It seems like everyone has an AI domain name generator. The folks over at DNSBelgium.Be tried to get ChatGPT to give them some domain name ideas. In a blog post they write:
We took ChatGPT’s prompt and ran with it. But not without throwing a couple of curve balls at ChatGPT to see how it would catch them.
The prompt was adapted for a bookshop. This is what we wrote: “Please generate creative domain name ideas for my new bookshop. I want the name to reflect the fact that all the books are secondhand, that the selection is hand picked to reflect the best writers, philosophers and poets of Belgium, that it is specifically centered on idea creation and the wish for a better future, it should appeal to people in their early thirties, city dwellers and idealists. It should be memorable, catchy, and easy to pronounce. Please avoid the words shop, book, second hand, and anything too long.”
The results were not too bad! What we got back was this:
“PapyrusDreams.com, PhiloVerse.com, InkWhisper.com, ImaginariumBelgium.com, MuseMind.com, EthosPages.com, LuminaryLibro.com, RenaissanceReads.com, IdeaHaven.com, UrbanIdeals.com, ProseAlchemy.com, EnvisionVerse.com, MelioraBooks.com, UtopiaScript.com, LumosLore.com
Remember, these are just suggestions to inspire you. Feel free to mix and match words, add your own creativity, or request further assistance to refine the options.”
The problem with a lot of the results are the domain names are already registered, at least the good ones are. As more and more people use these tools it will be interesting to see if they act as virtual salespeople for domain investors. If someone using the tool for their new startup sees all the names are taken maybe they will start searching GoDaddy and Sedo to buy one.
