Discussion on how to find the perfect domain for our side project

Cover image by Markus Winkler

Coming up with an idea for a side project that we want to promote to the world can be difficult enough. What comes next is finding a good name for it... aaand Success! We found the perfect name that we love, we made a nice concept in our head about how to promote it and the excitement has begun.

Now it's time to buy a domain name for that and guess what... .com is not available. What shall we do? No non developer will take .io seriously. Buy a .co or .me domain? How about adding separating the each word in the name with a dash? Yes my-project.com is now available. But idk, this dash makes me not want to look at the name.

What shall we do in that case? Any other ideas?
