What's in a "not-com" Name?

It's been 30 years of stagnancy on the Internet, but hold onto your hats because now there is an amazing new world of choice in naming on the Internet.  In a rollout that began in late 2013, hundreds of new domain endings are now available for use when crafting the URL for your website.  Isn't it about time that we get to customize our businesses with a unique dot com?  With many business owners it's hard to stand out in a crowd.  You have to have something that will make you different and that difference is a name that now can be personalized to your craft.


Four years ago I didn't have the option or help of naming my site.  It took me quite some time to figure it out and once I did, I was only offered a .com extension.  I was afraid that I'd be swept up in the massive overload of other blogs so I knew I had to work extra hard to be different.  However, now choosing the name doesn't have to be difficult because Name.Kitchen is there to help.  They offer tips, advice and inspiration to help you jump-start the name brainstorm.  You can choose .coffee, .life, .fitness, .deals, .business...anything you'd like!  You can use these tools and tips at http://name.kitchen/naming-tools.  Here is a perfect example:

  • Suyog Mody and Anu Menon ditched their corporate careers to create something from scratch: a coffee subscription service delivers fresh-roasted coffee personalized to your palette.
  • Mody says switching their domain to a ‘dot-coffee’ (.coffee) has been a great conversation starter with those curious about their two-year-old business, and it provides a more obvious digital storefront. “We are an online business exclusively selling online,” says Mody. “It’s a URL that implies what we do.”
