Do you own a domain name without a purpose? Let me give you a project for it!

In a rush? Head down to the comments and share a domain name you own without a purpose, I (and hopefully some others) will give you a fun side project idea for it!

For those not in a rush!

I own quite a few domain names. I recently wrote about my emoji domain 👩‍💻👨‍💻.to, I also own a domain name purely for the fact it sits on the million dollar homepage and is a part of internet history!

I even bought a domain name a few years ago that I still think could be great for a codepen competitor - codersplayground.co.uk!

Oh and don't forget ultimatemot*******kingwebsite.com (Warning, do not click this link if swearing offends you), which is probably the naughtiest domain I own and actually use!

Today, for the first time in a while, I bought a domain name that not only fit a big side project beautifully, but would also work for loads of different use cases.

It is probably the "best" (best when talking about commercial viability and an obvious use case) I have bought. In fact, I am that amazed it wasn't taken it prompted this whole article!

The domain is:


a2z.dev

I will be writing loads about that domain as it will feature heavily in my content creation strategy over the next year, but it had me thinking about all the domains I have bought over the years that maybe weren't as great!

Then I realised I can't be the only one with random domains (or really good domains that you are surprised weren't taken) sat idle and needing a purpose!

So that leads me to the question:

How many of you have random domains with no purpose?

As I said I have several domains that are good (and some not so good ones!), but have no purpose at the moment.

And I certainly can't be the only one.

So put your unused domain name into the comments below and I will come up with a fun project and possibly a serious project as well that you could build around that domain name!

I want to see who has a) the best domain name (can you beat a2z.dev?) and b) the silliest domain name.

Hopefully a bit of fun coming up with ideas for how to use a domain name will turn into a silly side project, that then turns into something beautiful and massive, and we can all say that it started here and we helped make it happen! 😁


Add your domain name(s) below that you want a project for and I (and hopefully others) will come up with a killer idea!

Oh man, I own a lot of domains without a reason. One of them is dail.one. I've thought about building a suite of web applications like notes, calendar, e-mail client etc. which then would all be placed beneath this domain but it turned out, I dont have this much time on my hand so I stopped 😅

I also have multiple Liferay domains (liferay.space, liferay.tech, liferay.blog, liferay.us, liferay.at, liferay.ch). I work in a company which uses Liferay to create digital workplaces for companies and I thought it would be funny to buy some domains and do something cool, but I really don't know what I should do with them 😂 Any idea is appreciated :)

OK so these are some tough ones, I doubt I will come up with a sensible one but let's see!

dail.one

  • You create custom voicemail answer machine messages for people that are voiced by "Dail", a virtual AI, they are free, but if anyone ever needs support your whole phone tree requires you to press 1 varying amounts of times to get to the right department (Dial one!).
  • A URL shortener that only works for Daily Mail articles published on the 1st of the month.
  • You create a course called "Digital Access for Independent Living", you sell it to governments to get older people and vulnerable people online to help towards inclusivity goals.

liferay

  • You have a sunflower in a blacked out room. People send positive tweets to an account and every tweet adds 30 seconds to a UV light run time to give the plant some much needed "life rays".
  • A site dedicated to preserving the habitats of Stingrays and reintroducing them into the wild.
  • A site where there is a 24 hour feed watching a guy called Ray. Think Truman show!
  • A live feed of the sun with motivational messages popping up on the screen on how to live a healthy life.
  • Liferay.space - you set up a super powerful laser that people can control remotely. They can point it at a planet (solar system) using a star chart and send a message in morse code to that planet to see if you get a response.

I have to admit, I struggled as they are both super specific lol, I will see if I come up with a better idea as I am not happy with these yet!

I do a stream all Sundays in Spanish called hablemos.dev talking about WebDev and related topics, and I recently acquired letstalk.dev (which is the english translation of the same name). I still didn't figured out what to do with it. For now it only redirects to hablemos.dev, but I might either do an english stream other day of the week, or I might just do english videos and upload them to YouTube directly under that name. Maybe a podcast? If only I was confident enough about my voice and pronunciation 🤣

Collapse
inhuofficial profile image
InHuOfficial Author

I mean the letstalk.dev (and spanish version) is an awesome domain name for streaming so I think you have a good purpose already (although a podcast would be great too obviously).

