu SE unu.com it's an acronym for Ubuntu's Not Unix. haha – xenoterracide Sep 12 '10 at 20:38

kernelpanic.com If they're willing to pay it...

The domain is for sale... so... parked

  • kerneloops.com is free, however, it might clash with kerneloops.org? Not posted separately as along very similar lines to your suggestion. – user119 Aug 13 '10 at 20:15
  • I think their parked page suggests they want $9,930 for it? – 8128 Aug 18 '10 at 7:12
  • @fluteflute yeah something like that... which isn't super cheap but then again... If I recall SE is well funded so it shouldn't be impossible either. – xenoterracide Aug 19 '10 at 11:25
  • I really like the the KERNELPANIC.COM domain name... and I want to propose that the community setup an escrow account to raise the money to buy that domain. With roughly 1000 members in this community, the cost is about $9 each... less if more people join the community... Just my 2c. – λ Jonas Gorauskas Aug 21 '10 at 18:38

    @Jonas ... I don't donate money to for profit businesses ... – xenoterracide Aug 21 '10 at 20:36

    Like the name a lot! Would fit nicely with "StackOverflow" and "ServerFault" – polemon Aug 30 '10 at 3:25
  • Incredibly brilliant name. $10k seems achievable. – T.J. Crowder Sep 25 '10 at 11:09
  • @TJCrowder And rather fitting, given the pseudo-mod rep limit on the non-beta sites :) – Michael Mrozek Sep 26 '10 at 8:51

My suggestion:

manunix.com (man unix). There is actually a manual page for "man unix" which isn't about the system itself so that might cause confusion. However, sticking my neck out... eeek.

Domain is currently unregistered.

rm-rf.com (AVAILABLE for purchase)

  • This is my favorite. – Chris Aug 30 '10 at 13:10

beardedguru.com? :-P

edit: domain is available

5

unix.stackexchange.com

  • Our SE subdomain will continue to point to us (at least for a while) when/if we get a new domain, but assuming we do ever get our own domain we should have a choice ready – Michael Mrozek Oct 3 '10 at 3:17
  • @MichaelMrozek I posted it to see how it ranks against the other available suggestions. It is certainly better than the names I personally suggested (now deleted). – moberley Oct 3 '10 at 8:18

varquestions.com I'm thinking like if we stored questions in unix it'd be /var/questions.

available

1

coredump.com

seems parked

0

fsckit.com - It appears parked, not really used. One (broken) link.

0

kernelstall.com

is available

0

allaboutunix.com which is free

-1

hashbang.com AVAILABLE, Shebang.com used, or shbang.com appears parked but in chinese I don't really know.

  • 1
    I weirdly like hashbang.com, but it's not available. Interestingly, it resolves to 127.0.0.1, so you can use it as a localhost substitute; I'm not sure why they did that – Michael Mrozek Oct 5 '10 at 18:21
  • That is really weird. It's not occupied. Can't find anything about it on google. but some guy in San Fransisco owns it. May be he would be willing to sell for less than the $10,000 for the kernelpanic.com – Andrew Redd Oct 5 '10 at 19:30

  • forkbomb.co (AVAILABLE)
  • forkbomb.com (TAKEN)
-2

rmrfroot.com (AVAILABLE) (rm -rf / if someone didn't get it)

-2

dashdashhelp.com

available (and so is minusminushelp.com)

dashh.com is taken, but the owners don't seem to do much with it so it might be grabbable. Ditto for minush.com.

-2

v6andup.com not registered

-3

shellhackers.com feels too much like SO overlap, and possibly other upcoming area51 sites.

available

-3

procversion.com Thought of this from cat /proc/version

available

-4

manerrno.com of course this is unix for manual error number.

available

-5

Here is my try:

  • younicks.com
  • rtfman.com
