After 3 days hard-work of making a site to help domainers, I finally have something to show

    I always said here I'll do something with these domain names and develop them. So I got off my lazy ass and did something about it.

    Here's the deal: I have my main portfolio listed in Undeveloped, as well as some of my names posted up separately in BrandBucket and Namerific.... Now wait a sec, does that statement seem a bit odd to you?

    Well it did to me. I wanted a visually appealing portfolio of my best domains that I can manage myself, without a strict approval process getting in the way. And why not help others post their own too?

    Also for names that I love which won't make it to those branding marketplaces e.g. Jokes.wtf , I want to make a great logo for them that they deserve and showcase it on my portfolio.

    Without further ado the site is: http://namifieds.com

    You can read more about my rationale on the Readme: https://namifieds.com/readme/

    I would appreciate some feedback to the website, and if you decide to use it that's awesome too.
    Thank you 🐱

    ----
    • One of my main questions is if the filter system is good enough?
      Currently when you scroll down and load more from the infinite scroll, the order system won't take new posts into account. So you have to click on a filter to sort it again after new posts load.
    • TODO: Add filters for mobile and improve the mobile friendliness.
    • TODO: Social media one-click register.
    • TODO: When PMing someone via link, their names need to be on the TO: mail automatically.

    Very nice.

    This could be the result of not having a cron job running.

    Thanks people.

    Also another random thought popped up. Is having a logo requirement too much? I was thinking at one point to have an AI generate it or something.

    My thought process in requiring a logo is that 1. there is cool logo generator sites like logojoy.com and 2. Usually with your high quality names you would want a good logo to represent them if they don't have one already.
    It's more to do with how it's currently coded I believe. It uses javascript to poll the existing posts when you click the filter button, rather than using a php sorting query. So yeah I'm wondering if this will cause usability issues down the line.

    You could separate domains by that logo requirement. Put the domains with no logo on another page in more of a list or grid with just the name and others that have the logo can go in the box grid with their logos.

    I had a quick look just now, and really like the clean look and responsive feel. Free and always? It seems too good to be true! Thanks on behalf of the community, I think it will have a significant impact!

    Thanks,

    Bob

    ps re approval one might want to expand to mention that TM obviously should not be in either domains or logo elements.

    I like it as well...very neat and, as said above, I like the responsiveness in how the names move when categories are selected.

    Good suggestion but the place will get littered with non-logo names and lower the quality of the site :P

    This is of course unless I hide them and have a checkbox to show non-logo names in the front-page; or have a separate page for non-logo domains -- which seems a bit counter-intuitive to me.

    So I guess for the time being it will be a creative portfolio to encourage making / generating your own logos. I wonder if it's too much trouble for people though, it's quite a dilemma. The best would be to have a logo generator implemented within the site like Logojoy, or Canva etc.

    I can put that on todo list if there's enough demand.

    Thanks for your kind words. Also very helpful as always Bob, I added your point :)

    Yes it will be hard to keep it free, because some of the work will be manual maintenance. But maybe I can implement a flag feature in future so users can flag bad posts to be automatically deactivated.

    I admire the pinterest / discord model of keeping it free, at least for a very long time then only insert some minor advertisements etc.

    Absolutely great work, great website, great everything

    only one tiny problem........

    I'll never remember the domain name, it seems odd and cumbersome.

    namifieds

    I thought if I said it a dozen times I would remember.

    Unfortunately.... not so, unless I bookmark it I will probably have problems finding it tomorrow.

    sorry

    XD

    Yeah... it's a good point. I thought it's quite catchy myself combining name with classifieds. But to a non-english speaker it's very hard to understand or spell.

    It's not too late for me to try another domain name, if everyone else thinks its for the best.
     
  13. Looks good. Only suggestion is make prices a little darker.

    Well as an English speaking person it unfortunately did not connect for me.
    (unless you thought Canadians don't speak English :xf.grin:)

    name with Classifieds = namifieds

    Makes sense to me now but the " i " in the middle throws me.

    I'm more apt to remember now that I see the classified connection (y)

    Would I personally use it in a project or site launch..... probably not. :unsure:

  15. I agree. I am not really feeling the name.

    You don't really need a tier 1 domain, but something more brandable and memorable would not hurt.

    Ok thank you guys.

    Since you all liked the concept, I decided to fork out an arm and leg and get Namefol.io for $30 usd reg fee. Namefolio.com is currently BIN for $4000 USD apparently haha.

    I guess it will look good like Namefol.io/yourname as your portfolio handle.

    Quick logo concept by Logojoy (not final)

    It wasn't targeted to you specifically, my mother who isn't a native speaker couldn't spell it too lol.

    SATURN 1_20180912_065212.png Hi @cixxy ...

    Just noticed this thread and read all the conversation...

    Checked your site...
    It looks clean and user friendly (easy to use)

    Great work...and hope you get more exposure...

    Coming to name... I too realised that it is combination of name + classifieds...

    If you are willing to change and also thinking of ccTLDs for that (I know .io is more than ccTLD for anyone talking about brands/startups)

    ...but don't you miss .com advantage (as here they say...king !)
    ...and did you considered "brand" word in title... I mean it is obvious and definitely more catchy than "name"
    ... I checked on mobile...and the homepage is good..the site name is looking very small and not standing out..


    I am no expert or a big user of these type of sites...
    Just my observations..
    Thanks

    That works a lot better- great name. Worth the extra bucks.

    So the site is gorgeous. Really well done. Keep it well-tuned she'll run smoothly. Keep it up!

    Thank you and for your observations @vravis9

    Yeah I'm aware of the logo problem. The Mobile layout definitely needs work. But this new logo on http://namefol.io should be right!

    I like IO because of the innovation vibe that comes from it, which also resonates with this domain hack name and the website itself because of Input/output and buying/selling.

    I did think of Brandfolio indeed. Both Brandfolio.com & Brandfol.io was taken so it made my decision easier.

    Also the fact that sometimes domain names aren't brands, like some keyword domains (e.g. my domain VegetarianCurry.com) so it's more flexible in that regard being called a name.

    That's great to hear, thank you so much for the kind words 🍻🍻🍻

    I really like the new name concept and I had a pretty good idea.

    I won't post it, I'll PM you the details so nobody else grabs it...
     
  21. Looks great, much better name. You will always be improving. Font on prices needs to be darker or same color as link in bottom left of each logo
    Reasonable pricing, their decent names. Put a number on those last few

    Hey @cixxy ...

    Namefol.io looks great now...

    The site name is more visible..

    So I guess you are counting on availability criteria for naming...
    Fair enough..

    Good luck.. :)