But that isn't the game so:

  • A site where developers actually use their voices to communicate...almost like this old thing called a phone call. Think voice notes in discord style / slack style chat threads.
  • A place where you can find out loads about your favourite developers (let stalk) and they post stories about their day to day activities so you can stalk them (get to know them!)
  • A Text to speech software platform that is optimised to read code in IDEs.

Those are my initial ideas! 🤣

InHuOfficial Author • Edited on

Well as most of these are NSFW I think I will have to be creative here and fly close to the line a bit!

  • catgirl.design - A very out there brand of clothing (probably ideal for e-thots!) that has the slogan "nice pussy" and the logo of a cat-girl. (I know this isn't a catgirl but money is money!)
  • femboy.us - tips and tricks for people who identify as femboys to improve their femininity and a community forum!
  • cock.trade - an online market where farmers can advertise their prized roosters and offer them out for impregnating hens - similar to bull breeding!
  • racist.live - a serious channel where people can ask the questions they want to ask but are afraid people would think are rascist. "Do black people...", "are white people...". Then panel members can give a real education on what is stereotyping and what is true etc. A moderators nightmare and probably not suitable for any Social Media ToC, but could be an awesome resource to get past the "you can't ask that" fear people have that stops them understanding each other!

Unfortunately I think any other ideas would not be suitable for DEV! 🤣 With that being said I imagine you could build a nice interconnected community with some of these domains.

  • if you don’t mind questionable marketing You become the next “smart water” and market that your water is more wet than other water as it is more diluted.
  • you turn a pickup truck into a herb garden and sell speciality herb mixes to Australians that are dried and just neeed rehydrating (Dil(herb) Ute(Utility vehicle is AUS))

Yeah, I went silly with all of them (except the two lutes idea, could be the next 2 Cellos! 🤣

I bought this one originally as a joke:
throwouterror.com. (instead of throw new error). However, it sounds a bit weird when you put it together as TOE 😂 i had originally owned toes.tech but it expired and it would have cost $40 to renew.

I also own malware.design. I don't want to make something illegal obviously - but maybe a learning site for cybersecurity would be neat?

I have many more weird domains but these were the ones that stood out to me.

Throwouterror.com

  • a site where people boast about things they found “dumpster diving” that were worth a fortune and rub it in the faces of the people who threw it out in error 😜
  • a site where developers can showcase the worst error messages they have ever seen and how completely unhelpful they are.
  • Throwouterror is a new error reporting library that can broadcast errors securely to multiple API endpoints for different processing requirements.
  • a sports clip site where you showcase wrong calls by referees calling things “out” when they were “in”.

Malware.design

  • “cyber security” game where you level up a computer virus (think plague.inc) and have to infect the world!
  • epic custom geek and tech merch (Mal Wear)
  • A site for architects working in Malwa in India who only do redesigns!
  • you start an ethical hacking and penetration testing company?

Where this becomes fun is that you can play it with friends (probably while drinking) so the questions will probably get a little risqué and you learn if your mates know more about your partner than you do as you can all vote on / give the correct answer!
  • doulove.me - a site for housing stray animals, like the RSPCA.
  • networkingcrew.com - An online business networking site with a twist. You for "crews" with businesses that compliment yours (same customer base but not competitors). The site let's you build a mini site for your crew that you can each refer your customers too and find each other business.

How about these?

  • siteaboutnothing.com - bought back in 2000 when I wanted a domain name just because everyone else had one. I was inspired by Seinfeld's "show about nothing" idea.

