Question.

Ok.. so my personal domain is about to up and quit on me
That's darkcryst.co.uk if you were wondereing.

I've had it a while.. but I've never really been happy with it. Hell, since my site got wiped in a server mishap I've not replaced it, and a holding page is the only thing you'll see there. However I do need a web presence.

You see, I've never really been comfortable using DarkCryst as a web address. It's fine as a online nick and all, but its a lazy concatination, and is too hard for stupid people to remember. One person for example was convinced I was called Dark Cyst.. until I pointed out that its spelt differently. Not exactly great for a marketable web presence.

I could use Digital Waffle, but the .net version is already taken, I'd be looking for a dot com anyhow, but it still kinda feels like I'd be repeating something. Plus waffle just means "no content" or "evasive content" so.. again, not the best image I guess.

Not that making sence has a lot to do with anything online. Fark, HappyDog, Boing Boing, USS Clueless.. these are all names that have proven to be popular sites (though mostly blogging related I may add). I guess it just comes down to being happy with a name, or somehing that you can work with. Perhaps something that just sticks in the mind.

DarkCryst doesn't afford me that in a site name.

Plus my e-mail service with Another.com, great as they are, has been giving me problems. They are a pay webmail service.. about £15 for the whole year, so I concider that a good deal. However lately I have been getting spammed the crap about of, their spam filter doesn't work that well I guess, and many of my e-mails have been blocked to places.

It's the last part that bothers me most, spam being part of the net and all. They are a pay service, they shouldn't have managed to get lumped into the same catergory of free spam mail as hotmail, yahoo.. etc etc. Co-incidentally, my subscription to them runs out around the same time my domain does. Getting a new domain would give me a better e-mail option too.

So what domain name?

This is where I am horribly stuck, and would appreciate some suggestions from you all:

What should I use as a new domain?



It would be used for basically selling me to anyone, something I could put on a business card.. etc. I also might host twilight there when I get a chance... so, anything you can think of could help.

Thanks.
