    Heya,

    I'm going to buy a Domain for my webhosting and mailserver and my cloud, but I don't know a name for it.

    Requirements:
    -not to long
    -sounds good

    -for mail: (example) jurre@mail.nl
    - for site mail.nl
    - cloud goes trough site.

    So it should sounds nice with those 2 things

    Yours faithfully,

    Jurre

    Why would you want to buy this? There are lots of free alternatives out there.

    First problem when going for free. Others are site security, size, ... Perhaps suggest one of these free alternatives which are good.

    I don't mind paying for my domains. I even go ahead and pay for hosting too.

    A lot of people do their names as a domain. This helps especially if you are into politics :-).

    A lot of other things to consider is a name consolidation. Meaning, take all your usernames on the different games you play and choose ONE cool one. Make that your domain name. Myaumix.nl is available.

    Some things available: nljurre.eu , nljure.nl , nl4life.nl , iamjurre.nl

    Kind of hard to figure out names without knowing WHO you are and what interests you.

    Trust me. If you're planning to setup your own mailserver, please don't. You'll get in too much trouble doing it...

    Jelle, do you mean hosting your own? I'm a bit leary about hosting anything from my home/connection. The janitor at an IT place knows more about online security than I do.

    I wouldn't recommend hosting from your home.
    You can get DDoSed very easily and let's not talk about other security problems...

    What are you going to study? I don't think you'll have to setup your own mailserver the first year.
    Setting up a mailserver requires you to be very precise with all the settings. When you fail one step your mail will be marked as spam. Even if you are able to set it up completely fine your mails will get marked as spam by lots of providers because they do not know your IP.
    I'm not going to start about the security issues you can create with mailservers...

    Also, hosting from home is slow and not recommended for security reasons.
