If you’re a developer, you’ve likely been eagerly anticipating the release of the .DEV domain name extension. The .DEV domain is the perfect way to tell the world that you’re a developer and provide a platform for you to share your work, teach others to love programming, and so much more. If you’re wondering how best to use your brand new .DEV domain name, then you’re in the right place. See our ideas for your .DEV domain name – we can’t wait to see what you build with it!

.DEV Domain Name for your Personal Website

Having a personal website is a great way to showcase your incredible projects and work as a developer. It can be tricky to discuss (not to mention, remember!) all the interesting and unique pieces you programmed for every project you were involved in. While it’s easy to remember the frustration of sifting through bug tickets, you built a lot of cool things in your career as a developer – and you’re only just beginning. Let employers, clients, and colleagues explore what you’ve created with a personal website that outlines your work history as a developer.

.DEV Domain Name to Teach Code

Teaching code inspires the next generation of people to learn to code and to love it. Whether you teach people how to launch their own website by learning front end development or diving into complex backend programming, it’s an important skill for people of any age. With careers in technology far outweighing the skilled labour available, this is a great time to learn a new skill (or should I say, language!) that can carry you on an exciting and rewarding career path.

.DEV Domain Name for a Technical Founder

You worked hard to build the tech company of your dreams – and you did the actual building. What you created took months of sweat, blood, and (definitely) tears. It was not easy to build your idea into a reality but now that you have, you want to share your journey. When the technology is working right, the audience may never notice, but you want to make sure other programmers and coders know their work doesn’t fly under the radar. You may not be the most front-facing person of the company, but you’re a key element to its entire success. Inspire other technical founders with a website that highlights your role in the company you founded.

.DEV Domain Name for your Developer Event

If you organize or host events for developers, the .DEV domain name lets people know who the event targets. Grow your audience and attract more developers to the events you run. Use your website to share information on your events, allow people to grab tickets, and offer channels for the attendees to connect, such as through a dedicated Slack workspace.

We can’t wait to see your .DEV domain name in action, don’t forget to share it with us on Twitter. The .DEV domain name will be available on Hover, at 11:00AM EST on the 28th of February. Grab your ideal domain name while you can. Happy domain hunting!