  • compufer.com - really similar to "computer", right??? 😂

Collapse
inhuofficial profile image
InHuOfficial Author
  • compufer.com - a site where you showcase major computer errors due to a typo in code, you can rank them by how much that mistake cost.
  • compufer.com - when your computer blue screens or things just don't work you go to this site and it shows videos of people doing unspeakable things to computers that you wish you could do to yours. Hitting them with baseball bats, throwing them in a lake etc. You leave the site feeling better as you have "virtually" destroyed a PC.
  • siteaboutnothing.com - You spend forever writing a massive story that doesn't actually say anything important and doesn't quite finish what it is trying to. People read it and feel uneasy as you never actually say anything that they can relate. You just keep saying things that sound like they make sense but they. Your sentences get more manic as you continue to.
  • siteaboutnothing.com - seems like a great site to explore the "great beyond" and the after life. Are we reincarnated, do we go to heaven, do we just cease to exist. You can explore all the different theories, religions etc!
  • siteaboutnothing.com - ideal name for a site about Space, seeing as 99.9%+ of it is indeed nothing!

That is really interesting (just spent a couple of minutes salivating over your baking!)

So my ideas:-

  • A website that sells "do it yourself" bread kits for artisan breads you can make at home.
  • You build a mini dam across a local river, add a water wheel and use the resulting power to grind flour to make bread that you then bake. (A Dam Bakes Bread). You live stream (pun intended) every week no matter what the weather.
  • You create a resource that helps restaurant owners, confectioners and bakers monetise their cooking and baking skills (playing on "bread" being "money")!

I might have some better ones in me so let me have a think!

Let's see if you can find some good ideas as I have been scratching my head for the past couple of months

  1. thedavidones.live - Used to be my blog till I coded my own blog as part of my personal website. Don't have a use for it right now.

  2. wavlink.ro - An old company idea which has been discontinued.

  3. galaxygamers.ro - When I was younger, I used to run a Minecraft server with this domain, now it has no use.

All of these currently point to a 404 on my server. Any ideas?

  • thedavidones.live - So you do live streams where you are high on "E", (The David on E's). All your guests must also be high on a class A drug.
  • wavlink.ro - A simple utility that cross fades multiple .wav files into a single continuous track. Bonus points if it can match tempos and pitch adjust so it can act as a virtual DJ.
  • galaxygamers.ro - You are the online arcade games portal for anything space. Space Invaders, Asteroid, Solar Jetman...you name it, you have it!
  • galaxygamers.ro - You do reviews of Android games, but only on a Samsung Galaxy phone.

Sorry but I think my brain broke on these ones, I didn't have anything clever!

Hi, this is awesome 👌. Love every bit of this post. I also have several country specific domains which include code.ng, class.ng, class.africa, plus.ng, girls.ng and who.ng

Class.africa was meant to be platform where students uploads their test and exams past questions to get experts answer then and earn a point when other students rate the past question uploaded when they find it useful. But I have been very lazy with it. Would love to work with someone that can help bring this to life.

The problem here is that most of these seem like very wholesome domains.

But I suppose I can ruin some of them for you! 🤣:

  • Class.africa - premade classes for all Programming languages that support Classes. All it does is output "Africa is a Continent not a Country..."
  • who.ng - You can start the Nigerian Doctor Who fan club
  • plus.ng - all you sell is one decal, but at bigger and bigger sizes every time it is bought. The decal is simply a plus symbol and the phrase "That is a big plus". Eventually it scales to the size of a building and people bid on the next size up to out meme each other / show their support. All proceeds go to a suitable charity that has a positive impact within Nigeria.
  • code.ng - I mean, this has to be a job portal / freelancer network for developers in Nigeria!

  • moon is a language similar to braille so you could create a service that converts text into moon that you then print. Businesses utilise you for their blind customers needs.
  • Similar to how people can buy stars you let people buy moons discovered around other planets as presents.
  • A website with lots of free code, libraries and assets, the catch is you can only access the site when it is a full moon.
  • A website that lets you enter your code for linting and error checking. If it is great you get an "over the moon" message an animation, if it is awful you get someone pulling a "moony" at you and an offensive message!
  • You develop a type face that consists entirely of different moons, it can be used instead of lorem ipsum for prototyping.
  • You point a telescope at the moon and analyse the resulting image in super high detail, infra red etc. You then use this to create a true random number generator based on the noise in the picture etc. and sell it to casinos and other people who need truly random numbers.

