Re: choosing a new domain name

berliOS seems to be much like sf.net (they're running much the same version of alexandria) so I don't think the switch would be worthwhile.

Thanks kevin, those are exactly the kind of random suggestions i was hoping for smile

You can still just do something like put a /groups/s/si/singapore/htdocs/.htaccess (if i remember correctly) with

Code:

Redirect permanent / http://singapore.tamlyn.org/

Re: choosing a new domain name

What about

sing-a-pore.org|net

But changing the projects name would be the worst thing possible! Its a hole to the head. Your porject could even die.

Re: choosing a new domain name

Yes of course this url will be redirected to the new one but we still need a new one... Here is my summary so far:

sgal.org
+ short and sweet
- maybe too short and not sweet enough
singapore.tamlyn.org
+ similar format to the sf.net url
+ contains the word 'singapore'
- explicitly associates the project with me (which I don't mind but other people may object to)
singaporeum.com
+ contains the word 'singapore'
+ funny for native english speakers
- probably confuse non-native english speakers
sing.apore.net
+ amusing
- possibly confusing
- the only other word ending in apore is metapore which is "a rarely used term for apertura mediana ventriculi quarti" lol
ilovesingapore.org
+ includes the word 'singapore'
- sounds like a fan site
singaporegallery.org
+ most obvious name
+ contains most likely search terms
- a bit long

maybe we could use singaporegallery.org and alias sgal.org to it in a similar way to sourceforge.net and sf.net. Bah I don't know.

Re: choosing a new domain name

I just checked and .re is the ccTLD for Reunion Island.  And you can view the page in English.  And singapo.re is available.  And you have to be French and living on the island to register :-(  Oh well, figured it was worth a look.

Re: choosing a new domain name

Once you got the domain name means you can register your domain name here http://www.goresellers.com/  It have reseller plan if you get the reseller plan means you can get the hosting at very cheap cost...
