What would you do if you got a nice 6 letter domain name?

    What would you do if you managed to snag a memorable, 6-letter, rhyming, brand able domain name? What kind of site would you make out of it? I was thinking a site with cool items but thisiswhyimbroke.com already has that down and there are millions of sites like that also. Then I thought about viralnova also.


    I am actually fishing for ideas. Honest.

    I kinda feel that if someone has a good idea that wasn't taken, they would use it instead of sharing.

    The thing is, OP, you only have a domain in your hands, which is 10-ish dollars atm. Basically, do whatever you would do with any other domain to make it popular- inest money and time in it. Without money you probably won't do shit with it. If it is not dictionary word, your domain is probably worth a reg fee.

    But sometimes one "bad" idea just leads to an improvised one. Besides, some people get too lazy to build on ideas so they just give it to someone who is not.

    Well it is two dictionary words. Very short 3 letter worded dictionary words added together to make six. Together they don't make another word though, if it makes sense.

    They are animal names. Example: catdog.com (NOT my domain name but similar)

    One of the word in my domain is also the part of a computer which can also be an animal.

    Any domain is as good as you brand it. Twitter.com would probably be useless if someone hadn't done anything with it.

    Which I plan on doing. I am going to spend time branding it. But hunting for ideas right now as I have no ideas for what kind of site to build it on.

    No. I love how people are trying to guess my domain name yet completely ignoring my initial question.

    That's because your question is far too vague.

    It's like saying 'I've got £20 in my wallet and I am going to the shop. What should I buy?'

    It doesn't seem like a difficult task to tell me what you think I should buy with $20. It might give me an idea. I also went more specific like : Has the name of a computer part and an animal.

    OK then.

    Start a payday loan site
    Start a site selling viagra
    Start a site selling insurance

    They are all lucrative niches

    Or start a site selling animal themed computer parts - that's probably not as lucrative, but would be perfect for the domain name you described.

    Make a pet related website then specifically to the name of the domain.
    Simple..
    Later sell animal food and accessories in that and make money :)

    RobBob.ext! :) You are Bob the owner of the e-shop, and you ask customers to rob (Bob's 98% discount shop). A discounted hellshop for the owner and shopping heaven for the visitors. Isn't it? If so I'm interested in becoming another happy 24x7 buyer there. lol


    P.S.:
    btw, the .mobi and .biz are available cheap! Go get them (both) and build a unique success story! :) Better than TWIAB?;) At least, you (as the owner) will definitely be broke in record time -- but you'll be satisfied to have made history!!!

    I don't recall telling you. But if you do know it, then better to keep it secret. Thanks.
