re: Go get your .dev domain! VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I bought my last name .dev so I could make my resume/Linkedin email kayla@lastname.dev (I tried going for kayla.dev but someone bought it early in the EAP when the fee was $350... I'm not paying hundreds for a vanity URL)

Half tempted to get some other combos of my names/screennames, but for now I'm sticking with my fancy email :)

 

Nice idea. Unfortunately my lastname is already taken.

But "lastname.dev" is available. As well as "mylastname.dev"

I wonder if someone was to register those, and just watch for misdirected emails, would that result in any? I can picture someone at a office somewhere, telling a colleague, just send me a mail at "Steve at my last name dot dev" and someone using that literally.

 

I'm thinking .dev will be enough of a niche domain that it wouldn't happen that often, though I'd make use of a generic catch-all mailbox like anything not admin forward to admin@lastname.dev to make sure I'd get to see those emails :)

 

I have notareal.email and I see all sorts of emails people think go nowhere.

 

Nice one! Email looks great!

Yeah, also tried for david.dev, but got bought at an insane price.
