    Notion started the trend of .SO domains..
    Notion has built a stylish and modern website that reflects the tool that they are offering, an all-in-one workspace that helps teams to write, plan, and organize their workload.

    Notion.com is now forwarding to Notion.so

    Some interesting .so developed on site: .so google search

    Circle.so - Tribe.so
    Community platform
    Page one of Google for 'Circle' & 'Tribe' keywords

    Screen.so
    Screen's multiplayer screen sharing.

    Narrative.so
    Narrative empowers photographers to spend more time doing what they love.

    Fluently.so
    Writing and translation tools in one place.

    Rock.so
    Ignite.so
    ilo.so
    vim.so
    Mask.so
    & more....


    So, this thread for Discuss & Showcase .SO domains.

    Nikul sold rise.so

    And there was a guy selling some nice .so domain on wholesale on wholesale.. he was selling fire.so and send.so for 275 and a few other good ones. I was hesitating and they were gone next day. But it was available for a whole day :)

    Those were nice names to buy... But looks a bit like Bad. The adoption is not broad.. More like .vc
    Not many names would sell to justify a portfolio built with $200-300 per names imo

    Even at reg fee, 100 names would set me back by 6K and I would have to sell two names for 3k or 1 name fo 6 K just to break even.. I spent a day or so looking it up...

    But I like the extension... End users are usually like Single syllable short extensions. AT least better than NGTLDs unless the two words are super complementary

    Interesting to know if anybody else is invested.

    Ok, but what does .so stand for? I mean besides being the ccTLD of Somalia. I can't think of any "useful" meaning or abbreviation. Maybe Significant Other.

    Not feeling this one, from any angle.

    Infinity prefer .is as an "out of options" ccTLD.

    @kalr yes, it seems these companies started a new trend. My question is:

    - Could ".so" be the new ".io" ?

    I know ".io" stands for input-output and that has been marketed for years by tech companies, but one of the main points of using .io was namespace availability, which is not so common as of today for single-word domains.

    For now, it seems there are only high-priced fees for this extension, but at least I don't see ".so" as restricted as ".fm", which also has at common high availability and high price for registering.

    Namecheap has started to market this extension. Seems like ".so" may stand for social networks or software (not SO bad :xf.wink:)

    ".io" was very pricey at first as well and still is. Only with time and adoption became cheaper. This extension IMO can be a market opportunity for the startup business.

    Did not make that connection myself.... "sw" is a well-known abbreviation for software, though.

    and now they're getting memed for it on Twitter after their site went down, because you can't renew .so names until they expire..

    Hahaha

    even Recode.com re-directs to “Recode.net”

    There is no “Trend” LOL. Always a couple of anomalies.
