domain swap

A domain swap is a meetup at which attendees bring lists of domain names they've collected and swap them between each other in hopes that others might find them useful.


Examples

Bring a list of old domains you hesitantly keep renewing, domains that no longer fit, domains you've outgrown, domains you've had parked for years and haven't used. Give them away to friends, trade for better domains, and pick up some hot, new URLs for 2017.

How this Works
Come to Migration Brewing at 7pm with your laptop. We'll write all our domains on notecards. We'll all look at our collective compiled domain names on a projected spreedsheet, and pick out ones we want. Then we'll do ICANN transfers amongst ourselves. If multiple people want the same domain, you'll have to convince its registrant that you'll do something better with it. It's up to the registrant to decide. Domain trading is more than welcome.

This is also a LEAVE NO DOMAIN PARKED event. Let's get content on these URLs!


Brainstorming

  • One could use IndieWeb Events to plan future domain swaps.
  • Domain swaps could be adjacent events at Homebrew Website Clubs and IndieWebCamps.
