Discussion on: Do you buy domains for personal or side projects?

Every. Single. Year.

Over the years I have reduced the amount of domains I get on an impulse because I know I will end up doing nothing with them. I still have a bunch of domains though and sometimes I feel I've cornered myself, but then I just forget about it.

So far, for my personal use (not counting other side projects), I have my website domain (first name + last name + .com), my last name domain for my email address (lucky enough it was available!) and a couple of short versions of my initials with .co and .dev. I use the .co as a short redirect to my website and whenever I need some trash email address, and the .dev for all my experiments.

I hadn't thought about getting domains for just my last name or a shortened version of my name 👀
