Which one is a better TLD for portfolio & blog?

I'm planning to register a domain name for my personal website. I am also planning to use the same for my blog and newsletter email.

Which one of these TLD should I go for?

  • .tech
  • .dev
  • .one
  • .me

I want to get it in my own name

Suggestions will be highly appreciated.

Yeah, I think .dev has the best ring to it.

Just to speak to my gut feeling on the bunch: The word "tech" is often used very broadly and is sort of an amorphous term. A tech blog could be an Apple product review site.

.one is interesting but seems a little... Off-putting.

.me is the second best IMO โ€” clever TLD for personal sites.

But yeah, if this is going to be a software blog, .dev is the way to go. ๐Ÿ‘

yep that's good in the optics for a technology blog. Like for example (totally random) this site, which displays posts around dev.

Everything works out I guess. I got a .net address. .one has a lot of potential for words. like some.one or similar.

If itโ€™s personal only Iโ€™d go for me. If you want to also use it as a portfolio, maybe .dev is better.
