I bought this domain awhile back just cause I wanted a .dev domain to be honest, it will be used as a dev port for freelance services. Registering a .dev domain has some slight differences from some other extensions. It’s plain and uncoded for now, but a bookmark to save for the coming months.
One of my hobbies is purchasing domains and even some connected to current sites which I never keep the host files. I am not trying to snake popular names, just some that appeal to my usual naming conventions or interests. I had a few offers over the years for a few, but they were low ballers, I buy from others so they were lower than what I’d offer.
I could post some of my coding lesson projects on the .dev site, I did customize a few slightly, I might add a couple I liked soon.
