Write and Elevator Pitch / Tagline
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 bicycles.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!"
[original message text below]
Post your ideas for a dot-com domain name for this website
Please follow these guidelines:
- Check to see if the domain is taken before making the name suggestion. Squatted and taken names, however clever, are not helpful. You can use whois.net to check availability.
- Post one domain per answer. This makes the voting process much easier. If domains are very similar (e.g. "game" and "games"), they can be in the same answer.
- Make sure the domain wasn't already suggested. To search within this question, use a search query such as: inquestion:1 "example.com" replacing example.com with the domain to search for
From "Stack Exchange FAQ: Domain Names":
- Please don’t think that it’s necessary to use a domain name that reflects something going wrong. We picked the name “Stack Overflow” because it has some meaning for real programmers, not because it reflected a bug or problem. “Super User” is just as good a name. I get depressed by all these suggestions of “BurntChicken.com”, “LostYarmulke.com”, and “FallenArches.com” (for former owners of McDonald’s franchises, of course).
- Look for jargon that has meaning to the group of people you want to attract. Insider jargon is the duck call of insiders. Look at me! If I can say “contributory negligence,” I must be a real lawyer!
- .coms are a million times better than other TLDs.
- A domain name should be readable over the phone. Even on AT&T Wireless. Tricky spellings are always a bad idea. Similarly, dashes reek of desperation.
- Long names are not the end of the world. Using two or three words (or a couple of digits) is a good way to find available domains.
(Or see section 4 on our own meta FAQ.)
Let's try to brainstorm for some concise, bicycle-related and easily identifiable jargon per Domain Name FAQ #2. If we use a word (or words) unique to bicycling, we'll more likely be able to secure a .com domain name without paying a fortune.
Similarly, we should avoid very common terminology (Bike/Cycle/Cyclist/Bicycle) and terminology not specific to bicycling (Rider/Wheel/Velocity/Tire/Chain).
Finally, when posting a new suggestion, please use this format:
