On the back of a suggestion from James Governor I am going to set up a blog dedicated to Green issues. I have a strong interest in this area and have presented internationally on the topic but I don’t post much about it (and when I do post here, I feel I am polluting the stream with unrelated posts).
So, any suggestions for a great (available) domain name?
I have a Fire Eagle invite code as a prize! I will decide on a winner tomorrow (Friday 7th at 6pm GMT).

might i recommend something that does what it says on the tin. Like “How To Build Green Data Centers”. or “Data Center Eco Issues”. something that is eminently searchable. You want to be THE place that people hit on Google when they search the subject. I would concentrate on ambient findability. Of course it might be one of your entries earns that kind of canonical status. You might also say something like grassroots or something – to distinguish from the major vendor piches on the subject.
or maybe just “Data Center Hyper Energy Efficiency”
unfortunately someone is using the .com
greenissues.info or .net is also available – nice and simple.
green.er – not sure how the registration process goes in Eritrea though 🙂
Well you are moving to Spain and all..
All these are available
carbonbuddies.com is taken by me, I am working on a web based system to see can I encourage people to reduce their travel footprint. At the moment I am trying to get the spec written as it is my final year project and it has been accepted into the Irish final of the imagine cup (a Microsoft sponsored competition) as well.
Might contact you again in future as I might have quite a few environmental questions for you.
I hope you find the suggestions above useful, keep up the good blogging.
re james – is it a green blog or a green data centres blog…?
How about something like
They’re available :>)
Whatever it’s called, I look forward to it.
Wow! Some great names there I’d never have thought of, thanks everyone who has suggested domains so far.
Frank, re James’ suggestions, I think I’d prefer to go broader than just Green Data Centres (although that is the area I have most experience in).
bleener.com (register it quick if you want it 😉 )
grogger.ie (.com is gone)
Great idea! What about:
All the best with the project… Watching with interest!
This is too much fun!
is available, believe it or not.
Or do they allow numbers – I forget.
Well I just looked on godaddy for a name for you and found
Good name for a green blog!
Good luck from a free energy inventor!
Eritrea’s impossible I’m afraid. Been trying to get beech.er for years. 🙂
dahamsta: dig rochest.er – not impossible, but very very close 🙂
Well polluting the stream isn’t very green for a start….
How about “Tom Rafterys social conscience” or using you other blog as inspiration “ecopod leaders” although that might be a bit grim on reflection?
You know I love these makey-uppy ones!
Is it green issues in general, or green technology you’re looking to cover, and will it have an Irish or international focus?
The following suggestions are all available:
greenireland.net .org or .info
ecoblogireland.com .net .org
enviroblogireland .com .net .org
lowerfootprint.com .net .org
treadmoresoftly.com .net .org
There are probably heaps more… but that will hopefully give you some food for thought. Maybe you could get people to vote on it?
Once you have it set up, if you’re looking for someone to write the occasional guest post give me a shout.
FreshEir.com unless that’s a bit too oirish.
Thanks to everyone for their fantastic suggestions.
I had a really difficult time deciding on a domain from the wealth of ideas here but I eventually plumbed for Calvin’s suggestion of lowerfootprint.com
It is more generic than James’ suggestions while still keeping some of his suggestions around using important words in the title for seo.
Thanks everyone – an invite to Fire Eagle has been sent to Calvin.
Glad to help. Best of luck with the new blog… look forward to reading it.
An excellent idea. The scientific blogs are very helpful on Green Issues.
Wishing you every success.
Great stuff. It’s in my rss list already!
Hi Tom, saw this too late but wanted to give it a go – I thought “whatcarbonfootprint.com” or .net .eu .org .biz .info Or not!
So off these are great some are funny , but make sure you register all the .com .net etc
Why not consider the “Alternating Current” (.AC DOMAIN)
as a GREEN WAVE and GREEN DOMAIN
Examples: greenwave.ac (can be a clearing house blog) and so on….
I can offer Earthios.com $ Eartheos.com redirect if you’re willing to draw up a contract with my lawyer. You would have complete rights except for registrant, which will be private, for a 5 year minimum in exchange for small relevant advertising. I’m fair and flexible plus you wouldn’t have to pay anything for the domain name. Let me know your thoughts.
How about GreenitOUT.com ?
Seems it just about covers it all.
Let me know I own it.
i think they want big bucks but i know greenevolution.com is for sale..
