# What domain name to use? [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
Write an Elevator Pitch / Tagline

## Note:

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 math.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]

Note: Please answer this question asking us to describe in brief what our community is about, rather than suggesting domain names. (— Isaac♦ 2010-10-05)

Any suggestions?

• Using big print doesn't make your answers any better. – bmargulies Jul 21 '10 at 12:33
• @bmargulies: It makes it easier to see only the domain name suggestions when scrolling through the page. – Larry Wang Jul 21 '10 at 12:36
• The rules are, it has to be available. 'Parked' != available. Would someone with privs please delete all the 'parked' answers, they just distract. – bmargulies Jul 23 '10 at 0:14
• @bmargulies: See the equivalent question on another stackexchange site. There is a quote from Joel that disagrees with you. – Larry Wang Jul 23 '10 at 0:44
• Indeed. I suspect I'm getting a lot of down-votes for that very misconception! – Noldorin Jul 23 '10 at 12:14
• Wierd. I could have sworn that Jeff was the poster of the requirement that domains be completely unclaimed. – bmargulies Jul 23 '10 at 15:39
• btw, is .com necessary? what about .info? – mau Aug 4 '10 at 10:36
• @mau: I would prefer .com over the other choices, except in the specific cases where edu, gov, org, mil, or net is justified, and I don't think any of those apply here. I would be opposed to info, biz, pro, and most of the country-specific TLDs. This is mostly an issue of reputation: many shady sites exist under such classifications, and few legitimate ones. A large majority of reputable sites exist under the .com TLD. A StackExchange/StackOverflow blog post outlines some guidelines for naming. – Larry Wang Aug 7 '10 at 2:57
• To be honest, reading through the list of proposals I find them all waaaaaaay worse than the current "math.stackexchange.com"! Do we really need to change the domain name? – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Sep 14 '10 at 16:22
• (in fact, if someone managed to get hold of exchange.com, then math.exchange.com would be quite ideal...) – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Sep 14 '10 at 16:23
• OK: it is pretty far in the future. I think it is safe to say that nobody's votes, answers, or edits to this proposal will be meaningful anymore. I am going to lock the thread for historical significance. (Note that, contrary to what the text in the lock says, this was a perfectly on topic question at the time it was asked.) – Alexander Gruber Jan 14 '15 at 2:53

Closest we can get to ∀Q∃A, as this answer suggests. Parked.

• If we could get something like $\forall Q \exists A$, it may have a sense. Well, actually in that case $\forall \delta \exists \varepsilon$ would be nicer IMO. But this not being possible, it simply looks nonsense. – Andrea Ferretti Aug 5 '10 at 14:26
• @Andrea: Actually, Unicode domain names are possible. See for example http://☃.net/ – Kevin H. Lin Aug 20 '10 at 21:50
• WOW!!! :-D I did not know that! – Andrea Ferretti Aug 22 '10 at 13:18
• I suggested the written-out form "ForAllQThereExistsA" because, although Unicode is allowed in domains, it's not obvious how to enter it into a browser. Not that writing it all out is terribly convenient. I would be on board with the Unicode as the "official" domain, with "AQEA.com" and "ForAllQThereExistsA.com" re-directing there. Best of all worlds. – Blue Aug 24 '10 at 9:48

• I vote against it because of a problem in German: "Locus" is a word for toilet (comparable to "John" in English, but less ambiguous). – balpha Jul 21 '10 at 7:19
