Project Description

Domain Name Shakeout: Share Your Ideas For Domain Names!

(see an example class project here)

Brainstorm a list of five potential domains for a new project you have, and narrow them down based on the criteria in this course.

For example, you may brainstorm five domain names, but then disregard...

  • one as being too long
  • one as not being memorable
  • one as being hard to spell
  • one as being good but having competition with similar trademarks.

After the "shakeout", you're left with one perfect domain

Your project assignment is to post your five brainstormed domain names, and the one you selected as the "best", with your reasoning if possible. :-)

Neil and Linda.
