    Default Anyone going to buy a .dev domain?

    I quite fancy buying the .dev domain for my name. I use my company domain but tbh it's a pain to spell, so was thinking firstname@surname.dev might be the way to go.

    Google have gone for dutch auction approach for buying the .dev. Right now the domain I want has been reduced to £106 fee, then £82 for the year.

    Google Domains

    If i wait till Thursday then the fee is 0 but not sure if the £82 for the year will be reduced or what the renewal cost is.

    Anyone else dived in?

    I got nickfitz.dev from gandi.net today for, as I recall, £14 and change. I suppose I'll get around to doing something with it eventually…

    That Zeity chap went for TotalWorldDomination.dev and I've gone for GlobalThermonuclearWarWithCobaltThoriumG.dev.

    I bought my surname .dev will use it for email. My company name is difficult to spell, my surname is a little easier.

    I’m also going to setup aliases when I give it out to shops, online services. So for example johnlewis@surname.dev then i should be able to see who they pass my details onto.

    I waited till Thursday so didnt pay the fee. But paid the £82 because it was a premium domain and google wanted to take me for as much as possible.

    I'm using it now with my office 365 subscription and it's pretty cool.

    I looked up firstnamelastname.dev and it was something like €18/year. I looked up lastname.dev and it was 4-5X as much. I wonder what it's based on... just length? Whether the .com is taken as well?

    I'm not sure, I did a quick google and couldn't find anything useful. I know my Surname.com is gone and it's relatively well known (not by me), but yep no idea.

    Just looked and saw a great one for an old school photographer... C41.DEV.

    Still available for anyone out there with a Canon F1, Olympus OM-1n, Nikon F3 or Pentax LX

    A while ago a friend and I were seriously considering buying some .mp domains as they seemed cheap and available... tru.mp, etc. But it seemed this was not the case when we looked more closely.
