Eighteen letters. Eighteen! That’s how many letters there are in our domain. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen. WTF. You know why you know what WTF means? Cause it only has three letters. Phone numbers have seven digits. Everything good on the internet is short. I think that’s what’s holding us back. It takes me 45 minutes to write my email address. So now we need to find something shorter. Only problem is that everything short is already taken. Let’s see.
Idea one! Short just cause it is short.
- QJ.com – They sell diapers. I picked a random two letter domain and they sell diapers. Ugh.
- TSG.com – This would make sense. The Superficial Gallery, you know? It’s an IT company. Fuckers.
- TSG21.com – This one is actually available. Is that better?
Idea two! Word that doesn’t mean anything but you can remember it.
- Tumblr.com – If they could not get tumbler, why didn’t they just make it: tmblr?
- Amazon.com – They don’t get a link. Fuck them. Nobody gets a book from a river.
- Travelocity.com – They don’t get a link either. Travelocity sounds like a word.
Idea three! Two words that don’t go together but are put together cause people can remember them.
- Pimpfish – picture thing.
- Snapfish – another, different picture thing.
- Picturefish – I just wanted to see if it was a picture thing. it is. Fish don’t take pictures.
Out of the three, I’m thinking that the third option is best for us. We need to start thinking of two small words that go together that are easy to remember. Pity that buttfish.com is taken. 🙁 Any ideas?
What about Acadiashouse.com, that way little kids don’t have to lie to their parents when asked about what they did all day. It might even catch on…like teenager lingo, you know.
“What did you do today Billy?”
“I went to Acadias house.”
Acadias House = Pictures of half-naked women and lots of funny shit.

Good luck on that. I hear that all the best ones are already taken! 😉

well, http://www.acadiafish.com is not taken. Shit, you’re not a picture sharing site, that won’t work. Maybe:
@ James Melzer:
Unfortunately for your plan, it is also my house. vangeandacadiashouse.com isn’t appreciably shorter.
And don’t get any ideas about pinching MY fish…

@ Jenny Beans:
Swordsmash is my ace in the hole. I also think anything ‘smash’ would be good. ‘Cept buttsmash. Gonna bet that’s taken and I’m not looking it up.
@ James Melzer:
Usually people say they went “to Acadia’s house” just before they go see the sketch artist.
@ The Fitness Diva:
fitnesssmash.com is available but that’s too many s’s. buttdiva is unsurpisingly taken.
If it helps, “superficial gallery” is perfectly memorable for me. The trick is for me to associate the words with something; the text under “who we are” sorta works. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen the life of the party turn drunk and start being mean, but it could happen.

More bad news… fishbutt.com is also taken.
superficialgallery.com is perfectly reasonable for a domain name. If you want something shorter, say, for purposes of twitter linkage without having to resort to a url shortener, maybe you could go with something taking part of the words that make up what you’ve already got. Like maybe supfigal.com. Or is that too geeky?
.-= Janiss´s last blog ..Serving Military Pets =-.
All the ideas I had were taken too. I checked.
Hell, I even that of da instead of the since we all use “in da house” all the time. But dasg.com is taken too.
Sorry, out of ideas.

Sorry, I got nuthin’
I do think, your over-thinking. Your URL is working pretty well for ya’
The peeps don’t give a crap. With EC, site subscriptions, bookmarking, favorites, page rank. I think ya’ already have the bull by the nuts.
Just keep on keeping on…

Boohoo “nobody remembers my URL”..but guess what “whinyjerk.com” is available.
You are so creative !!! I wonder what you will come up with! Something that will make me laugh and laugh.

You could just make it, wearesofreakingawesome.com Oh wait. Negates the purpose, eh?

I do like the way you think, Cassie!
In the awkward contraction category, superfigal.com is available.
I think that there’s an unholy alliance between the Internic and GoDaddy such that any domain of 6 letters or less that is typed into the Internic WHOIS will arbitrarily be assigned as a GoDaddy-owned domain with a random past start date.
You are all bored now, I can tell. Go, look at the pseudo-porn; it will make you happy.
Wait, that is pretty long too. Never mind.

nice blog (: you should follow me on twitter @gr8p <33
Probably it is the hardest part to find a proper short URL, most normal URLs were bought long time ago, and those available cost around several hundred thousands.
