Domain Name?

Domain Name?

From:

Hi all

Was going to go about buying a domain name, already have a slicehost slice
so getting a Rails/Sinatra app up and running for hosting a small user group
website should be straightforward.

Does anyone have any suggestions for domain names that they would like to
use?

birmingham-ruby.whatever seems a bit long to me.

Thanks

Omar

BRUG seems to fit the naming conventions but someone else already has it:
https://www.gandi.net/whois/details?search=brug.org.uk

I'm not opposed to a long URL if it is more descriptive though.

We should probably also try to be sure and indicate that it is the UK
Birmingham.  Wouldn't want any ruby enthusiasts working for city
council to get confused (again).

This is the American Birmingham user group:
http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/rubyham/

Hopefully a .uk name would indicate that

so does birmingham-ruby.org.uk sound ok?

Agreed.

I've never liked domain names with hyphens in them. How about:

birminghamruby.org.uk

birminghamrubyusers.org.uk

brumruby.org.uk

or my slightly silly (but perhaps easily confusable) favourite:

rubyham.org.uk

:-)

Pete.

Would be willing to drop the hyphen, the less letters the better.

Although I *really* like rubyham.org.uk it seems a bit weird too, unless
anyone has any objections I will plan on buying both birminghamruby.org.uk and
using brumruby.org.uk as a secondary domain name.
