    Website Title/Domain Name

    Ello once again, everyone! I have decided to heed the constant warnings about angelfire and geocities. I've already found a great web host that I've used before, including everything that I need/want. The only sticking point is... a domain name. So, I just wanted to know if I could petition the nice people at these boards to assist me? I've spent the past 3 days head-smacking, domain-typing, and [URL=http://www.infinitywebdesign.com/hosting/]Whois Checking[URL]. But it seems like every good name on the internet is take!!

    So if any of you are still reading, allow me to include a small description of what my website will consist of. If I had to describe this "Website-X"©, I would label it a personal website. First and formost, I will be using mein website to continue creating/testing new PHP-MySQL scripts, test new layouts/design techniques... you get the picture. My website will also serve as a (smallish) archive of my (very short) writings & such. I may even decide to write a blog script or some such thing. Pretty much the standard personal website, right?

    But I need a NAME!! A NAME!!! Now while I could, and many people do do this, simply use my name as a domain name, mein last name contains too many vowels for people to spell correctly, apparantly. Besides that, I'm not too comfortable with broadcasting my full name across the internet (I'm a city kid; can't understand how ruralites leave their doors unlocked). So I need something creative. Hence, I'm clueless about it all. So if any of you ingenious-type people would like to offer a helping hand, I would eternally enslave myself to you. Actually, make it a day, eternity is a bit long. Many Thanks for any help, if any...

    -Mr. Bob

    Ah, yes, good idea considering how often domain names get registered and NEVER USED BY STUPID COMPANIES!!!! Oh, and thankyou for your suggestion, creative, which I like. I'm going to be monitoring this thread and all until at least tomorrow and hopefully, if I get any more suggestions, I can pick my favorite? Hey, I can, erm, create a webpage shrine for the good people who help me?

    how about

    More of a journal than a blog.

    Truly great madness cannot be achieved without significant intelligence.

    You're going to love me!

    Hi - I think I have the answer to all your problems... (well maybe not all of them.... but...)

    Check out www.mydomainfriend.com - it's a great tool for creating new domains.... best of all, it's completely free.

    good luck.

    I know a guy who preferred to have his personal page have a completely unique domain so if someone searched for it, the only hit would be his site, or some random string. His site is www.luxfx.com I kind of like this idea, because really, how many times have you gone searching for random people's names, so you could read their blogs? It's better (in my mind) to have a unique domain that won't get confused with any other mr.bob's out there. Just a whipper-snapper's perceptions twisted around into comewhat incomprehensible advice... I need to get some sleep.