So this is a site where you share things that are troubling you. People then offer advice, support and general virtual hugs and love to help you solve your problem and you grow a community of friends to help you through tough times.

The service will expand to include paid professionals (psychologists) who monitor public conversations for warning signs that someone needs further (immediate) help and they jump in and support people who need it.

Each day you track your mood and write a little post (that can be public or private) that is prompted by certain questions designed to help you focus on positives.

The whole thing is paid for as a charity through corporate donations, the donors get a certificate explaining how many people their donation has helped. Or it is paid for as part of therapy services as a tool they use to replace diaries they normally ask people to fill out.

Sorry - I wasn't going to do a silly one for this one, I think this one needs to happen!

  • A site that allows people to upload a picture of themselves and cut out the face. You then add their face onto that of an imp from Dungeon Keeper and it strikes a random pose. This can then be used as their avatar (The Imp *p*ose)
  • Same thing as above but with Dominic Thiem (Theim pose)
  • You create some malware that is purely for trolling. It is similar to the original rick roll where a load of videos open up on the target computer. However this time it is Michael Jackson going "Tee Hee" on a loop. You impose MJ on people! (T-He impose)

I am in an opposite state got a few projects (ok 2) and a few ideas but just 1 domain, and that is reserved for my WIP portfolio site 🤣

That is what sub domains are for! Free way to get a space quickly when you don't have a domain name spare!

Then I think you should:

  • start a blog on hashnode
  • write amazingly high quality content
  • dominate the tech space by the time you are 18.

evilcommercials.com a failed video production company idea

pickafightwithawarlock.com from the rantings of Charlie Sheen

gremlinworx.com because it sounded cool

bblauncher.com was a blackberry app web site I used to operate

freakenstein.com my first domain, used to do web site development under that name

  • evilcommercials.com - You find adverts that are trying to be inclusive but are actually damaging and showcase them. You become a renowned critic of pandering and condescending crap commercials and offer a service to check advert concepts and storyboards before they are filmed, saving companies millions!
  • pickafightwithawarlock.com - A place where Dungeon and Dragons players can find local players (sorry, I don't play D and D, do they even have warlocks?). If they don't then it is for people who still play World of Warcraft to organise raiding parties (yet again, I don't play WoW so if my terminology is bad my apologies!). Basically a place where people can come together to form groups for fantasy games that need them.
  • gremlinworx.com - So you offer a specialised market place where super specialised workers can be hired by companies who need to "get rid of the gremlins and make things work".
  • bblauncher.com - you sell BB guns and related products. Alternatively you build a crowd investment platform that will only support businesses in the BB postcode area (zip code) in the UK - which is a town called Blackburn, or Barbados (BB Country Code) or Bourbon County, Kansas (state county code), or Brandenburg in Germany *ISO 3166-2 code)!
  • freakenstein.com - you showcase weird and wonderful design decisions where people have obviously copied one idea from one design and then an idea from an unrelated design and it looks awful. Think of it like reverse Dribbble!

I have whale-farming.com which achieves nothing right now but was intended as an opportunistic way of promoting the environmental benefits of whales.

Interesting

  • using Docker to host instances of algorithms to farm crypto currency
  • a load of high stake poker players (whales) who aren’t very good allow people to play against them with the winnings going to charities
  • annual event where everyone dresses up in whale costumes and help local farmers during picking season.
  • buy shares in a whaling company as part of a cooperative, once you have enough money to take a majority share you repurpose the whaling ships into produce transportation ships to help farmers rather than whale fishing.

I am not doing very well with this one either it seems!

I like the ship re-purposing :-)

Maybe this is the answer, getting paid to generate ecologically valuable whale poo?

  • As single origin coffees are very popular but normally expensive and shipped large distances making them less than ideal for the environment, you instead grow the same beans in local economies and create exact copies of popular brands that are cheaper and better for the environment.
  • You create an algorithm that analyses memes on the internet and works out who copied who. Eventually you trace great memes back to their original source and mint NFTs for the authors so they can make money from their ideas!
